List Rules Only songs with a girl's name in the title, not in the lyrics

There are many great songs with a girl's or woman's name in the song title. From the advent of popular music, crooners, rockers, rappers and country music stars have used a girl's name in their songs. Many of the biggest bands in music history have done this. Several of The Beatles biggest songs have used a girl's name in its title. "Eleanor Rigby," "Dear Prudence" and "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" are three examples of Beatles songs that contain a girl's name. The same goes for their counterpart in the Rolling Stones. "Ruby Tuesday," "Angie" and "Sweet Virginia" are three songs where Mick Jagger sings about women by name.

Other famous fictional ladies who have been mentioned in songs include "Layla" by Derek and the Dominos, Rod Stewart's "Maggie May" and the unforgettable "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond.
