This list is dedicated to girlfriends, as it features the best girlfriend songs of all time. Some of these songs about girlfriends have the word in the title, while others were written about specific women who dated these rock stars, rappers and country musicians. So many of the best songs of all-time have been written about relationships and at least half of those tracks are about girlfriends. Again, not all of these songs are romantic. For example, "She Has A Girlfriend Now" by Reel Big Fish is about a woman leaving a man for another woman.

“Girlfriend in a Coma” is a great song that illustrates the cynical humor and pop aesthetic of The Smiths. Prince's “If I Was Your Girlfriend” is definitely one of the top songs about a girlfriend, as is “Girlfriend Is Better” by the Talking Heads.

Jack Johnson wrote the song “Bubble Toes” for his future-wife and Toto wrote “Rosanna” about Rosanna Arquette, who was dating the group's keyboard player at the time. “Maggie Mae,” which Rod Stewart wrote about the first woman he ever slept with, also appears on this list of the best songs about a girlfriend.
