Name that song! What are your favorite songs with a name in the title?
This question was inspired by my response to a contact's question. It was in regards to a song dedication for her dog that passed away. I responded with Henry Gross - "Shannon"
I always get a kick when on YouTube, I read comments such as "My name is _______ and my parents named me after this song"..
That said, one of my faves was a power ballad that I used to dedicate to an ex girlfriend of mine..
Boston - "Amanda"
I know The Beatles have had many..What's your favorite? Oh, and BTW, no generic list in alphabetical order, please.

I'd say my favourite song with a name in was Tom Sawyer by Rush.
My top 5 would go:
Rush - Tom Sawyer
Police - Roxanne
Rhiannon - Fleetwood Mac
Boston - Amanda (fantastic choice man, love Boston)
Foreigner - Luanne
I have no specific reason for liking the songs unfortunately, other than how awesome they are.
Favourite Beatles named song is probably Hey Jude, can't help it, it's a great song (I don't profess to be a huge Beatles fan!).
