Featured Song Review *

(reprise) The beautiful heart-wrenching song, May, on James Durbin's 2011 debut album "Memories of a Beautiful Disaster" was written by Doug Brown of SafetySuit.

The story in this song is not complicated; it is a song about life, love, and loss and how the memory of a lost love can last forever. Keep your tissues handy because this one is a tear-jerker. James Durbin said in an interview, “… I had to re-sing this song a lot in the studio. I was getting so emotional that we had to keep stopping because I’d literally be bawling.”

The song tells the story of two young people who fall in love and share their lives together. The singer holds on to the memory of his one true love even after her untimely passing. He tells of the challenges he faces raising their daughter without the help of his wife, May.

James Durbin was a finalist on American Idol, season ten in 2011. He finished in fourth place and was one of the eight who were signed to record labels that season. Listen to James Durbin’s beautiful song, May.

Top Love Songs with women's names in the title

Top 40 love songs with girls names in the title, or songs named after girls or with women's names in the title. This list only includes songs of love and affection for that special girl, wife, mother, sister, friend, lover or wannabe lover. Without regard to genre (Rock, R&B, Country, Punk, Rap, etc.) each of these songs became a chart topping hit; all but a few were top ten songs and many were number 1 hits! These love songs all have a woman's name in the title and it is a song about her; not about a place, animal, thing, road, car or boat. Song titles only have first names, no last names and none with multiple names. Here’s our list of the top 40 best love songs with a girl’s name in the title!

My thoughts and comments*

What is so special about girls name songs? Who writes songs with girls names and why? These are songs written about a friend, mother, sister, daughter, wife, girlfriend or any girl or woman we care about. Someone cared enough about this girl to write a song about her. Focused on songs with women's names, we honor women in songs.

Is there anything more important than music written about a key person in our life; a person we admire, love, despise or cherish? Sure, some of these songs are just plain fun or silly, but usually they are written about real people and real strong feelings. Listen to Steve Perry singing Oh Sherrie.

I first became interested in this kind of song as a young teenager. I remember feeling the pain of unrequited love when Paul Anka sang about his yearning for Diana in 1957. And I remember the heart-break sadness of Ray Peterson in 1960 who sang Tell Laura I Love Her

And just like when we read a book, watch a movie, or listen to a story, these songs touch our hearts. We can easily relate to the words and feelings of the song; we feel the love. We smile, sigh, and cry right along with the singer.

I hope you enjoy this list of songs with girls names in the title or lyrics and please email me or post comments and suggestions for songs I missed or corrections to anything I post.

I also think the village would be well served to ensure the health and well-being of the child’s mother and to assure a healthy birth so that the child has a better chance of reaching responsible adulthood. This we do, not just for the benefit of the child, but for the enrichment of the entire village. Happy, healthy, productive people benefit all of society, and it starts with a healthy childbirth and happy mother. djd
