30 Day Song Challenge – Day 21 – A Song With A Person’s Name In It

Today’s challenge invites us to share a song with someone’s name in the title. Obviously lots to choose from, but this song is one I’ve loved since I first bought the album it’s own, the year it came out, and which I cover form time to time.

Here’s Concrete Blonde, with “Caroline”


30 Day Song Challenge – Day 20 – A Song That Has Many Meanings To You


30 Day Song Challenge – Day 22 – A Song That Moves You Forward


  1. Eric Coleman

    My favorite CB song. It reminds me of, well, so many people I have known.

  2. Heather Munn

    Not my song, but I’ll see your Caroline:

  3. Paul Kwinn

    It’s funny: my first thought was an Elvis Costello song, but even though a name is the most notable lyric in the chorus, it’s not the title. So I’ll choose this one: Elvis covering someone else’s song:

  4. Joey Shoji

    I was given that album by multiple folks because of the other one-word name song. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Jim Poltrone

    From an underrated album: Turnstiles. (His 3rd of 4th, depending on whether you count the initial release of CSH.) I love the use (and sound) of the [Fender] Rhodes electric piano here, and Richie Cannata’s soprano sax.

  6. Bruce Adelsohn

    Here’s one that I’m fairly sure you (Rob) love as much as I do.

  7. Heather Munn

    One of my favorites for it’s subtlety:

  8. Jim Poltrone

    This one goes back to 1974 or ’75. This band has its roots in Columbus and Cincinnati.

  9. Blind Lemming Chiffon

    The first one that popped into my mind -- and a great song:

    • Paul Kwinn

      ! This is the song I was referring to in my comment. I thought the name of this song was My Aim Is True, but it turns out that’s just the name of the album. Live and learn. Thanks Chris. :{)}

    • Chris Malme

      Paul: I did wonder. ๐Ÿ™‚

      In your defence, although the album listed the title as “Alison”, a lot of DJs used to refer to it as “Alison (My Aim Is True)”

  10. Tim Ryan

    “Weird Al” Yankovic -- Melanie
    From the wierd Al song “Melanie” from the album even worse… this is a fan film

  11. Juanita Coulson

    Does “Josephine” or ” Ragtime Cowboy Joe” count?.

    • Rob Wynne

      I really love that arrangement. The original is full of the fiery intensity of youth, and full of longing and urgent potential. The acoustic version is a reflection of a sadder, wiser man, looking back with a wistful ache. Masterful.

  12. Dell Christy

    I have two from Gordon Lightfoot…

  13. T J Burnside Clapp

    I’ll raise you another Caroline! (With Elton John on background vocals.) ๐Ÿ™‚
