On a first-name basis

Created by Loot on 10 Feb 2018 | Last edited by Loot on 15 Feb 2018

This is my first collection and it's just for fun.
The idea is to add songs that have one person's first name, male or female, as their title (and only one name, nothing else, not even in parentheses).
I'll probably just add one song for each name, in cases where there are more than one.
I'll really appreciate all suggestions, but please don't get upset if I, for one reason or another, won't add your song; it won't be meant as a personal slight, I assure you.
For example, I won't add songs the lyrics of which I can't understand, and which don't have a translation in a language I can read.
And I'd prefer to add songs that have videos attached to them.

I will probably add some information about the songs later, at least for some of them.

Apparently I need to add sub-collections in order to manage this, and for the moment it doesn't seem to work, so this is a work in progress.

The inclusion of this song may seem to break the "one name and one name only in the title (and nothing else, even in parentheses)" rule, but the thing is, I have no clue why it's added to LT as "Cecilia (Celia)" when it was clearly titled "Cecilia" when it was first published.

Thanks for your suggestions! I'll update my collection later on.

Oh, your poor brother... Sad smile
Even though I like the "Jérémie" song a lot more than the "Andy" one, I consider it too close to "Jeremy" which is already on the list. Confused smile
If I grow tired of Pearl Jam later on, I might let it in though Regular smile

Thanks! Regular smile
The link for "Michael" links to the "Ziggy" song by Céline Dion.
Well, I guess "Lady" can be a name, but even though it's spelled with only a sign here, I still consider "&" to be a word, and I've decided to only add songs with one name and one name only in their titles. Wink smile
"Anna" doesn't seem to be the full title for the "Anna" song, and it's the same thing with the "Ziggy" song, even though it's in parentheses. And "Michelle", well... It was originally done by The Beatles, and it had already been suggested by [@petit élève], but the others have been added.

I like the "Abraham, Martin and John" song, but I've decided to only add songs with only one name in the title, and no other words.

I can't go through them all, it takes too long; I'll just add them indiscriminately. Well, not quite indiscriminately; for the time being I will only add songs with one name in the title (but I might perhaps change my mind later). Thank you all for your suggestions!

Thin Lizzy's "Sarah" isn't added to LT yet (please do!), but both "Mandy" and "Suzanne" have been added to the collection (although @maluca suggested the latter one first).

Loot    Thu, 15/02/2018 - 01:47

I'll have to think twice before adding this one... I'm still recovering from hearing it everywhere all the time, back when it was released... Wink smile

Thank you for your many suggestions, but as far as I know, we can only add songs that are already on Lyrics Translate to our collections, so you would help me out more if you linked to the songs here on LT. Regular smile

Oh damn! I'm new ... Sorry for that... will update

It's an easy mistake to make, since the videos are featured so prominently in the collections, and at first I too thought we were supposed to add YouTube links. Regular smile
