    Have to admit I am a bit of a sucker for a good tune about a girl.

    There’s just something about them that can make a song and it’s lyrics feel genuinely heartfelt and personal (even those that may not actually be from the heart and where the name just fits a particular song or title) It just adds something special in my view.

    What are your favourites?

    I’ll start with this classic from 1970...

    Edison Lighthouse - Love Grows (Where my Rosemary Goes)

    EDIT: I guess that doesn’t really quite fit the OP since it’s an instrumental.
