    "Cecilia" by Simon & Garfunkel missed the list, but a snappy tune in it's day

    Whoops. I misread the criteria. This has a woman’s name IN the title, not AS the title.

    I won't vote.

    I think Layla is probably the best, but as a (former) musician, I like Rhiannon and Maggie May (not in either order) probably more.

    I like Lola and Angie, of those on the list. ALL the others that have been suggested are great too. There isn't just one.

    I think I used to date miss Cowbell. At least her name rings a bell. Maybe her face too.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    I voted for Angie just because I like the Stones.

    If Althea by the Grateful Dead was listed I would have gone with that.
    The world is a magical place full of people waiting to be offended by something.

    I enjoy the subtext to this one, that she's not a real woman but his musical muse.

    There are considerably less good songs with men's names in the title

    Because there are considerably fewer men worth writing songs about.
