Songlist of ladies names III (The Letter C)

This is where it begins to get interesting as there is potentially a huge array of choices here.

Candy – Cameo

As utterly misinterpreted by Mariah (whom coincidentally has never been on fire), this knockout original has all those good things including a semi-constipated Larry Blackmon confessing every type of berry his ladylove shares the aroma of.

Hilarious video guest starring the return of the red codpiece (by now presumably a little musky) & everyone partying between Larry’s legs

That Petrol Emotion’s (featuring members of Magazine) Candy Loves Satelite & Car’s Candy-O completes the potential 3-piece suite/sweet – see what i did there?

Oh Carolina– Shaggy (Trad. Arr.)

Could only ever be the ‘rasclart boobaclart’ version (believe me you wouldn’t wanna know what it translates as in English). Still somehow lovable & infectious as Dutch Elm disease to those on the UK mainland

Could he be the world’s most successful Jamacian/Japanese crossover artist?

Cindy C – Prince

As in Crawford; from his notoriously-withdrawn Black Album that was eventually released 5 years after the initial pressing in 1993. Like there’s more than one “actress/model oooh from Paris, France” This is playfully funky & much looser than his usual party fare which makes you wonder why he felt it such a negative influence when less than half is minimalist rap. The recording of this album was rumoured to be the only occasion Prince indulged in chemical drugs by taking E according to Per Nilsen’s bio!

As for the music, he usually composes in far more difficult keys…

Corinna – Taj Mahal

Tender and bittersweet, could’ve chosen Clara (St Kitts Woman) about his dear old Grandma instead

Countess Bathory – Venom

Haha! This is completely OTT & gains entry purely for the folklore attached to this historic witch-like figure based on the spurious allegation that she bathed in her victim’s blood in an effort to stay forever youthful…and to achieve that Pantene shine. 

Other options were;

Does Caroline Know? – Talk Talk

Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond

Don’t even think about it buddy

Carolyn’s Fingers/Cicely – Cocteau Twins

Cecilia – Paul Simon (& Garfunkel)

As utterly misinterpreted by Suggs of Madness (whom coincidentally has never got up to wash his face whilst being replaced in bed)

Cecelia Ann – Pixies

Charlottethe Harlot – Iron Maiden

Chloe – Ry Cooder

Cleopatra – Cleopatra

More a group manifesto of solidarity than the ancient Egyptian pharaoh but still…

  1. The Beach Boys’ ‘Caroline, No’ is another one. An interesting fact is that the protagonist was originally going to be named Carol and the song ‘Carol, I Know’, but Tony Asher, the song’s lyricist, misunderstood the title. They do sound the same if you read both out loud.
