I've got Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles and Eleanor by the Turtles. Luckily, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes cover the second one giving me a song with my name in it that isn't wholly depressing and/or just pop.

Hmm, if your name really is Daria, then I suggest you look at http://www.allmusic.com . There are a few Daria's (one by Cake).

C ya!

The 80s song "Oh Sheila" by Ready For The World.

Whenever this was playing on the radio in the schoolbus, everyone would look at me and I'd be all .

Like I always say what's good for the gaze
Is always good for the camera
oh Sheila, oh, oh

2-Oh baby love me right
Let me love you till I get it right, hmm
Can't you let the others be
'Cause with you is where I got to be

Oh, sugar where you been
Hangin' out with your male friends
Listen, somebody's going to hurt you
The way you love, to keep hurting me, we say

1-Oh oh Sheila let me love you
Till the morning comes
Oh oh Sheila you know I want
To be the only one

3-Oh baby, understand that I want
To be the only man

But it seems you're screaming too hard
Now think yourself to have an only friend
Oh baby, it's plain to see
That you're qualified to fill my needs

4-I think you threw an oath on me
Honey, baby, just you wait and see

And we say
(repeat 1)

Oh baby, it's 1-2-3
I love you baby honestly, hmm, I want to
Di a di da li a di a di da li

Oh, oh Sheila...

How is your name pronounced? Is it like "Mar-tyne"?

Well...if your name is pronounced like Mar-tin, then there's TONS of songs! Or look up Marty at allmusic. Randy Newman wrote 3 songs about Marty!

Yeah, well... My actual name is Martijn (you kinda pronounce the end like you pronounce wine or so (or like in Anton Corbijn )), so if I want to look for a song named after me, I want to look for one named exactly like my name. But I guess I have to see if there's a Dutch site with this function. Oh well, you can't have it all...

C ya!

Marty

P.S. Randy Newman

I'm a little late for this, but I don't think my real name has ever made it into a song. My screen name, however, is on Freaky Styley by the RHCP (I had no idea it was Dr. Seuss until I found the book in Borders one day).

Yes, I know. It's about Paul's big ole sheepdog that he had. He named it Martha.
ditto. I always thought it was about the sheepdog, too.

Here's another one for us, martha--and it's a beautiful song. You MUST run out and buy the CD right away. The whole CD is a masterpiece beginning to end, but our song makes it extra sweet. My college boyfriend says he will be haunted by the song for the rest of his life.

Martha by Tom Waits (from Closing Time)

Operator, number, please:
it's been so many years
Will she remember my old voice
while I fight the tears?
Hello, hello there, is this Martha?
this is old Tom Frost,
And I am calling long distance,
don't worry 'bout the cost.
'Cause it's been forty years or more,
now Martha please recall,
Meet me out for coffee,
where we'll talk about it all.

And those were the days of roses,
poetry and prose and Martha
all I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows,
we'd packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.

And I feel so much older now,
and you're much older too,
How's your husband?
and how's the kids?
you know that I got married too?
Lucky that you found someone
to make you feel secure,
'Cause we were all so young and foolish,
now we are mature.

And those were the days of roses,
poetry and prose and Martha
all I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows,
we'd packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.

And I was always so impulsive,
I guess that I still am,
And all that really mattered then
was that I was a man.
I guess that our being together
was never meant to be.
And Martha, Martha,
I love you can't you see?

And those were the days of roses,
poetry and prose and Martha
all I had was you and all you had was me.
There was no tomorrows,
we'd packed away our sorrows
And we saved them for a rainy day.

And I remember quiet evenings
trembling close to you...

Hehe. Just found another song with my name in it...The Smiths' "Sheila Take A Bow"

Is it wrong to want to live on your own ?
No, it's not wrong-but I must know
How can someone so young
Sing words so sad?
Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
Boot the grime of this world in in the crotch, dear
And don't go home tonight
Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you
Is it wrong not to always be glad
No, it's not wrong-but I must add
How can someone so young
Sing words so sad?
Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
Boot the grime of this world in the crotch,dear
And don't go home tonight
Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you
Take my hand and off we stride
You're a girl and I'm a boy
Take my hand and off we stride
I'm a girl and you're a boy
Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
Throw your homework on to the fire
Come out and find the one that you love
Come out and find the one that you love
