Nowadays, it seems as if people are quick to raise their eyebrows when songs with women's names hit the airwaves. But even if it has become the biggest cliché in music, a song with a girl's name in the title never fails to capture our imagination.

Who was Michael Jackson referring to in "Billie Jean?"

Was Barry Manilow's "Mandy" inspired by a real person?

Why does Tom Jones sing "Delilah" with so much passion?

Such questions spring to mind whenever we hear songs that are probably inspired by the singer's or composer's real-life sweethearts. We can never say for sure, though, and that's precisely what makes them curious, engaging, and timeless.

Songs written for a specific girl can be seen across all genres of music, from pop and rock to hip hop and country. And while they often tell the story of first love, many songs also depict darker themes such as rejection, loneliness, and despair.

It's fascinating to sift through hundreds of songs with women's names in the title, and I've listed some of the best ones below for you to check out!
