Isn't it the coolest thing when your name is in a song? When I was younger, my mom would play Carly Simon's "Jesse" and I still know the words to this day. Why? Because even though the song is about a bad boy ex, I've always related to that song because she was obviously singing my name. I've loved that song since I was a kid and I can't help but grin when I hear it on the radio.
Then of course, there's Rick Springfield's "Jessie's Girl." Yes, this song is referring to a dude as well. But in high school, someone on the newspaper staff I worked on started singing the chorus to me whenever I would walk into the room and it just caught on. Besides, it's an awesome song, and a badass video. I can't complain!
Sure, if my name was Jessica, I'd have a few more, probably more appropriate song options, but these two songs have really meant a lot to me over the years.
Do you have any cool songs that you share a name with?
