Music geeks, rejoice! Here's the ultimate list for you--a song with a girl's name in the title for each letter of the alphabet.

We dug up everything from custy Beach Boys songs to deep cuts by the Smashing Pumpkins (who, by the way, have an inordinate amount of songs titled with girls' names, oddly enough). Next time you win at music trivia night, just thank us.
