I'm left to wonder, why are there so many songs about Carolines? I mean, it's not that common of a name, is it? I know one Caroline. No, wait, two. Maybe three if you count an ex-girlfriend of a friend that I'm not even sure that I actually met.
But meanwhile, you've got Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline, Outkast's Roses (which, of course, include the lyrics, "Caroline... she's the reason for the word bitch,") and I just heard a song by Big Head Todd and the Monsters called Caroline. In fact, it may come as a surprise to learn that Yahoo radio has a list of 444 songs with "Caroline" in the title. (Well, some are repeats, but still, that's a lot, and that's not every song with Caroline in the lyrics.)
There are so many other lovely ladies' names, yet Carolines get all of the musical attention.
Why is that?
