Last week, with a girlish €25 Golden Discs voucher offer, I asked you to name favourite song featuring a female name in the title?

You answered in your dozens (helping create an impressive female name song playlist).

But there could be only one winner.

Third Place:

Visions Of Johanna by Bob Dylan

The most chilling, lyrically beautiful song ever…

Second Place:

For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her by Simon & Garfunkel

Millie Von Strumpet writes:

It’s pure poetry and Art Garfunkel’s voice is just beautiful.

Winner:

Candy Says by Velvet Underground

Ouch writes:

    Apparently, everybody in the backroom spoke very fondly of her. Always maintained a calm demeanour even in the most intimate of circumstances, so they say.

    They recorded it after all their amplifiers were stolen (After White Light/ White Heat). So it it was a lot more subdued. Interesting…
