Oh Marie! (Songs about Marie)

I have noticed I have two songs on my iPod that invoke the name of Marie, and I just heard another one! It appears that my name inspires the songwriting muse. I was able to find all of them on youtube. Take a look. (If you subscribe by e-mail, visit the blog.)

Marie's the Name of His Latest Flame (Elvis)

Oh Marie (by Sheryl Crow):

Marie (by a very young Randy Newman):

Oh Marie (by Louis Prima):

Marie (by Tommy Dorsey):

Absolutely Sweet Marie (by Bob Dylan):

Marie (by Johnny Halladay, a French singer)--this looks like a tragedy and is definitely the type of music Mike likes!:

Know of any others? Which is your favorite?


  1. Pretty good posting. I like to visit your blog post. Thanks :)

  2. Thanks--glad you enjoyed it.

  3. There are two more songs, also: "Marie, the Dawn Is Breaking", and a song by Danny Kaye "Don't Tickle Me" (tickle the baby, tickle Marie) are some of the words. My name is Marie, too!

  4. One more : Aphrodite's Child - Marie Jolie
