Songs with a Girls' Name in the Title #34

34. Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl) – Looking Glass

I told you Brandy would be making an appearance. This song about sailor who cannot draw himself away from the sea to be with the woman he loves is another example of a song that was originally released as B-side. Supposedly a disc jockey in Washington DC first played the flip side and soon the rest of the country followed suit. The band that performed it, Looking Glass, broke up about two years after Brandy was released but the song remains a classic.
