Girls! Girls! Girls!- “Mary Anne”- Marshall Crenshaw. The other day I was in a Barnes and Noble and was surprised to hear Marshall Crenshaw’s “Mary Anne” playing on the store intercom. “Mary Anne” is from his fabulous self-titled debut album- one of my favorite and most played albums from the early 70’s.

Crenshaw would later say that the song wasn’t written with anyone in mind- that Mary Anne fit and sounded like a musical sounding name. The song would become a favorite concert song but was never released as a single- Marshall Crenshaw says of the song- “At the time I had a friend who’s girlfriend married another friend of mine. This was like 1979, 1980. In my head I was consoling that person. But the lyrics aren’t specific, they’re just kind of general. Sometimes you just have to laugh at life, laugh at your misery to keep yourself sane, etc. That’s the only way you can go forward sometimes. I remember at the time I was trying to be very minimalistic with lyrics.”
