In Baby Driver, one of my favorite scenes of the movie revolves around songs with names in them. Debora says she only knows one song with her name in it, Beck’s Debra, which she sings very badly but endearingly. she then asks Baby what his name is, and when he replies ‘Baby’ she says “you have us all beat, every damn song is about you!”
it made me realize that aside from Woody Harrelson’s Kelly song from an episode of Cheers, I don’t know any songs with Kelly in them. so I turned to Google to see what is out there. the first one I came across was an oldie by Del Shannon. this Kelly is sneaking around with her boyfriend’s best friend.
then I clicked on Kelly by Van She, which I actually really like, but these Kellys are all very hands on with their boyfriends (I’m assuming they’re boyfriends…)
there was an electronica type number by Air called Kelly Watch the Stars, which is just the phrase ‘Kelly watch the stars’ said over and over, and really shouldn’t be as catchy as it is.
and then there is Insistor by Tapes n Tapes, which doesn’t have Kelly in the title but the song is about another Kelly who cheats.
hmm. maybe being compared to a zeb-ra isn’t as bad as it seems.
