    How about songs that have personal pronouns in the title! Such as I, Me, Mine, He, She, You, Him, Her, They, Them, It, Our, Ours, (Or any form of those) like Yours, You'll, You've, etc.

    Here's a Start:

    "She's So Fine" by Jimi Hendrix

    "You Are My Lucky Star" a song from the 1930's. Also sung by Debbie Reynolds in Singin' in the Rain.

    "You'll Never Walk Alone" From the 1945 musical, Carousel.

    Ya talked me into it, GB.

    You Are My Song of Love by Sigmund Romberg, based on Schubert's Unfinished

    You're the Cream in My Coffee. A hit for Ruth Etting back in the 20s.

    He and She from "The Boys From Syracuse" musical by Rodgers and Hart. The
    worst song they ever wrote IMHO.

    You're My Everything, written by Harry Warren. There seem to be a couple other
    songs with the same title.

    Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better by the old master of melody Irving Berlin.

    You'll Never Know.

    I've Got You Under My Skin.

    Under Your Spell Again. (Country Western.)

    I've Gotta Be Me from an obscure Broadway musical. The stars were Steve Lawrence
    and Eydie Gorme. Both tricky names to spell.

    OK, then. I'll Be Seeing You.

    Another great thread, GB. I'll add:

    He's So Fine, The Chiffons, 1963

    She's The One, Bruce Springsteen, 1975

    You and Me Against The World, Helen Reddy, 1974

    You're My World, Helen Reddy, 1977

    And the original version:
    "recorded in 1963 as "Il Mio Mondo" ("My World") by Umberto Bindi, who co-wrote the Italian version with Gino Paoli."

    Great songs posted, y'all!

    Oops, I almost forgot about some of my favorite Olivia Newton John songs! :)

    If You Love Me, Let Me Know, 1974

    If Not For You, 1971

    Let Me Be There, 1973

    I enjoy listening to her. I was still in junior high when I first heard her songs.

    Diane :)

    "I Honestly Love You", Olivia Newton John

    "Hopelessly Devoted to You", also Olivia

    "You Better Shape Up", ditto

    "You, You're Driving Me Crazy", recorded by Billie Holiday

    Diane, I had that same Olivia Newton John album. Loved her voice. GB

    This is a great category with lots of unmined gems.

    If You Love Me, Really Love Me aka L'Hymne a l'amour. I remember seeing
    Edith Piaf sing this on the Ed Sullivan Show when I was a kid. She always
    wore a shapeless black dress; her fee was always $1,000. (Well, at
    least that's the legend. She used to sing on street corners for pennies.)

    Remember Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent? Simon Cowell asked her who
    she would like to be as successful as. She said, Elaine Paige. You can
    see both Piaf and Elaine Paige as Edith Piaf on Youtube.

    I Got the Sun in the Morning and the moon at night.
    Our Love Affair.
    Yours is My Heart Alone.

    It Had to be You.
    They Didn't Believe Me.
    You'll Never Know how my poor heart is breaking.

    I'm My Own Grandpa.
    Bill, from Showboat. "You'd meet him on the street and never notice him."
    I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket. (Fred and Ginger danced to this one.)

    I notice we have several "heart" songs in this group too.

    Hi GB

    Nice list. I know all those songs except the last one. Was listening to Shutters
    and Boards on Youtube last night. It contains the line: If you'll open the
    shutters, I'll tear down the boards 'cause I drove every nail by myself.

    Saw lots of other country western songs listed that fit this category.

    Gone. This is a great country western song. Impossible to look it up on the net
    or Youtube (even though I listened to it last night on Youtube) because there
    are songs with the same or similar titles by such "artists" as Kanye West,
    Eminem, Kelly Clarkson, and Justine Timberlake. Uff-da!

    Still, Written and sung by Bill Anderson.
    El Passo, Day by Day, I Fall to Pieces.
    A Fool Such as I; Saginaw, Michigan.

    He'll Have to Go, I've Been Everywhere,
    I'm Moving on, Walking the Floor Over You.

    You Do Something to Me; a Cole Porter song recorded by
    lots of people including Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald,
    Marlene Dietrich and Old Blue Eyes.

    The Shadow of Your Smile.

    I'll Be Seeing You.

    I remember a song called "Since You've Gone" by Ferlin Husky, from the '50's. I'm going to look it up. Is that 'Shutters and Boards' really a song? That's so weird. I can't imagine what it means!

    I do remember 'A Fool Such As I', if it's the same one that I'm thinking about. I'll look it up too. (There was one by Elvis.) GB

    Hi GB

    No, you're right. Shutters and Boards is not really a song. It's actually a
    chapter in a pamphlet on "Building Your Own Log Cabin." Of course
    it's a song. And a very nice one too. The singer is thinking back to the
    happy home he and his Sweetheart once had. You can hear it by
    such great singers as Jerry Wallace (a hit for him), Charlie Pride, Teresa
    Brewer, Dean Martin and Slim Whitman.

    Even more surprising, the song was written by Audie Murphy (the war
    hero and actor) with musician Scott Turner. Murphy wrote or co-wrote
    a lot of songs. The most successful were this one and "When the Wind
    Blows in Chicago".

    The existential question is this: is the house real or is it a symbol of a
    romance that once flourished and is now empty and lifeless like an
    old, vacant house?

    Here are a couple others.

    "Now and Then there's a fool such as I." Only such song I know.
    (Note the excellent grammar in the title.)

    What Kind of Fool am I? From Stop the World; I Want to Get Off!

    Kiss me once and kiss me twice, and kiss me once again, It's Been
    a Long, Long time.

    Darktown Strutter's Ball; I'll be down to get you in a taxi, Honey.

    Sometimes when I can't sleep I think of dream jobs. Like to be a singer.
    Country, pop, opera, all of them. And a writer. And a cartoonist. And
    a song and dance man. And a cowboy. But only a movie cowboy; not a
    real one. :rolleyes:

    Adios, Pard

    A few more gems from this category.

    You do Something To Me.
    I Got You, Babe.
    Love's Been Good to Me.

    The World I used to Know.
    Can't We Try
    And Sometimes when we Kiss.

    The last two were big hits for Dan Hill who wrote the lyrics for the first
    one. Don't know about the second one. It was a duet with a back up
    singer named Vonda Shepard. Vonda later became a regular on the
    Ally McBeal show and made some recordings of her own.
