Seeing their is no Sonos Discord (or not one I am aware of) and the Sonos Reddit seems to be it’s own little thing, I thought I would try and add a little fun to the Forum here seeing everything is all issues, complaints, etc.. Can you name 5 songs (not previously mentioned) that have a woman’s name in it. It could be the title but it can also be within the song itself. Mine:

Amanda in Amanda by Boston

Mary Ann in More than a Feeling by Boston

Jamie in Jamie’s Got a Gun by Aerosmith

Beth in Beth by Kiss

Roxanne in Roxanne by The Police

All of these are easy ones, but can you name 5 more? Good Luck.
