This week, the 6th edition of the theme Guys and Dolls includes another twelve great songs titled with a person’s name. Paul Peterson refers to ‘Sandy’, Janis Joplin is with ‘Bobby McGee’ and Bobby Gentry remembers ‘Billie Joe’. The Australian contingent is singing about ‘Penelope’, ‘Magazine Madonna’ and ‘Timothy’ while Johnny Mathis, one of our LGBTI favourites, sings about ‘Maria’ from the musical Westside Story. Wings enjoy a road trip with ‘Helen Wheels’, Ram Jam rev up a great version of ‘Black Betty’ and Neil Sedaka is smiling now that he’s met ‘Sunny’. The Cufflinks are telling ‘Sally’ to run toward happiness while Dion is telling people to stay away from ‘Runaround Sue’.
