Songs about Jane....

Some friends in college once made a mix tape for me of "Jane" songs. I wish this had been out when I was in college.....but I think it's lovely.

Got any other Jane songs I may not have heard?

tht is a very lovely song indeed. i don't know of any other jane songs. if you know of any michelle songs that don't involve the beatles i'd be happy to know....i truly loathe that song.

My favorite Jane song is the Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane." Nick Drake has a beautiful tune called "Hazy Jane II," and the Scottish pop band Belle and Sebastian have a lovely tune called "Lazy Line Painter Jane," which contains this fabulous lyric:

"Boo to the business world! / You know a girl who's tax free on her back and making plenty cash / While you are working for the joy of giving."

aw, crap...and here I was really trying to hate Jason Mraz.

This song is really sweet, are you.

Cowboy Junkies did a cover of Sweet Jane that I like a lot.

lime - I'm trying to find a Michelle song....haven't found one yet. I recommend befriending a talented musician and browbeating him into penning a tune.

captain- I love Sweet Jane!!! And I went and found/listened to Hazy Jane and Lazy Line. Thanks!

mintz-gotta love him, and gotta love me too!

tim - will go and listen to the junkies version -- thanks for letting me know.

kien-I had never heard this version, and it makes me like J.Mraz even more.

Let's sing a song
For Hazey Jane
She's back again in my mind.
If songs were lines
In a conversation
The situation would be fine.
