Josephine (Pick Word #21)


Josephine is a female given name, which is the feminine form of the male name Joseph from the Holy Bible. It is also known as the English version of the French name. Josephine was the name of Napoleon Bonaparte and other princesses or queens in Europe. I found myself wondering about this name after listening to Magnolia Electric Co's last album Josephine (2009), after it was announced that the leading singer of that group Jason Molina has died. So here are five beautiful songs I've found about that name by: Reamonn, The Wallflowers, The Magnetic Fields, Josh Woodward and Magnolia Electric Co. of course....


The Wallflowers - Josephine (Taken From Bringing Down The Horse, 1996)

 
The Magnetic Fields - Josephine (Taken From Distant Plastic Trees, 1991)
 
Magnolia Electric Co. - Josephine (Taken From Josephine, 2009)
 
Reamonn - Josephine (Taken From Tuesday, 2000)
Josh Woodward - I'll Be Right Behind You, Josephine (Taken From Only Whispering, 2006)
