Suzanne (Pick Word #24)

Suzanne is a common female given name, which was popular, especially in the US in the 1950's and 1960's. It was listed among the 200 popular given names in the US from 1930-1980. The origin of the name might come from the Hebrew name Shoshannah which means lily in English. Anyway, most of us heard Leonard Cohen's famous song about a girl named Suzanne, but I managed to find four more songs by Lou Reed, Hope Sandoval And The Warm Inventions, John Mellencamp and Anna Calvi, who dedicated their songs to this beautiful name.

Anna Calvi - Suzanne And I (Taken From Anna Calvi, 2011)

Lou Reed - I Love You, Suzanne (Taken From New Sensations, 1984)
