        Jackie Wilson Said - Dexy's Midnight Runners.

        I used to think that Jackie Wilson (if that what the song is named after) was a woman for many years just like a lot of Motown regulars, hence the spelling of his name, but he is a man, hence his inclusion on here.

            Nikita is a unisex name but in Eastern Europe/Russia it's usually given to males. To our ears, it does sound feminine though.

                    That is a man's name - I am surprised that the BBC didn't do a "Frankie Goes to Hollywood" over that song title as it is also refers to something associated with men as well...

                    Interesting how we think of song titles that have just a person's name and nothing else.

                        Have we done Johnny Remember Me by John Leyton? - I assume that Leyton is also the "Johnny" referred to in the song.

                              Not quite, but a lot of late 1980s songs with the name "Jack" in them, such as "Jack Your Body" and "I'd Rather Jack".
