Pippi Longstocking is probably not the quintessential example of sugar and spice, but she’s definitely full of spirit and pluck. Hopefully these songs cover all of those elements, and then some. I’m definitely not the first person to do a girl’s names mix, and there are a couple of old faves here, but hopefully there’s one or two that you haven’t come across before.

Angela – Missy Higgins She’s a danger you’re addicted to

April Anne – Okkervil River A cover, but naturally they make it their own

Come On Eileen (Live) – Dexy’s Midnight Runners Hello 1982

Gillian – The Waifs Gillian if you weren’t my mother I’d make you my wife… slightly creepy incestuous lyrics aside, this is a beautiful song

Karen – The National Doing what they do best

Lolita – Throw Me The Statue Things could multiply at appalling rates

Mary Won’t You Warm My Bed – Colin Blunstone Clear and to the point

Mean Marianne – Kelley Stolz Marianne is a popular girl

Naomi – Neutral Milk Hotel These guys can definitely pen a good tune

Natalia – Van Morrison Removed by request Another from the veteran Irishman

Selfish Jean – Travis Telling it like it is
