Να συνδράμω στη λίστα (καθ'ότι fan των λιστών) με το Cecilia Ann, επίσης από Pixies (1990), το αριστουργηματικό Christine - Siouxsie & the Banshees (1980)και του Nick Cave το Christina The Astonishing.
Μου ρχονται στο μυαλό επίσης τα Amanda των Boston (1986 νομίζω), Cindy, Oh Cindy από Eddie Fisher (195?)
