Caroline is a name that songwriters frequently like to use in a song – most famously the "Sweet Caroline
" Neil Diamond sang of. He actually wrote that number about his second wife, Marcia, but needed a three-syllable name to fit the melody. The name Caroline fit the tune perfectly, so that's what he used.
Other artists that titled a song after a girl named Caroline include The Beach Boys
, Status Quo
, Brandi Carlile
, Kaiser Chiefs
, Kellie Pickler
and Steve Martin
