27 Songs With The Name Amy In The Lyrics Or Title

“Amy Never Misses” by A Small Victory

Song Year: 2006

A collection of colors, dark imagery, and references to injuries of all sorts, “Amy Never Misses” is a crunchy-guitar piece of power pop, but past that, who knows?

Who is Amy in this song, a ghost? A lost love? A dead friend? Why are they cutting themselves with knives outside? Who’s narrating? Why are they burning stuff? Nobody knows what Amy’s aiming at, but apparently, she’s a good shot.

“Once in Love with Amy” by Sammy Davis, Jr. and Buddy Rich

Song Year: 1966

Before Broadway legend Frank Loesser wrote “Guys and Dolls,” he wrote another pretty successful show in 1948 called “Where’s Charley.” It’s a farcical comedy that hasn’t had the same staying power as that other Loesser musical despite being a better show.

This version is an iconic performance by two jazz giants.

“Amazing Amy” by Lil Wayne

Song Year: 2015

Though it wasn’t part of the soundtrack of 2014’s “Gone Girl,” “Amazing Amy” certainly could have been. In the film, Amy’s mother made her bones writing children’s books about Amazing Amy. Amy grows up to be crazier than an outhouse mouse.

Lil Wayne raps about his dilemma: he loves a woman he finds debilitatingly sexy, but she’s crazy, and he fears she wants to kill him for his money.

“Amy's Back in Austin” by Little Texas

Song Year: 1994

“Amy’s Back in Austin” was a Top Ten hit for Little Texas in the ‘90s, pioneers of the Hot Young Country movement that they were. The song weaves the tale of a young couple leaving their Texas home to make a life for themselves.

But things go wrong, and the girl leaves. The chorus finds the narrator wondering where she is. He thinks back on what might have gone wrong to drive her away.

“Miami, My Amy” by Keith Whitley

“Miami, My Amy” by Keith Whitley

Song Year: 1985

Whitley equates Amy’s touch with an earthquake. The song was Whitley’s first country single— the first of only 12, as he died tragically in 1989.

The song tells of a man who meets Amy in Florida, falls in love, but then has to return to LA. She calls him later and confesses her love to him, and he high-tails it back to Florida.

“Has Anybody Seen Amy” by John & Audrey Wiggins

Song Year: 1994

“Has Anybody Seen Amy” is the rare song that imparts the you-can’t-go-home-again message without beating the listener over the head with it.

As the narrator looks around his old stomping grounds, he doesn’t wax nostalgic about how the record store used to be on that corner.

Instead, he merely looks for the woman he loved long ago. She’s not around, and that’s symbolic of what he lost when he grew up and moved on with his life.

“Airline Amy” by Weird Al Yankovic

Song Year: 1992

Not every Weird Al song is a parody of a song you already know. His original songs are uncommonly brilliant. Need convincing? Check out his ode to Frank Zappa, “Genius in France.”

“Airline Amy” isn’t an homage to another artist or a parody. It’s just a humorous song about a guy who falls for a cute flight attendant, forcing him to fly to all sorts of destinations he doesn't care to go to, but he wants to be close to her.

“Chasin’ Amy” by Steve Helms Band

Song Year: 2011

What is about first loves being named Amy? “Chasin’ Amy” comes from Texas-based Steve Helms and his eponymous band.

The narrator sings about how great life was back in the old days when new love was an unfamiliar feeling and how that one summer will never leave his memory.

“Amie” by Damien Rice

Song Year: 2002

A song about the constant nature of change, “Amie” refers to love, loss, and the end of a century. There’s evidence in the lyrics that Amie has died, but even if she hasn’t, it’s clear that she’s gone, and the narrator misses her.

He refers several times to The Story of O, a novel that caused a sensation in the 1950s. Is that a clue to the narrator's relationship with Amie? Or did they just enjoy the salacious novel together?

“Amy, Run For The Hills” by courtship.

Song Year: 2019

If you’ve ever been in a relationship that you knew was doomed to failure, then you’ve lived “Amy, Run for the Hills.” Though it’s got a definite song-of-the-summer vibe, it’s about the end of a couple’s time together, as both parties understand that this isn’t working out.
