I just searched my entire mp3 collection and every result that came back was written by Darren Hayman. He's obsessed!

Elizabeth Duke (from The Secondary Modern)
Elizabeth Clarke (from The Violence)
and Betty Cutts (from Catfight by Hefner)

Somebody on the Anorak moderator team had their heart broken by a Liza. That's my theory.

None of these are indie pop songs, if that's what you're going for, but here's what I've got:

Elizabeth - Bubble Puppy
Dizzy Miss Lizzy - various (e.g. The Beatles)
Lizzy - Ben Kweller (he has some other songs with "Lizzy" in the lyrics, too)
Betty and Dupree - (various, e.g. Brownie McGhee, Peter, Paul and Mary)
Liza Jane - various (e.g. the Almanac Singers)

EDIT: Oh, the other main Ben Kweller song about Lizzy is called "Thirteen". (Lizzy is the name of his wife, who is also the namesake of my pet hedgehog, Lizzy)

I replied to the original (mysteriously deleted) thread with A Letter To Elise by The Cure.

I can't think of a title, but a good 'incorporating' is The Beach Boys 'Good Time' , which starts with the line, 'My girlfriend Betty, she's always ready to help me in any way'. Given that it was written during Brian Wilson's hard drugs and staying-in-bed period, I've always thought this probably involved hanging around on a lot of street corners, waiting for dodgy men that she could pick up the merchandise from (presumably, this led to the titular 'good time'). I feel a little sorry for Betty.

Edit - I thought of a proper one, 'Bessie Smith' by Bob Dylan and The Band - just The Band really, but it's on 'Basement Tapes'.

You could use a Betty And The Werewolves song if you get stuck.

Or the national anthem.

A Perfect Day Elise - PJ Harvey

and.. there's probably an early 70s pop-reggae interpretation of 'hole in my bucket' ("dear Liza") you could use.

'Hole In Jah Jah Bucket'?
