Does anyone know why in a lot of their songs (not so much recently) but they always refer to a girl named Mary or Maria
Is this the same girl and what is the reasoning behind it?

Thanks

i'd say it's probably the springsteen influence. and that's not an answer i'd give lightly.

Maria is the name he uses for "any girl and every girl"

Mary was his grandmother.

The Blues, Mary and High Lonesome just to name two. Probably many more.

Lol I have that along with Italian Lightning, Tin Pan Alley, and a whole live Brian solo set from pre T59s at The Court Tavern. I think he just posted them on his MySpace back then. I only got into them after T59S though, ripped them off of youtube.

You guys are slipping

"Call every girl we ever met Maria"

From Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts

Brian said before American Slang came out he was going to "retire" Maria though.
