And, judging by the lyrics, her name didn’t suit her at all. The heroine of Suzanne by Leonard Cohen found that the song violated the framework of her personal life, and for Geraldine from the Geraldine group of Glasvegas, the song became one of the most touching acts that she had ever committed.

Here is a list of 12 people immortalized by music, whether they like it or not. Continue reading
