    Initially, I really wanted this list to be just a list of historical figures/celebrities/well-known people etc... but I don't think I mustered enough... so I had to pad it out a bit with some other names. I do think the list would be better if it avoided the 'one word' boys & girls names...

Barbra Streisand - Duck Sauce Mr Damage - The Angels Cold Ethyl - Alice Cooper Me Myself I - Joan Armatrading and finally a catchy little Aussie classic from the 60's that is NOT a personal favourite of mine Sadie the Cleaning Lady - Johnny Farnham
