You're so, so like a woman to me (The Hollies)
It seems a bit obvious when I now think about it now but I’d never realized The Hollies Carrie Anne song was about Marianne Faithful. Because Graham Nash was too shy he went with Carrie Anne.
The Rolling Stones ones are fairly easy to spot: Sister Morphine was partly written by her, Wild Horses, You Can’t Always Get What You Want, I Got The Blues and then there's Lennon’s And Your Bird Can Sing, a wry addition. But there must be loads more.
Anyway - here's The Hollies (without the shy Graham Nash) doing a ripper little version of Carrie Anne.
