Episode # 1831 

8/4        Roses, Babes, and Gals—Most songwriters are men so most songs are about women—by name or nickname or term of affection. The terms of affection become honorifics in popular songs. A single word to express affection, desire, and happiness. A quick mention of baby or the girl you love named Rose, and the song is underway. For something as quick and brief a song lyric, a label does the trick.
