Top 20 Songs about Maria

All of these songs are about characters named Maria. These are not songs about the same individual, but songs about many different types of women, who just happen to share the same name. This is my tribute to the different faces of Maria.

01. Blondie – Maria

Oooh don't you wanna' take her? / Wanna' make her all your own? / Maria / You've gotta see her / Go insane and out of your mind / Regina / Ave Maria / A million and one candle lights

02. The Sound of Music – How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?

When I'm with her I'm confused / Out of focus and bemused / And I never know exactly where I am / Unpredictable as weather / She's as flighty as a feather / She's a darling! / She's a demon! / She's a lamb! / She'd outpester any pest / Drive a hornet from its nest / She could throw a whirling dervish out of whirl / She is gentle! She is wild! / She's a riddle! She's a child! / She's a headache! / She's an angel! / She's a girl! / How do you solve a problem like Maria?

03. Manuel Mijares – Maria Bonita

Amores habrás tenido muchos amores/ Maria Bonita, María del alma; / pero ninguno tan bueno ni tan honrado / como el que hiciste que en mi brotara

04. West Side Story – Maria

The most beautiful sound I ever heard: Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . . / All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word . . Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .

05. Santana – Maria Maria

Se mira Maria on the corner / Thinking of ways to make it better / Then I looked up in the sky / Hoping of days of paradise





06. Ricky Martin – Maria

Un, dos, tres / Un pacito pa' delante, Maria, / Un, dos, tres / Un pacito pa' tras / Aunque me muera ahora, Maria, Maria, te tengo que besar / Ella es como un pecado mortal / Que te condena poco a poco / Ella es un espejismo sexual / Que te vuelve loco, loco

07. Mago de Oz – Cantar de la Luna Oscura

Apuestos galanes la cortejan / y aquellos que la han conseguido / con el paso del tiempo la dejan / y ella llorando escoge el olvido. / Es la inocencia perdida. / Es la vejez negada. / Y unas lágrimas perdidas / María vive desesperada.

08. Counting Crows – Round Here

Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand / She said she’d like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis / She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land /Just like she’s walking on a wire in the circus / She parks her car outside of my house / Takes her clothes off
Says she’s close to understanding Jesus / She knows she’s more than just a little misunderstood / She has trouble acting normal when she’s nervous

09. David Bisbal – Ave Maria

Ave María, cuando serás mía / Si me quisieras, todo te daría / Ave María, cuando serás mía / Al mismo cielo, yo te llevaría.

10. Brooks and Dunn – My Maria

My Maria don’t you know I’ve come a long, long way / I been longing to see her / When she’s around she takes my blues away / Sweet Maria the sunlight surely hurts my eyes / I’m a lonely dreamer on a highway in the skies

11. Café Tacuba – Maria

Sale sola de noche María, / pena por la ciudad, / recorriendo las calles que / un día negó besos en la oscuridad.

12. Men at Work – Maria

Maria was born in the country / She loved her homeland / Maria was from a poor family / For their girl they had greater plans

13. Kingston Trio – They Call the Wind Maria

Maria blows the stars around / And sends the clouds a’flyin’ / Maria makes the mountains sound / Like folks were up there dying / Maria / Maria / They call the wind Maria






14. Gipsy Kings – Bem Bem Maria

No te vallas / Muer mia / Tu no me dejas / Tu no te vallas / Igual que una chiquitana
No te vallas / Muer mia / Tu no me dejas / Tu no te vallas / Tu acerca a labandono
Bem bem bem Maria / Te quiero bem bem bem / Bem bem bem Maria

15. Green Day – Maria

Bring in the head of the government / The dog ate the document / Somebody shot the president / And no one knows where Maria went?

16. Ayumi Hamasaki – M

"Maria" There is someone I should love. / At times I feel very lonely. / But my needs are all filled / by the person I should love.

17. Mercedes Sosa – Maria, Maria

Maria, María / Es un don, es el sueño, el dolor / De una fuerza que nos alerta / Una mujer que merece vivir / Y amar como otra mujer del planeta

18. Alex Ubago – Maria





Maria te enseña que la vida / no es tan solo aquello que podemos ver / también las cosas que están escondidas / en cada uno / Maria puede quitarte el sueño / con un beso ya te puede convencer / y te hace parte de su universo / y para el mundo

19. Luis Enrique Mejia – Pobre la María





Frente al espejo que compro en el Oriental / Se pone su vestido y su collar / Talvez esta noche no le va tan mal /
Baja por Tiscapa hacia el Lobo Jack / Y en la madrugada, un día mas vieja / Regresa a su casa / Pobre la María

20. Scorpions- Ave Maria No Morro




Allá se escucha, al fin del día una plegaria / Ave Maria /
Allá se escucha, al fin del día una plegaria / Ave Maria / Ave Maria /
Aunque no tenga capilla, reza la gente sencilla / Ave Maria
