Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl) by the American band Looking Glass was written by lead guitarist and co-vocalist Elliot Lurie.
The lyrics tell of Brandy, a barmaid in a busy seaport harbor town which serves “a hundred ships a day.” Though lonely sailors flirt with her, she pines for one who has long since left her because he claimed his life, his love, and his lady, was “the sea.”
Following the song’s release in 1972, “Brandy” increased in popularity as a girl’s name in the United States.
