Did you know there was a real woman who probably inspired "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)"?
Wikipedia claims that Mary Ellis was ditched by a sea captain, and every day she rode to the sea to wait for him (sound a little like Japan's beloved Hachiko, but hell, he was a DOG).
Check out that photo. Her grave is right next to a movie-theater parking lot? New Jerseyites, do you know about this? Leave a rose for the real Brandy the next time you're checking out the latest "Saw" flick.
