“Take My Name” by Parmalee

If you presumed that this song by a male vocalist titled “take my name” is about marriage, then you are correct. The titular phrase sounds like something a man would tell a lady he wants to marry since, traditionally speaking, upon officially making such an agreement, the female adopts the male’s surname as her own.

And the intricacies of the featured narrator are such that, by implication, the vocalist is popping the question a bit early in his relationship with the addressee. But the reason he’s doing so is because he’s thoroughly convinced that this lady is the one – something he has recognized from first sight even.

What is further implied is that the vocalist is being advised by some friends of the relationship to exercise patience. But he ‘wants’ the addressee ‘in every single part of his world’, i.e. completely embedded into his life. The second verse is basically a reiteration of those ideas, as introduced in the first verse.

So as has also been deduced by other analysts, this track would actually fall into the category of proposal songs. In other words, “Take My Name” may not necessarily be something a guy would play directly for his girlfriend unless he too is thinking of marriage or perhaps even proposing to her in the process. Indeed, it wouldn’t be surprising if this song goes down in history as one of those that is regularly played at weddings or what have you.
