What 60s song would make a girl unfortunate enough to be named "Jane" shudder?

Well, there was Plain Jane, whose dress didn't fit right, whose mouth was too wide and whose nose is too long.|
Wouldn't fill a Jane with pride methinks...
But she has the guy's attention, he likes her against his better judgment a la Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth, so I dunno...
P&P was written by a "Jane" though, so there's definite prejudice there...
Alas, it was written in 1959, so that's out...
Lady Jane works out pretty well for Janes everywhere:
So that's not it...
Didn't James Brown do "Tarzan's Got A Brand New Bag"?
That might rile some Janes...maybe I'm remembering that wrong..
Would any song performed by Jane Birkin qualify?
I mean, the asthma attack halfway through is a bit over the top...
So I vote for:
"Jane is a Groupee", Sly and the Family Stone, 1968.
"Jane is a groupee, ah, Jane makes whoopee, ah."
"She claps her hands without a doubt, she has no idea
what the song's about, she's too busy trying to figure
out, the shortest route to take the drummer home.."
Add that to Dan Akroyd's reproofs in the 70's,
The Bo Derek's Jane in the 80's,
The break-up of Jane's Addiction in the 90's,
The reuniting of Janes Addiction in the 00's,
and we find that's is been pretty much a shudderful 1/2 century for Janes!
Thank God for Jane Horrocks:
Shudder?? Crawl under a rock!|
Can you believe none of those are right? Well, they're ALL right, but the James Brown one comes the closest to the one I'm thinking of.
