You're welcome. The band's principal songwriter, Elliot Lurie, told Bart Herbison about the high school girlfriend who inspired the song and sorted through the urban legends — both true and false — surrounding it. You were kind of the architect of the band Looking Glass, that had this hit in EL: Brandy is a made-up individual. Her name came up. Then I started writing the rest of the song, and it was about a barmaid. I I thought Randy was an unusual name for a girl, it could go either way, and the song was about a barmaid, so I changed it to Brandy.
How long did it take you to write it? Was it one sitting or did this sort of evolve? It just seems that the craft and every word is so meticulous in this story.

He never did and she is buried there. The song is about her, right? EL: Absolutely not. EL: Yeah, that is true. Facebook Twitter . The urban legends of 'Brandy You're a Fine Girl '.
