I wanted to create a poll that used spoilers, so as not to influence what your first answer might be.
So answer the question honestly, then seek out your answer in the poll and vote for it.

You could also think of the question in this manner: What did you think you would see (or what did you want to add if it wasn't there) when you decided to click on this LOLA thread?

Poll
When you see the name Lola, what is the first thing that comes to mind?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The song Lola, by the Kinks
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The song Copacabana, by Barry Manilow
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The movie Lola, written/ directed by Jacques Demy (1961)
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The movie Lola, directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1981)
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The restaurant, Lola Bistro; Celebrity chef Michael Symon's Cleveland hotspot
Spoiler (click to reveal)
A person: I, or some I know very well, share the name Lola
Something else entirely (comment below)

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

My neighbors have a daughter named Lola. But I still thought of the Kinks song first.

I thought about the Weird Al 'Yoda' parody of the Kinks song.

Run, Lola, Run is a close second to the Kinks' song.

I love it that Barry Manilow got a couple of folks.

I figured the results would go the way they are going, but there are some interesting other choices showing up.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

I first associate the name with the Kinks song, but almost immediately then flash to a friend of my parents when I was young, kind of an aunt to me.

Yup. The entire reason this thought even came to me was because cousins-in-law just had a kid and they named her Lola.
La-lo-lo-la-Lola.
My daughter (24 y.o.) immediately thought Copacabana.

This was the first thing I thought of too. Maybe because I was just saying to the wife last night that I wanted to watch that move again sometime.

(and on a side note, Run, Lola, Run is the only movie I've ever intentionally watched with dubbing instead of sub-titles. I started with the sub-titles, but there was just too much action that I was missing - and really not that much important dialog - so I switched it to dubbed English)

When I was a kid we used to be able to buy these frozen ice things in various flavors, about the size of a softball but shaped like a double pyramid. I loved them, they were called lolas, and that's what I think of when I hear that word.

Does anybody else remember these? Nobody from outside Toronto seems to know what I'm talking about.

Actually it isn't an asian woman obsession. It is more of a culture obsession...
