"Adrienne" is the second single from The Calling's debut album, Camino Palmero, which was released on July 10, 2001.

When Aaron Kamin and Alex Band wrote the song they both had girls in mind, but according to Band they changed the name in the song to Adrienne because, "We didn't want a lawsuit."[1]

Music video[edit]

In the music video The Calling is performing outside while a bunch of people are standing in line taking turns "singing" a duet with Alex Band. At the end of the video a girl goes up and she falls and everyone else in line fall like dominoes.
