"Jennifer Eccles" is a 1968 single by the Hollies. It was released with the B-side Open Up Your Eyes on the Parlophone label, Catalogue number R5680. The song reached #7 on the UK singles chart in March 1968. Around the same time, it was released in the US with a different B-side, "Try It", and reached #40 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Jennifer Eccles (who had "terrible freckles") also features in the song "Lily the Pink" by The Scaffold; the reference is an in-joke, as Graham Nash, who had by now left the Hollies, sang backing vocals on this recording; Nash had been married to Rose Eccles from 1964 until 1966.[2]
