Rick Springfield ‘Jessies Girl’ (1981)

With feeling, sing along;

“You know, I feel so dirty when they start talking cute,
I wanna tell that I love her but the point is probably moot”

(It probably sounded like a good idea at the time….)

A fantastic powerpop tune from a guy who I thought was a bit like Bruce Springsteen in 1984. I was wrong, of course, but I was a mere slip of a lad back then, and I thought all Springsteen had done was ‘Born in the USA’. I soon found out different.
