Rick Springfield - Jessie's Girl

Rick Springfield's 1981 hit "Jessie's Girl" is a perfect slice of American AOR rock in the tradition of bands like Journey and Boston - and Springfield is Australian. No matter his nationality, this song about one of adolescence's most common themes - being madly in love with your friend's girlfriend - is absolutely brilliant. Hopelessly dated in many ways, but still as cool as ever, "Jessie's Girl" is so catchy it almost hurts. "You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute/I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot". A classic!

Watch and listen
