Girlfriend
(McCartney)
From: "London Town" (1978)

A very beautiful song. The middle part, I called it "Solo/Instrumental" here, 
seems somehow out of place, though. As I see it, McCartney wanted just a 
little  t o o  much here. Michael Jackson covered the song on his "Off the Wall" 
album (nice version, too!), turned the arrangement 100% pop and consequently 
left out this part. I usually do so, too.
