Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield [HQ]
Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield Lyrics: Jessie is a friend, yeah, I know he's been a good friend of mine But lately something's changed that ain't hard to define Jessie's got himself a girl and I want to make her mine And she's watching him with those eyes And she's lovin' him with that body, I just know it Yeah 'n' he's holding her in his arms late, late at night CHORUS: You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl I wish that I had Jessie's girl Where can I find a woman like that I play along with the charade, there doesn't seem to be a reason to change You know, I feel so dirty when they start talking cute I wanna tell her that I love her, but the point is rather moot 'Cos she's watching him with those eyes And she's lovin' him with that body, I just know it And he's holding her in his arms late, late at night CHORUS Like Jessie's girl, I wish that I had Jessie's girl Where can I find a woman Where can I find a woman like that And I'm lookin' in the mirror all the time, wondering what she don't see in me I've been funny, I've been cool with the lines Ain't that the way love supposed to be Tell me, where can I find a woman like that (Solo) You know, I wish that I had Jessie's girl, I wish that I had Jessie's girl I want Jessie's girl, where can I find a woman like that, like Jessie's girl, I wish that I had Jessie's girl, I want, I want Jessie's girl

Full HD version of Rick Springfield Jessie's Girl. New Years Eve 2010/2011. On the original broadcast the audio was out of sync with the video because the feed from the street delayed the video portion from the audio reaching the control room. They should have fixed that live...but I fixed it here. As you can see once you line it up he was not lip syncing.

The Coverups (Green Day) - Jessie's Girl (Rick Springfield cover) – Live in San Francisco
The Coverups (Green Day) - Jessie's Girl (Rick Springfield cover) – San Francisco, Live, 3-8-18, front row, Thee Parkside. Secret Show! Billie Joe: “Is Tré Cool around anymore? Or was he like ‘fu*k this, this is hot!’?” :P Other Tidbits: “Our first overseas show!” The band joked.. The previous 3 Coverups shows were held in Albany at the Ivy Room. Thee Parkside is a bar and music venue which has a capacity of only ~100 people, about half of the capacity of the Ivy Room. The ad flyer for the show featured a picture of Molly Ringwald smoking in the movie The Breakfast Club, and in honor of that, Thee Parkside played the movie on their TV sets above the bar during the show, which Billie Joe pointed out during the concert was pretty cool. There were many friends and family in attendance and it was essentially a private show, but it was also open to fans that were able to figure out the clues the band left on their social media pages. Admission was only $13, and with it, we also got a raffle ticket. Many joke prizes were raffled off, including such items as a toy helicopter, Mike’s American flag jacket, KISS vinyl records, an American flag ukulele, and a double-neck guitar, lol. The Coverups, Billie Joe, Mike Dirnt, Jason White, Bill Schneider, Lee Bothwick and Chris Dugan, all hung out after the show, talking with the fans and taking pictures. Tré Cool joined the band for ‘Sheena Is a Punk Rocker’, ‘A Quick One’, and for ‘Astro Zombies’, Sara (who just had her birthday a couple days ago) sang lead vocals sang lead vocals with her husband Tré on the drums. Unlike at the shows in Albany, there was a huge mosh pit in the center operating almost continuously throughout the concert. It also got very hot as well and the band joked that the stage was turning into a sauna, lol. Billie Joe: “Is Tré Cool around anymore? Or was he like ‘fu*k this, this is hot!’?” :P Many of the fans recognized each other from previous Green Day and Coverups concerts. However, because the Thee Parkside could only allow in fans 21 years old and over, some fans could not make it. Billie Joe (after 2 unclaimed raffle prizes were drawn): OK, I’ve got an idea… Guess what number I’m thinking of in my head… That’s right! (throwing the helicopter into the crowd) lol Mike Dirnt: ‘Hella’ copter… East Bay lingo there… We came to the show and gave away ‘Hella’ copters… lol “I didn’t play in that band…” (Mike jokingly replying to a fan who asked him to autograph the KISS album he won in the raffle, lol) Billie Joe (to a front row fan): "What are you doing? You're taking pictures?... You know that's like the worst angle, ever, right?" The fan then proceeded to hold her camera way above her head (to get a better shot from a downward instead of an upward angle), to which Billie then posed for it. “There you go!” lol Green Day members to play ‘secret show’ at San Francisco dive bar tonight https://www.sfgate.com/entertainment/article/Green-Day-members-to-play-secret-show-at-San-12739004.php Setlist: 1.

Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield {HD}
"Jessie's Girl" is a song written and performed by Australian singer Rick Springfield. It was released on the album Working Class Dog. The song is about unrequited love, and centers on a young man in love with his best friend's girlfriend. Upon its release in the United States in 1981, the song was slow to break out. It debuted on Billboard's Hot 100 chart on 28 March but took 19 weeks to hit No. 1 reaching that position on 1 August, one of the slowest climbs to number one at that time. It remained at No. 1 for two weeks and would be Springfield's only No. 1 hit. The song was at No. 1 when MTV launched on 1 August 1981. Billboard ranked it as the No. 5 song for all of 1981. The song also peaked at No. 1 in Springfield's native Australia and later won Springfield a Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. The song was released in the United Kingdom in March 1984 and peaked at number 43 on the UK Singles Chart in April 1984. Springfield recorded an acoustic version of the song for his 1999 album, Karma. Springfield was taking a stained glass class along with his friend Gary and Gary's girlfriend. He initially wanted to use the actual name of the friend he was singing about, but instead decided to go with a different name — "Jessie". He was wearing a T-shirt with the name of football player Ron Jessie on it and changed the name from Gary to Jessie, then recorded the song. Springfield says that he does not remember the name of the girlfriend, and believes that the real woman who inspired the song has no idea that she was "Jessie's Girl", telling Oprah Winfrey, "I was never really introduced to her. It was always just, like, panting from afar." Springfield told Songfacts that Oprah's people tried to find her, and they got as far back as finding out that the teacher of the class had died two years previously and that his class records were thrown out one year after his death. In 2006, it was named No. 20 on VH1's "100 Greatest Songs of the 80s". Who is Jessie's girl? We may never know, but in our interview with Rick Springfield, he told us the story. Said Rick: "I don't know her name. It was a brief relationship I had when I was making stained glass for a while. I was going to a stained glass class in Pasadena, and I met this guy and his girlfriend. I was completely turned on to his girlfriend, but she was just not interested. So I had a lot of sexual angst, and I went home and wrote a song about it. Then about 4 months later I stopped going to the class and lost contact with them. The only thing I remember is his name was Gary, so I changed the name, because 'Gary' didn't sing very well. But the whole thing is absolutely what I was feeling. He was getting it and I wasn't, and it was really tearing me up. And sexual angst is an amazing motivator to write a song. Actually, Oprah's people tried to find her, and they got as far back as finding the stained glass guy. I couldn't remember his name, but I said it was late '70s; they found him, and he had died 2 years earlier, and they'd thrown all his papers out a year after that. So we missed finding out who she was by a year." This was Springfield's second Top 20 hit (the first being "Speak To The Sky" in 1971) and it was his only #1, where it stayed for two weeks in August 1981. The popularity of the song and album that summer was bolstered by the fact that Springfield, also an actor, had landed the role of Dr. Noah Drake on the soap opera General Hospital earlier that spring. Springfield began acting in the mid-'70s when his music career had stalled and his then-girlfriend, actress Linda Blair, suggested he try it. Speaking of Linda Blair, when Springfield and Blair were dating, Blair was just 15 years old while Springfield was 25. They only lived together for one year, and according to an interview on VH1's Behind the Music, Blair said, "He's someone I'll always love" while Springfield says that of all his former girlfriends, Blair is the only one he remains friends with. Remember that this was 1974, when standards were a little more relaxed, and median age of consent for most of Springfield's native country of Australia is 16. Spingfield's take on relationships: "We’re clueless. Desperately clueless. Everybody is on relationships. Truly, I remember being a jerk because I thought that’s what girls wanted. You only really learn about women when you get into a long relationship, unless you got a really great dad – a really clued-in father – or a really open mom." This was the #1 song in the United States when MTV launched on August 1, 1981. The video became a favorite on the fledgling network, as the photogenic Springfield starred in a well-produced promo where he used his acting skills to portray his angst.
