Radio XVI, side A, track 6: “My Girl” by Suave

Suave My GirlOh, Suave, normally I don’t do much in the way of reading about the artists before I post about a song, but I couldn’t find anything about you or this song right away, and when I tracked down the Wikipedia article about you I caught a glimpse of “arson” and “Biggie Smalls” and since it was a pretty short article, I decided to give it a quick read, and of course I wish I hadn’t, which is why I normally don’t do too much research on my beloved radio stars because I don’t want to know anything bad about them.  I want to believe they’re just there in my radio making beautiful music with nothing untoward going on behind the scenes, where life is just one big happy royalty check.  And to read about your life and juxtaposing it with this really smooth, well-done remake of an already great song just makes me sad.  I wanted to give you a little ribbing about how you changed the lyrics so that your name was in them (“I’ve got all the riches, baby, one suave man can claim”), but now it just seems like kicking a man when he’s already down, so never mind.  It’s a good lesson for me to let other people click on those links, better for thee and not for me and all that.  I’m just going to listen to this song again and pretend everything’s just fine.

“My Girl”

I’ve got sunshiiine

On a cloudy day

Oh, when it’s cold outsiiide

I’ve got the month of May

Ohhh, I guess
You’d say
What could make me feel this way
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin’ ’bout my girl
(My girl)

I’ve got sooo
Much honey, bees envy me

I’ve got a sweeter song

Than the birds in the trees

Ohhh, I guess
You’d say
What could make me feel this way
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin’ ’bout my girl
(My girl)

Ooooo hoooooooo

(My girl)

(Girl-girl-girl-girl-girl)

(My girl)

(Girl-girl-girl-girl-girl)

Ohhh, I guess
You’d say
What could make me feel this way
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin’ ’bout my girl
(My girl)

I don’t neeeed
No money,foooortune or fame

I’ve got all the riches, baby
One suave man can claim

Ohhh, I guess
You’d say
What could make me feel this way
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin’ ’bout my girl
(My girl)

Ooooooo hooooooo

<awesome Suave jam>

There’s somethin’ about my girl
My girl (girl-girl-girl-girl-girl)
(Yeah)
There’s somethin’ about my girl
My sunshine on a cloudy day
There’s somethin’ about my girl
There’s somethin’ about my giiirl
There’s somethin’ about my girl
Don’t need no money, fortune, or fame
There’s somethin’ about my girl
Got all the money Suave can claim
There’s somethin’ about my girl
Oh, when she holds me late at night
There’s somethin’ about my girl

One thought on “Radio XVI, side A, track 6: “My Girl” by Suave
