Jealous Girl

Mills-Weske, 1964.  Recorded: 14-05-64

Johnny Kidd (voc) - Mick Green (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums) - Vic Cooper (keyboards)

The last song by the band written (if only in part) by manager Gordon Mills, who was soon to experience greater success with Tom Jones. The stereo recording shows the best 'take' of this song in it's virginal state and demonstrates work that could be done to bring about the best recording possible within studio time constraints. The "best take" would probably be mixed down to mono first. The first middle eight with it's shuffling off-beat was cut out and a copy of the smoother second middle eight was inserted instead. As the recordings' end was weak, a special, short "edit piece" was recorded, consisting of just the song's final flourish; this would be edited on later. See "Recording Methods" for more information.

 
Hey Jealous Girl
Why do you want to cry
Why do you sit and sigh all day

Hey jealous girl
You know that I love you
So don't be sad and blue this way

     There's nothing wrong with you
     A little loving won't put right
     Then all I ask of you
     Is give - your love - to me
     Tonigh-igh-igh-ight

Hey jealous girl
Our love is plain to see
So won't you come on, smile for me

Hey jealous girl
You know that I love you
So don't be sad and blue
I love you, Jealous girl
I love you

(instrumental break)

     There's nothing wrong with you
     A little loving won't put right
     Then all I ask of you
     Is give - your love - to me
     Tonigh-igh-igh-ight

Hey jealous girl
You know that I love you
So don't be sad and blue
I love you, Jealous girl
I love you
