The Girl is Mine
Highest Billboard Position:
#2 in 1982
How is a former Beatle on this list twice? McCartney returns again in duet fashion with the bizarre Jackson (though in 1982 we only had an inkling of how strange the gloved one really was). The song features the two legends “arguing” over a girl and her affection. Considering the song has a really wimpy feel to it, it doesn’t appear that the two are really fighting that hard over the girl in question. The most perplexing question is just what possible woman could these two be fighting over?
Paul McCartney was one of the few rock stars on the planet who never got the memo that he was supposed to be with hot women (with all due respect to Linda McCartney, but let’s face it she wasn’t exactly a centerfold) and Jackson who well “allegedly” likes his women of the other gender and considerably younger. The most comical portion is the spoken debate portion of the song where Jackson tells his musical partner, “Paul, I think I told you, I’m a lover not a fighter”. I think we can close this article on that statement, don’t you?
