Today’s music video of the day is for My Girl, the third single to be released off of Madness’s debut album, One Step Beyond… This song spent 10 weeks on the UK singles chart, peaking in the third spot. The song was written by Mike Barson, Madness’s keyboardist. Barson has said that the song was somewhat autobiographical and about a man who would rather stay home and watch TV rather than go out or have long conversations with his girlfriend. Barson reportedly wrote the lyrics on the back of a cigarette packet while working as a delivery driver.
This video was shot at the Dublin Castle in Camden, London.
