This is one of those Paul tracks I really should hate for a number of reasons but against all reasoning I adore. The main vocal should be an instant turn-off yet holds some weird innocent charm (he’s basically blackmailing the woman he’s cheating with afterall) and I love how Paul changes to a more hardline approach when he sings the bridge.

Obviously written for Michael Jackson but I’ve never listened to his version. Don’t want to either.

I prefer MJ’s version, actually – the word “girlfriend” itself sounds less precious coming from the throat of a 19-year old than a man of 36.

I listened to Michael and Paul’s versions back to back. I do prefer Michael’s version, even though I’m not a huge fan of him.
