“Jessie’s Girl” Isn’t About A Girl

It’s about Jessie.

That girl’s eyes! Her body! And all this while she’s loving Jessie, not him! Rick is clearly obsessed, and the fervor of his lust is unsettling, yet at the same time strangely moving. The jealousy he feels towards his friend for scoring such a babe-licious girlfriend lends him a humanizing touch. But even more oddly endearing is Rick’s incredulity at the idea that this girl could possibly not be interested in him. After all, he’s Rick!

It doesn’t matter who Jessie’s girl is. It’s just that Jessie has a girl and I wanna make her mine.

Could be almost any girl.
