(HQ digital stereo remaster) You know why this is here - this is the highest quality copy of this clip on YouTube - completely title and logo free. This was the first single from The Cars' 1987 album "Door to Door". Don't be tricked by other copies that seem to be title-free - the uploader has simply chopped 10 seconds out to remove them. That's called cheating and misses the end of the song.
"You Are the Girl" is a 1987 song by The Cars, from their album Door to Door. It was released as a single in August 1987, reaching number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached number 2 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and number 12 on the Adult Contemporary chart. It was The Cars' 13th and (as of 2016) last Top 40 hit.
Rhythm guitarist and principal songwriter Ric Ocasek shares lead vocals with bassist Benjamin Orr on "You Are the Girl". Both singers had recently cracked the Top 40 with solo hits, Ocasek with 1986's "Emotion in Motion" and Orr with 1987's "Stay the Night". "You Are the Girl" was The Cars' first - and last - Top 40 hit after their 1987 regrouping following the band members' three-year hiatus to focus on solo work. It also became the second (and last) single after "Since I Held You" from "Candy-O" in which both singers shared vocals on a song.
The lyrics for the song are about an ex; the music video, directed by cult filmmaker John Waters, has been described as "alien-populated"
