A Girl Called Johnny is a catchy and addictive folk rock song. Saxophone really ties the song well together. And Mike Scott's always underrated and passionate vocal delivery is clever as ever. Fun old western piano bar melody. One of my favorite Waterboys' songs and their first single. Genuine good music.
