    'Girl' was actually the first T song I ever heard – they were playing new releases in my local record store. I agree this is one of the very few tracks that show a real Kate Bush influence ('Take Me With You' is another.)
    As for the male backing vocal, seeing Caton and Eric did BVs on 'Precious Things' and 'Little Earthquakes', I'm guessing it was Caton. Maybe Tori will solve the mystery for us…

      i agree, it was either Steve or Eric!! and yes, the Kate Bush influence is heavy but i really think that’s what everyone was doing at that point in time. it feels very late 80s in such a delicious way!

    The background voice in Kate's Hounds of Love is Paddy Bush, her brother. Maybe the background voice in Girl is Neil. Wouldn't that be cool?

      that would be so cool!!!! my guess is it’s Eric Rosse or Steve Caton!

    “Girl“ was my first favorite Tori song.
    I didn’t hear it until 2015 – I asked for it before the Denmark castle show – trying to sell her on the “castles are burning in my heart“ connection, and she said “oh honey, you’ll hear it so much this summer, you’ll grow tired of it!“. Fat chance 😉
    Loved Danica’s story and your line by line interpretations on this one.
    P.S. Team Noun, just as in CaLS.
