Whirly Girl by Oxo (1983)

Whirly Girl by Oxo (1983)
"Whirly Girl" is a US top 40 pop song performed by American dance-rock band OXO. The new wave style song was written and co-produced by singer/guitarist Ish "Angel" Ledesma (former singer and guitarist of Foxy) and included on OXO's 1983 self-titled debut album. The song was about Ish's wife Lori and was originally titled "Worldly Girl", "but adding that 'd' to the mix made the chorus too chunky and difficult to sing. So they abbreviated it to 'Whirly Girl' and pop music history was made with the only song to ever use the phrase 'Whirly Girl'."It was the band's sole hit, peaking at number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1983. The song has since been re-released on a number of 1980s music compilations.
