Brandy Clark Explains 'Girl Next Door'

(Radio.com) "The girl next door" is an American archetype. As the Urban Dictionary explains, she's shy, unassuming and nice: "Think of Renee Zellweger's character in Jerry Maguire."

Singer/songwriter Brandy Clark has written about this archetype in her new song, "Girl Next Door," based on the experience of one of her co-writers. "I wrote that with Jessie Jo Dillon and Shane McAnally, and that idea came from Jessie Jo. Jessie Jo is the epitome of cool; she's a little bit of a wild child, and she was dating this guy who loved that about her when he first met her, and then as time wore on, he wanted her to be a little bit more demure."

"And I said, 'Well, what do you think of that?' She's like, 'I wanna say, "Brother, you want the girl next door, go next door!"' And I said, 'Jessie, that's a song!'" Read more here.
