hi

the song 'girl' would you say it's influenced by classical music ?
i definitely think there is sth of classical music in it but dont know which composer it looks like  :police:

Dcazz:
I hear some eastern Europe/Greece/ Gypsy/whatever was in their minds at the time influence with the mandolin style playing. I think it was a guitar capoed up high but I'm not sure about classical.

Kangaroo Kev:
The instrumental passage at the end has a Greek Zorba feel and sound, but I dont detect any particular classical style myself.

stevie:
Possibly.

The 'tit, tit, tit' backing vocals sound a bit Beethovenish... roll:) ;D

Hello Goodbye:
I think the minor key and eighth notes give Girl a bit of a classical feel.  It's always been one of my favorite songs and it's one of the first songs I learned on guitar.
