"Goodnight Girl" is the third single from Wet Wet Wet's fourth studio album, High on the Happy Side. It was released on 23 December 1991, and was the second of the band's three UK number-one singles (the first being a cover of The Beatles' "With a Little Help from My Friends"), but the only one to be self-penned. A lush, string-laden ballad, it spent four weeks at number one in the UK Singles Chart in January 1992.

"Goodnight Girl" also gave Wet Wet Wet their third Irish number-one single (after "With a Little Help from My Friends" and "Sweet Surrender"). Marti Pellow recorded his own version of the song for inclusion on his 2002 album Marti Pellow Sings the Hits of Wet Wet Wet & Smile. Writer Graeme Clark was inspired to write the song for his then girlfriend, but has never publicly named her.
