|Mike + The Mechanics singles chronology|
"Over My Shoulder" is a pop rock song by British supergroup Mike + The Mechanics. It was released on 13 February 1995 as the first single from their album Beggar on a Beach of Gold. Sung by Paul Carrack, it was the most successful single from that album, peaking at No.12 on UK Singles Chart. Although it failed to crack the UK Top 10, the song became perhaps the band's biggest radio hit. Co-lead vocalist Paul Young played rhythm guitar on the track.
The music video was shot primarily on the village green at Chiddingfold on the Weald in Waverley, Surrey, England. The parish church of St Mary's with its distinctive tower, as well as the village pub The Crown, also appear. It features Nick Pickard (Tony Hutchinson from the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks) as a love-struck teenage boarding school pupil and Tom Fletcher (from the pop-rock band McFly) as a little boy in a junior school classroom.
