"Message to My Girl" is a 1983 song by New Zealand art rock group Split Enz from their second last studio album Conflicting Emotions. It was written by Neil Finn and released as a single in 1984, peaking at #6 in Australia[1], #28 in New Zealand[2] and #13 in the Netherlands, where it was Split Enz' biggest hit.[3]

The song was performed by Neil Finn both originally, and in 1995 when Split Enz member Eddie Rayner collaborated with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra for the project ENZSO, "Message to My Girl" was included and performed by Finn again. The re-recording was converted into more of a ballad version than the original.

During the 2006 Split Enz tour, Neil dedicated the song to his wife Sharon.
