Joe Jackson

Joe Jackson (born David Ian Jackson, 11 August 1954) is an English musician and singer-songwriter now living in Berlin, whose five Grammy Award nominations span from 1979 to 2001. He is probably best known for the 1979 hit song and first single "Is She Really Going Out with Him?", which still gets extensive US FM radio airplay; for his 1982 hit, "Steppin' Out"; and for his 1984 success with "You Can't Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want)". He was popular for his pop/rock and New Wave music early on before moving to more eclectic, though less commercially successful, pop/jazz/classical hybrids. more »

Joe Jackson and Drew Barfield)
I could cool out
I could hang loose
I could lay my head back in this comfortable noose
I could watch the paint dry
On these rented walls
Or I could run wild with the first wild thing who calls

 Goin' downtown... goin' downtown
 Goin' downtown... to stand round and stare
 And put people down for not being there
 Goin' downtown... and I'll see you there

But I saw you laugh
At that girl having fun
To show some emotion... just isn't done
You can look but don't touch
That's as far as it goes
You're only as good as the cut of your clothes

There's gotta be more to life than this
