    Joe was born in my home town, but I don't think he had much love for the place.

    Jump'n Jive was a great album. Which is really out of my realm - not a guitar to be found on any of the tracks.

    I'm a Joe Jackson fan. I really love his material from the late 70's through the 80's. I saw him on the Big World tour at the Wembley Arena in London in 1986. Great band and amazing show.

    Sign me up.... great music!

    Back in the early 80's our set list had at least 5 Joe songs on it at any given time... my favorites (to play) were always "got the time", "one more time", "sunday papers", "beat crazy", and from Jumpin Jive... "5 Guys Named Moe"... which we did in a 3 piece punk(ish) format.

    A slow song ,from the live at Rockpalast show , early 80 . They played the whole show without the guitar player , who was sick . It was unbelievable . What a thrill !

    I was hoping this cut would show up. Joe's tall, isn't he? "Is she really going out with him?" Doubt there's any guy who hasn't lived through that song.

    Had to look up where - Burton Upon Trent. Probably not the place you'd think of when you see Joe doing his New York cool swinging jazz thing. Although he is missing out on some great beer by not returning to his roots :)

    I don't know much stuff by him but some of that early stuff is so sad it's almost painful to listen to.

    Really like "Look Sharp". Graham Maby is a great bass player.

    The double live album featuring 3 versions of "Is She Really Going Out With Him" is one of my all-time favorites. That live version of "Don't Wanna Be Like That" is my personal Joe Jackson favorite song. "I'm the Man" and "Be My Number Two" are up there as well.

    He's given us many, many excellent songs.

    One of my all-time favorites. Absolutely love the early stuff ("On Your Radio," with its lyrics and attitude, is the quintessential punk rock song), but also the different reinventions of his sound as his career progressed. "Real Men" is an incredibly powerful song. I agree with the genius label.
