Nice! I was listening to a few other tracks off Night and Day recently wondering if RP played any JJ. I thought it fits well. Nice song but I prefer the less commercial ones ... maybe some Jumpin Jive or Fools in Love. Good Work!

And what a great soundtrack!!

Joe is one of the most consistently fine and creative musicians working.  Nearly every album takes his music in a different direction.  In fact, my only real complaint about Radio Paradise is that Bill plays far too little Joe Jackson!

It's certainly underrepresented here.  

RP only has 8 cuts from him in the playist.

I agree that the music perfectly captures the feel of freedom that comes from driving with no destination in mind.

Several years ago, JJ did a guest appearance on WXRT in Chicago and performed this just playing piano, in true ballad style.  It was just gorgeous and I regret I have not been able to find a version like that anywhere.

"Sara Smile" and "She's Gone" are excellent tunes; they had a few other good ones.  Anyhow, this song still sounds great to me - kind of bittersweet memories about that time of my life.

The Fantastic Plastic Machine does a nice, lounge-y cover of this. I love it. I suspect many would not.

You know what? This is really worth reading and adsorbing the implications of what he says. Keep an open mind and try to put away all the 'media' you have been subjected to over the years. . .

JJ is a serious musical talent. Love this song - even if it is overplayed at this point.

He released an album back in 2008, RAIN, that was a return to his pop/rock sound and it is awesome.

That's not really a typical "disco beat" - it's more of a "driving", electronic kind of rhythm, and doesn't accentuate any beat as disco rhythms generally do.  Surely, it can be considered an '80s dance beat, but "disco beats" were typified by songs like "Stayin' Alive" or "I Will Survive", and usually featured the "open-high-hat-on-the-upbeat" affect.
Anyhow, as you said, "dated" or not, it's still a good tune.
