It's that Graham Maby bass line that keeps the current flowing.  Always loved his style.

Joe's jazzy stuff was ok but his real brilliance shone on I'm The Man and in his real estate investing. Interestingly, the chap had his head on straight and invested in distressed London real estate back in the '80s

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!

ahh, memories of teenage dating - JJ was there, part of our soundtrack.

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!

Very true. Joe Jackson is a musical genius.

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.

Is this where the beat from Millionaire by Kelis came from?

For me, this has always been THE Jackson. Not Michael or Janet. This is music!
