Pretty Women Out Walking With Gorillas Down My Street.....

Joe Jackson's first album, "Look Sharp" remains one of my favorite records, 25+ years after it's release. I was just listening to it during my commute yesterday! While decidedly non-commercial, it did spawn a pop hit, "Is She Really Going Out With Him", which made it's Top 40 debut today (7/9) back in 1979. This made it all the way up to 21 on the pop charts. I still have by special edition of this ablum, which came on 2 x 10" dics. Sadly, the little "Look Sharp" button that came with it is AWOL......

I'm an a cappella singer! This is a very popular song to do sans back-up music. :)

A-Ha!
I've seen Joe Jackson do it a-capella live, very cool.
