Joe Jackson Lyrics


Joe Jackson was born on August 11, 1954, in
Burton-on-Trent, England, but grew up in the South Coast
naval port town of Portsmouth. An awkward, skinny,
asthmatic child, he joined a violin class (aged 11) in
order to escape from school sports, and soon fell in love
with music. He claims that this saved his life.

Pretty soon Joe switched to piano and started to compose.
His teenage musical hero was Beethoven, but he also loved
jazz and rock, and by age 16 he was playing piano gigs,
trying to entertain drunken sailors and skinheads in More...

    ------ About the song Invisible Man performed by Joe Jackson

I introduced myself some years ago as the invisible man Joe outside a local pub of yours in north end Pompey after gray Maby's ( my brother in Law)or was it your birthday bash. This was after you and your ex Fiancee's ( my wife ) failure to acknowledge my existance in many mutual gatherings....ring any bells Joe ??

Grow Up? Not Me | Reviewer: Steve
    ------ About the song Nineteen Forever performed by Joe Jackson

A classic Joe Jackson song with that catchy beat and full of melodic hooks, this anthem to remaining young has a bittersweet air to it...JJ looks through tinted glasses at the 9 to 5 crowd who have "sold out" and prefers to dance the night away. But in phrases such as "only my mirror sees me crying", it becomes obvious that our hero knows that he can't avoid aging, he can just ignore it. Add the not-so-subtle drug reference makes it seem, well.....autobiographical? Like most of "Blaze of Glory", this tune stays with you, even if you only get to be 19 once.

great song | Reviewer: E
