Joe Jackson is incredibly awesome. I couldn't really pick, but all of these are way up there:

-"Look Sharp!"
-"Is She Really Going Out with Him?"
-"Happy Ending"
-"Real Men"
-"Be My Number Two"
-"Don't Wanna Be Like That"
-"Breaking Us in Two"
-"I'm the Man"
-"Memphis"
-"Nineteen Forever"

And a nod to his version of "The Harder They Come" because it's just a cool song all around

With "Breaking Us In Two" a close second.

I voted for


Breaking Us in Two

but it's really hard to choose between my three faves:
Steppin' Out
Is She Really Going Out With Him

Why are you so surprised?  It's not like I said I hadn't heard of The Beatles.

"Steppin' Out".  The Jumpin' Jive album is pretty good too.  I like "What's The Use Of Getting Sober (When You're Gonna Get Drunk Again)" :D

Steppin' Out will always be my fave from him. Breaking Us in Two would be second and Is She Really Going Out with Him? would be third.

Three years later, I have changed my mind.

"Breaking Us In Two" and "Steppin' Out" are now tied for my favourites by this guy.

Is She Really Going Out With Him? is also really good.

Other:

"Pretty Boys"

This appeared on the soundtrack for "Times Square" (1980), not to be confused with "Look Sharp!" album cut "Pretty Girls."  "Pretty Boys" had a fast-paced ska rhythm with lyrics foreshadowing MTV:

Pretty boys - on my TV screen
Teeth so white and hair so clean
Pretty boys - sing and play guitars
Pretty boys get to be big stars
How do you rate my sex appeal from one to ten
Is my image just a bit confusing
Maybe I should get a facelift, start again
Maybe I should trade my pointed shoes in
'Cause talent don't count
For Pretty Boys
Those promo people got a lot to answer for
You can take your face and see just where it fits
Be a pretty pawn in someone else's war
Your baby blue eyes - somebody else's wits
Equals success
For Pretty Boys
I wanna see a human being on my TV set
Want some action for the fat and thin man
They're getting closer but they ain't got robots yet
Just a hero with a smile like a tin man
No brains and no heart
Just Pretty Boys
