Monday Music Mambo 2008/3

The other day I received an email announcing Joe Jackson in concert over in Miami Beach. Wizard was reading over my shoulder and asked, “Who’s Joe Jackson?” I answered, “A musician from the 1980s.” Wizard’s comment, “Another old rocker. Snore.” So, we surfed over to YouTube and found a link to Joe Jackson’s latest CD, “Rain“. Wizard was unimpressed.

I got to thinking about Joe Jackson’s music that was popular in the early 1980s. It was the soundtrack of my college years. Pop yet edgier than anything I ever listened to. Remember these gems?

This week, The Zone wants to know

What’s the soundtrack of your college years?

For me it definitely includes Joe Jackson, The Police, and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” album (yes, album).
