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?

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).
