Joe Jackson’s ‘Look Sharp’ album was played endlessly at parties I went to years ago. I love this record.
Here’s a couple of songs which kind of fit with my previous post the deluded optimist . The lyrics are worth a a good listen.

‘fools in love, they think they’re heroes, cause they get to feel more pain, I say fools in love are zeroes…’ what a great line!

I know quite a few people who fit that lyric. It’s scary.

scary indeed Selma, but where would we be without fools and love 🙂

Yes, I like that. Another love addict!

Thanks for these links Gabe, great to hear a bit of Joe Jackson… an underrated songwriter in my opinion!

Underrated songwriter that’s for sure Graham (and so many are, unfortunately).
