Yeah, it has all the makings of pop dribble: Written by outside song writers, sung by a then fake band, using mystery studio musicians, recorded with the sheer purpose of cashing in on the Beatles craze.

Yet, the results were great.



Joe Jackson I still can't think of as generic pop. He was coming from a punk/new wave back ground, and was heavily influenced by jazz. I'd put him more in the college-indie scene than commercial pop.
