American Top 40 PastBlast, 7/14/79: Joe Jackson, “Is She Really Going Out with Him?”

I really, really loved this song during its run on the chart (and I still do). Don’t think Q102 gave it the time of day, but I know I heard it on WEBN. I very much consider this to be a harbinger of where my music tastes would trend over time . It’s at #35, steaming toward a peak of #21.

Joe Jackson scored three more Top 40 hits; “Steppin’ Out,” from the fall of my freshman year in college, is another stunner, and the others are plenty good.
