Joe jackson has been around for years 'Don't you know that it's different for girls' is perhaps his best known hit, but he is brilliant and has a vast catalogue of work. He sounds fine to me! and Bill is just a God!!!!!!

Along with elvis costello, joe jackson pretty much invented new wave music and brought it to the masses. Better than the original imho.

Never heard of Joe Jackson, but i guess the accent is an attempt at copying Jarvis Cockers accent in the original version

The guy has feel, and irony and humour and class, the band provides more than enought timing .
This is what music is meant to be, emotion transmitted via sound.

Joe Jackson eats PULP's lunch. And this version kicks the original's ass around the block. Seriously. The original is full of itself serious and boring. This one blows shit up

Latest comment:

Saw this the night is aired - it's been in my head ever since. Props to PULP (for those of you too young to remember), Ben Folds always rocks (no matter what), Joe Jackson is perfect (again), and what can I say about Shatner (where no man has gone before). Rock music makes you wanna dance, jump, and scream, and here is the proof.

Joe is a Pomm. ie from England. its his real accent. for all you ignoramious's... go get a Joe Jackson album. there is no one better. true musical genuis. clearly seen here. he reinterpreted this song in a way Jarvis Cocker could never hve done !! Joe is the true talent. but all Hats off to Jarvis for writing such a brilliant song. but Joe taeks this to another level all together. like Joe Coker did withthe Beatles "With a Little From My Friends" wy back in the 60's !!
