Marshall Crenshaw!!! "I'll know right away by the look in her eyes...she harbors no illusions and she's wordly-wise..,.and I'll know when I give her a listen, she, she's what I've been missing....This is put together nicely with Marshall's tune...
"These things inside me, they repeat like broken records...Spinning pretty somethings behind my eyes..And when I can't look at you, I can paint your picture perfectly in my mind... And when I get old, I'm gonna miss you all the time.." "I wish I was the wind, I'd touch your face..." Ryan Adams
"They say that looks don't count for much and so there goes your proof. Logical advice gets you in a whirl. But at least I'm here in line. The mist across the windows hides the lines.." How cool is Joe Jackson? I'll tell you how cool he is: His talent earned him a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music where he honed his craft. He can play 9 instruments (10 if you count childhood violin lessons. He sings, writes; a true musician & connoisseur of music. And I like his looks (& style)!
The voice ain't as pretty as it used to be, but his words and music continue to bring pleasure to my being!!! Quote: Critic Daniel Durchholz described his voice as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car." But he sure can write - love his weathered face!
