This song was Joe Jackson’s first single ever! He released it in 1978 as the first single of the album Look Sharp! The song would hit the charts in 1979, when the album was released. Joe Jackson said he first heard the title, and then started thinking about the content with the pretty girls who meet monsters. Later live versions would also be hits, and often you hear the live version on the radio rather than the studio version. Enjoy
Joe Jackson- Is She Really Going Out With Him?
How to define this song? I think it’s a little jazzy, but it’s not at the same time. It’s touching, and it’s not. What I do know for sure, is that Joe Jackson has a great voice, and it completely fits this simple arrangement. Just enjoy
