Joe Jackson - "Steppin Out" - Song of the Day - [10-1-14]
I don't know why but this song always gets stuck in my head when I'm in a traffic jam. It's "Steppin Out" by Joe Jackson. The quick paced bass line is what catches my attention, it's a throwback tempo and pattern in the song. Similar to an old school film score, during a driving scene, where the tempo adds to the visual element of the story. Joe Jackson is a composer and he plays multiple instruments including saxophone and piano. "Steppin' Out" is from back in 1982, and it properly represents the new wave phase in the music scene which was huge in the 80's. This is also the official video for Joe Jackson's "Steppin Out" and it's still classy thirty years later.
