Joe Jackson – You Can’t Get What You Want (Till you know what you want)

I’ve always been a fan of Joe Jackson’s work. It’s considered 80s New Wave, but I think more because of the time it came out rather than actual style of music. Joe Jackson had the sound of smooth jazz mixed with big band!

This song came from my favorite JJ album, ‘Body and Soul’. The front and back cover designed to look like a Blue Note Records album from the 50s-60s, just gives it an extra touch of class.

You Can’t Get What You Want (Till You Know What You Want) made it all the way to the #15 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100!
