Today's ear X-tacy: Joe Jackson "Steppin' Out"

Today's ear X-tacy features a classic track or deep-cut from the Alternative era every weekday at 10:10.

English musician, singer and songwriter Joe Jacksonspent years studying music and playing clubs. In 1979, he scored a hit with his first release, "Is She Really Going Out with Him?" It was followed by a number of new wave singles, before he moved to more jazz-inflected pop music.

In 1982, he released his 5th studio album, Night And Day. "Steppin' Out," the second track released as a single, was Jackson's biggest hit in the US and received a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year in 1983.
In honor of Joe’s 69th birthday, we’re featuring “Steppin’ Out” as today’s ear X-tacy!
