Posted on by Melissa Burton in Music | 2 Comments

Welcome to Tunes For Tuesday – The 70′s Edition for July!   It’s the last week of Tunes For Tuesday 70′s Edition and today I’m featuring Joe Jackson.  Not Michael Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson but the English singer-songwriter who was known for a few piano hits in the 80′s.  Joe was often seen as sullen in his videos but I happen to like his music style.  I see a lot of Joe Jackson in soulful piano performers like David Gray. …
