Steppin' out - Joe Jackson

'Steppin' out' was a hit for Joe Jackson in 1982. The song is about the anticipation and excitement of a night out on the town. It became Jackson's biggest hit in the USA, reaching number 6 in the US Billboard Hot 100. In the UK singles chart, it also reached this position.

When his record company released the compilation album 'Stepping out: the very best of Joe Jackson' (1990), the track was re-released as a single. It didn't seem like a very logical thing to do, since the song had already been a hit. This time around, the single flopped.

My collection: 7" single no. 1329
Found: Record Exchange, London, October 17, 1990
Cost: 1 pound
Tracks: 'Steppin' out' / 'Sentimental man'
