A to Z of the 80s - J is for Jo, Obviously




Just So You Know.
by Jo Michelmore


And it's at this point in our second A to Z we see a trend emerging, because as also happened in the A to Z of Pop, when we come to the tenth letter of the alphabet, it's all about me. Just so you know, when it comes to the J in any A to Z that I write, the J will always be for Jo. Obviously.


Just so you know, if I ever find this Janet Jackson song at a karaoke joint, I will be singing it. I will not look at the TV screen, because I know all the words. And if my fellow karaoke friends are lucky, I may crack out a dance move. Or two. 




Just so you know, I have quoted the lyrics "I've been caught stealing, once, when I was five..." to a department store security guard. I don't think he'd heard of Jane's Addiction. He checked my bags on the way out.




Just so you know, I think Joy Division have one of the best band names ever, even though they were better in the 70s than 1980. But I'll take any excuse to post some Joy Division. And say the name Joy Division numerous times. Joy Division.




Just so you know, Journey wrote some of my favourite lyrics in any song, ever. And just so you know, south of Detroit is a river, and then Canada, therefore, there is no such place as South Detroit. And also, if you are at karaoke with one of my best friends and I and you're thinking about stealing this duet from us, you will regret it...all the way to South Detroit. Just so you know.
