Flip through any bin of used vinyl at your neighborhood music shop and you're likely to spot a handful of iconic covers from British new-waver (and vocal cigarette enthusiast) Joe Jackson. He made his name with "Is She Really Going Out With Him?" off his 19799 debut Look Sharp, and followed that up with a handful of albums that consistently tossed solid singles onto the charts before embracing the jazzier side of his pop sensibilities. Jackson's most recent album, 2015's globe-trotting Fast Forward, included a cover of Television's "See No Evil," so don't think he's gotten that stodgy in his old age. —Chris Lay
