Joe Right by Dark Company, from the album Can of Worms.

You say the grass is greener
To me it just looks cleaner
Must I have to say that you are right
You buy your answers daily
Before the light is fading
You know you’re really gone and out of sight

You always got umbrella
You always one dry fella
Must I have to listen to your talk
You pick the winning ticket
No-one else can hit it
You even got a special way to walk

Insurance is your temple
You set some fine example
Must I have to keep smiles from my face
You save up for the summer
You sure long distance runner
But I don’t see no gravy on your plate

You’re so legal, you’re so honest
You’re so good you are a tonic
Must I have to hide my jokes and sins
You never ever wonder
You always so much stronger
No feelings you don’t own do you let in

Fun Facts:

  • Joe Right is a song that Pete wrote in honour of his dear friend Terry.
  • It is in the key of F#m.
  • It is one of the earliest songs that Alien Heat dropped after trying it.
  • George had already composed the guitar for this song as a separate solo piece and the vocals seemed to fit pretty well.
  • However, Pete was after a punk/speed metal sound for the song so was not keen on the jazzy melodic feel that George brought to the Alien Heat rehearsal rooms that day.
  • As the song also involved some chords with long names, Alien Heat never took it beyond a vague one-off run through the first verse..
  • A heavier version of the song was recorded on the Old Hands album.
  • We used the recording of the heavier Old Hands version to capture Pete’s vocals for the original jazz version.
  • When he heard it again, Pete seemed to like it a fair bit better.
  • As a solo guitar piece, it was one that George used to play in the subways of Plymouth during the winter of 1990-1 to earn a few coins.
