Concrete Blonde – “Joey”



Captain Quirk Recalls: It was hard to grow up in the early 1990s without coming across this song in one way or another. A beautiful yet sad anthem from the overlooked Bloodletting album, “Joey” is about being in love with an alcoholic. The song was written by Concrete Blonde lead singer Johnette Napolitano about Wall of Voodoo guitarist Marc Moreland, who passed in 2002 from liver failure.
