A great breakout record for Rickie Lee Jones, "Chuck E's in Love" presented a funky jazz blues feel that surrounds the melody which is set atop a fabulous groove that engages the listener from start to finish. The lyrics have a bit of L.A. music history to them, as the subject in the title is none other than Chuck E. Weiss, who, along with Jones and Tom Waits, was one of the guiding lights of Los Angeles rustic bop/jazz movement of the late '70s. The playful, romantic lyrics are heavily shaded with Jones' love and influence of the L.A. noir/beat attitude, and this is indeed one of the ingredients that made it unique and fresh. There is a lovely bridge that finds Jones' searching narrative accompanied only by her acoustic guitar before returning to the effortlessly catchy chorus, which allows the song to breathe effectively.

Or in this case, a list of songs that didn't have this great tune.

Nevertheless, still a very wonderful surprise!  :D
