Cause He Made Me Wanna Be Joe Cool

Posted on

Like many people, I was saddened by the news of B.B. King’s recent passing. The first song that I ever heard from him was Joe Cool which was on the Happy Anniversary Charlie Brown! soundtrack. The song talks about Snoopy’s slick persona who charmed the ladies but never seemed to win them over for long. While I felt bad for Snoopy messing things up with the two ladies in this song, I think B.B. King brought a great, twangy, soulful sound that matched Joe Cool’s persona.

In short, I wanted to be as cool as Joe Cool – maybe I still do.
