“The Joker” is a song by the Steve Miller Band from their 1973 album The Joker. It is one of two Steve Miller Band songs that feature the nonce word “pompatus”. The song topped the US Billboard Hot 100 in early 1974.
More than 16 years later, in September 1990, it reached number one in the UK Singles Chart for two weeks] after being used in “Great Deal”, a Hugh Johnson-directed television advertisement forLevi’s, thus holding the record for the longest gap between transatlantic chart-toppers. This reissue of “The Joker” also topped the Irish Singles Chart, the New Zealand RIANZ Singles Chart, the Dutch Nationale Top 100 and the Dutch Top 40.
The first line of the lyrics is a reference to the song “Space Cowboy” from Miller’s Brave New World album. Following lines refer to two other songs: “Gangsterof Love” fromSailor and “Enter Maurice” from Recall the Beginning…A Journey from Eden.
