The Joker

The Joker by The Steve Miller Band was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 15, 1990 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This finally hit #1 on the UK charts in 1990, thanks to its inclusion in a Levi's jeans commercial. In the spot, a guy rides a motorcycle into an office building and rolls up to an attractive worker, who puts on a pair of 501s and gets on the back of his bike as he takes her away. Homer Simpson sings this (poorly) on a second season episode of The Simpsons where we flashback to him driving to school. The line "I'm a midnight toker" is a marijuana reference. Many stoners related to this song, and in 2012, Spin magazine named it the most commercially successful pot song of all time.
