[The JukeBox] S6E10 – Joji – Slow Dancing in the Dark

George Miller made his name on the internet way before the release and popularity of Slow Dancing in the Dark. For several years, George was under the persona of Filthy Frank.

Frank had a comedy skit show named The Filthy Frank Show that was on the lines of Jackass + Really Dark Adult Humour which became a popular mainstay for his channel until he started focusing on his music career under the name Pink Guy who was a recurring character on The Filthy Frank Show. Pink Guy was George in a pink jumpsuit who made rap/hip-hop songs in the same vain as the videos that he was making. 2 albums were released in 2017.

Around this time, George’s started to go under the stage name of Joji as he started to release music content on YouTube

At the tail end of 2017, George ceased all creation of content under the Filthy Frank and Pink Guy name.

In September 2018, Joji released SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK single which was part of his October 28th release of his first album BALLADS 1.

As per the last two posts from [The JukeBox], I found music has been popularised from the app TikTok, SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK is no exception.


I don’t want a friend (just me)
I want my life in two (my life in two)
Just one more night
Waiting to get there
Waiting for you (all night)
I’m done fighting all night (waiting for you)

When I’m around slow dancing in the dark
Don’t follow me, you’ll end up in my arms
You have made up your mind
I don’t need no more signs
Can you?
Can you?

Give me reasons we should be complete
You should be with him, I can’t compete
You looked at me like I was someone else, oh well
Can’t you see? (Can’t you see?)
I don’t wanna slow dance (I don’t want to slow dance)
In the dark
Dark

When you gotta run
Just hear my voice in you (my voice in you)
Shutting me out of you (shutting me out of you)
Doing so great (so great, so great)
You

Used to be the one (used to be the one)
To hold you when you fall
Yeah, yeah, yeah (when you fall, when you fall)
I don’t fuck with your tone (I don’t fuck with your tone)
I don’t wanna go home (I don’t wanna go home)
Can it be one night?
Can you?
Can you?

Give me reasons we should be complete
You should be with him, I can’t compete
You looked at me like I was someone else, oh well
Can’t you see?
I don’t wanna slow dance (I don’t want to slow dance)
In the dark
Dark
In the dark
Dark
