Songs of The Day (fom my I-pod)....It's Paul Weller's birthday today so here area couple of tunes from his bands The Jam & The Style Council.
In The City-The Jam (1977) a classic punk tune from Britain. This was the first of 18 consecutive top 40 hits for the band in England. didnt translate as well to America but you certainly can hear some early Who in their stuff
Youre The Best Thing-Style Council (1984) Weller gets soulful with this 80's tune. hard to believe sometimes it was the same guy. Here is the band at Live Aid in 1985
