Caught Up In A Whirlwind
Tomorrow night I'll be at the hottest show in NYC - at Irving Plaza for Paul Weller's special evening of Style Council music (read about it here). I don't have time for a proper Style Council post, but if you think of Paul only as the Modfather or a Dadrocker, know that he did some great pop in the 80's...
The Style Council My Ever Changing Moods live video
An essential song of the 80's, this is the acoustic version from their first full-length. You may know the jauniter 12" version. This was the point at which the former modster woke up and said, "Hey, I sound black! I should do something more soulful!"
The Style Council Speak Like A Child video
Exhilirating! One night in 1998 I was happily walking alone in Edinburgh and a bar was blasting this track. It was one of those moments where you know you are truly happy.
The Style Council Changing Of The Guard video
From their last real album Confessions Of A Pop Group, a white-blond Paul goes regally orchestral. That's PW's ex wife, Dee C Lee, on the duet.
