Some say this was the beginning of the end for for new wave mod revival – a bit too Motown for purists who loved the early Jam releases- and then came the aftermath: Style Council. Yikes. But this up-tempo soul number always hits the spot. It’s timeless and will always sound great whenever you hear it again. It was placed quite nicely in that Billy Elliot film a while back. Something about Billy keeping the faith, and sticking to his pointe shoes. As Buddy Love said so eloquently at the end of Nutty Professor (1963) – “You might as well like yourself. Just think about all the time, you’re going to have to spend with you.” Godspeed.
