Classic Track of Day – The Jam

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.
