The Style Council – Speak Like A Child (Live on The Tube) RARE HQ

KeeFHQVideos

Very rare footage that was never shown on TV of The Style Council performing Speak like A Child live on The Tube in 1984. The program had gone off air but the band continued to play.

Sorry about the talk over. The footage was shown recently for the first time on TV. Any clip is better than none. 🙂

Have you ever chased the night that sailed in front of you
On a boat that’s bound for hope but left you in the queue
With your shouting, waving, taunting, flaunting friends as crew
Telling you that every lie you ever heard was true
Have you stood upon that deck have you ever had it blue

Have you ever woke to find the morning didn’t come
Undelivered with the papers stolen by someone
Found the milkman bound and gagged and shackles ’round the sun
And the holder of the keys turns out to be the one
The girl you had your heart set on have you ever had it blue
Have you ever had it blue, have you ever had it blue

Have you ever watched the day, passing by your door
Powerless to change it’s course, your feet fixed to the floor
When all the people you thought you knew are changing more and more
Even the girl you thought would see, seems only to ignore
The only love worth fighting for

Have you ever had it blue?
Have you ever had it blue, ever had it blue?
Have you ever had it blue, ever had it blue?
Have you ever had it blue?
Have you ever had it blue
Have you ever had it blue

Paul Weller – Shout To The Top (The Style Council) | Live in Sydney | Moshcam

Paul Weller performing Shout To The Top (The Style Council) live at Metro Theatre in Sydney on 24 October 2010.

Paul Weller (born John William Weller on 25 May 1958) is an English singer-songwriter. Starting with the mod/punk-rock band ‘The Jam’ (1976–1982), Weller then went on to branch out musically to a more soulful style with The Style Council (1983–1989). In 1991 he re-established himself as a successful solo artist and continues to remain a respected singer, lyricist, and guitarist, a fact reaffirmed by his awarding of the 2009 BRIT award for Best Male Solo Artist. He has remained a national rather than an international star, and much of his songwriting is rooted in British culture. He is also the principal figure of the 1970s and 80s mod revival and is often referred to as the Modfather.

The Style Council performing at Live Aid in front of 72,000 people in Wembley Stadium, London on the 13th of July, 1985. The event was organized by Sir Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for the Ethiopian famine disaster. Broadcast across the world via one of the largest satellite link-ups of all time, the concerts were seen by around 40% of the global population.

 

 

The Style Council were an English band formed in 1983 by Paul Weller, the former singer, songwriter, and guitarist with the punk rock/new wave/mod revival band The Jam, and keyboardist Mick Talbot, previously a member of Dexys Midnight Runners, The Bureau, and The Merton Parkas. The band enabled Weller to take a more soulful direction with his music.

The permanent line-up grew to include drummer Steve White and Weller’s then-wife, vocalist Dee C. Lee. Other artists such as Tracie Young and Tracey Thorn (Everything but the Girl) also collaborated with the group. As with Weller’s previous band, most of the London-based group’s hits were in their homeland. The band scored seven Top 10 hits in the UK and six Top 40 hits in Australia during the 1980s.
