Shout to the Top

~ My Son’s First Favorite Song ~

I’ve been a fan of Paul Weller since the mid-80s when I saw a Style Council video on an MTV videotape that was sent to me while I was living in Germany. Cafe Blue was the soundtrack to a great birthday weekend trip that my wife and I took up the California coast one year.

Their greatest hits exude cool.

This track was mixed in with several others on a CD I used to keep in my old convertible and my son used to ask for me to play this one over and over when he was about 3 years old and cruising around in his car seat with the car top down. It’s a rock song with a string section as the lead instrument and it’s a perfect slice of heavenly britpop with the Modfather smoothly crooning over the top.
