30 Day Song Challenge: Day 13: The First Song That Plays On Shuffle: “A Town Called Malice”- The Jam. The Jam were big in the UK- this single debuted at #1 on the UK Singles Chart in 1982- in America The Jam was non-existent on the charts- which was unfortunate. I had heard of The Jam years before I actually head them- but they were worth the wait.

    • I agree on the Style Council but I have really liked Waller’s solo career. Again he has been huge in the UK but in the US I think the only hit was My Ever Changing Moods with the Style Council.

    • I only ever knewYou’re The Best Thing. I was in U K at the time. I do not recall Style Council ever having any more hits; I was into punk and new wave at the time. My youngsters cannot believe my punk fast.

    • There was a lot of great punk music during that era… Style Council didn’t last long- which I think was a good thing.

    • He is still going strong- his albums get no attention in the U.S. but I have a number of them- he’s done a lot of great stuff over the years as a solo artist. Again he’s big in the UK- in the US- at least his albums are available to get!

    • Thanks this is so interesting. I went and checked Wikipedia. Had no idea Paul Wella’s career had taken off again just as I left the UK.I just saw a recent US interview with him. Grey hair suits him.

    • I get a couple music magazines every month from England- MOJO and Uncut–and it seems like they always have articles on him- even special issues.. he seems to put out a new album every year.
