The Style Council - "My Ever-Changing Moods"

Me Ever Changing Moods (Single  Single Edit) - 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Style Council

(Debuted April 7, 1984, Peaked #29, 14 Weeks on the Chart)

The Style Council was formed out of the ashes of The Jam, who were wildly popular in the U.K. but never managed to chart on the U.S. single charts. After that group split in 1982, singer Paul Weller joined with Mick Talbot and continued with the duo through the rest of the 1980s. Like with The Jam, most of the successes of The Style Council came in their native country, but a couple of singles managed to chart on this side of the Atlantic as well.

The only Top 40 hit was "My Ever Changing Moods," but the success wasn't able to sustain itself. Weller broke up the band in 1989, claiming that passing time would show that their music was overlooked. To date, "My Ever Changing Moods" is Weller's highest-charting U.S. single, between his groups and solo work.
