"Speak Like A Child" was released by The Style Council 30 years ago today, 11 March 1983. An uplifting love song, it marked a decided and distinctive departure from Paul's previous band, The Jam. Full of Mick Talbot's Hammond organ and synths along with a funky slap bass, "Speak" was a big hit single reaching #4 on the UK singles chart. The flip side was "Party Chambers." A light Pop Jazz number with a weaving synth, the tune is kind of joyful musically, but filled with sad lyrics of lost love. A classic Weller B-side!
