The complexities of the overreaching chords are far too advanced for a mere pop song.

I don't mind that song as far as 80s Bowie goes, but AB was the first Jam song I heard, after reading for years about how hip they were. It makes my day.

I am reminded of the fact that late period Jam is definitely my preference. Probably from Absolute Beginners onwards.
My all time favourite is The Bitterest Pill, and I think Weller is trying his best to do his Bowie voice on it.
