The complexities of the overreaching chords are far too advanced for a mere pop song.
Hip Someone who knows the score. Someone who understands jive talk Someone who is with it The expression is not subject to definition because, if you don't dig what it means, no one can ever tell you.

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.
