Too-cool tunes: 'Shout to the Top' by Style Council
Could you figure out the "Name that '80s Tune" snippet in our last Stuck in the '80s podcast? Here's the full tune: Shout to the Top by the Style Council.
The British band formed in 1983 with former Jam guru Paul Weller and keyboardist Mick Talbot. Shout to the Top was a Top 10 song in Britain and New Zealand in 1984, but missed the charts entirely in the U.S. The band would eventually break up in 1989, but compilations of their material are still being released. There's no official website for them (if you go to stylecouncil.com, you get something totally unrelated) but their fans continue to honor them on a MySpace page.
