The Style Council’s ‘My Ever Changing Moods‘ just one of several superb songs on Ted Lasso this week
The British new wave band The Style Council’s ‘My Ever Changing Moods‘ was the opening song on Ted Lasso this week — Ted Lasso, Season 3, Episode 8, “We’ll Never Have Paris“.
The song was played during the episode’s intro as everyone is congratulating AFC Richmond on winning so many games, and as the camera pans to Ted who is sitting in a pub in front of his now-ex wife and her new boyfriend.
The Style Council’s ‘My Ever Changing Moods‘ was released in 1984 as the indie band’s fifth single. It was also the lead single from their debut studio album Café Bleu.
An album that hit the #2 spot on the UK Albums chart, as well as ranking high up on charts in seven other countries including the United States.
‘My Ever Changing Moods’ was written by the band’s lead singer Paul Weller, and went on to become the biggest success he had in America.
That’s because the pop track charted at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100, and at #88 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
In the UK, the song performed even better peaking at #5 on the UK Singles chart.
As for the meaning of The Style Council’s ‘My Ever Changing Moods‘, Weller himself once hinted that the song had started off as being about himself, but quickly changed into a commentary on the stupidity and pure evil of men in governments.
Stupidity that can quickly lead to nuclear war, with the common man the ones having to deal with the after effects:
The hush before the silence, the winds after the blast
Oh the hush before the silence, the winds after the blast
I wish we’d move together, this time the bosses sued
Oh but we’re caught up in the wilderness and an ever changing mood
Teardrops turn to children, who’ve never had the time
To commit the sins they pay for through, another’s evil mind
Listen to The Style Council’s ‘My Ever Changing Moods‘ in the song’s original music video and on Spotify.
The indie band itself was founded in 1983, but after their music began to lose popularity in the last part of the 80s, they broke up and went their separate ways in 1989.
