Beat Surrender Lyrics
anonymous Nov 27th 2021 report
Might be a little on the nose, but I've always thought the most important lyrics are in the bridge:
"And if you feel there's no passion,
No quality sensation,
Seize that young determination,
Show the fakers you ain't foolin'
You'll see me come runnin'
To the sound of your strummin'
Fill my heart with joy and gladness
I've lived too long in the shadows of sadness"
This was the final Jam single, and Weller started up his record label, Respond in the dying days of The Jam (indeed, one of his first signings, Tracie, sang backing vocals). This was basically a call for new acts, fresh blood in the music scene.
No wonder Foxton and Buckler were pissed off.
