About You're The Best Thing

"You're the Best Thing" is a song by the English band The Style Council which was their sixth single to be released. It was composed by lead singer Paul Weller, recorded at Weller's own studio Solid Bond Studios, and was released in 1984. It is the second single from the band's début album, Café Bleu (1984). Café Bleu was renamed My Ever Changing Moods in the United States to capitalise on the success of the first single. In the UK and Australasia, the song was released as a Double A-sided single with "The Big Boss Groove". Both the 7" and 12" formats were officially titled 'Groovin'", although edited versions of both songs appeared on the 7" release.

I could be discontent 
And chase the rainbows end
I might win much more but lose all that is mine

I could be a lot 
But I know I'm not
I'm content just with the riches that you bring 

I might shoot to win 
And commit the sin
Wanting more than I've already got
I could runaway 
But I'd rather stay
In the warmth of your smile lighting up my day
The one that makes me say

'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened 
To me or my world
You're the best thing that ever happened 
So don't go away

I might be a king 
And steal my peoples things
But I don't go for that power crazy way
All that I could rule 
I don't check for fools
All that I need is to be left to live my way
So listen what I say

'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened 
To me or my world
You're the best thing that ever happened 
So don't go away

Listen to what I say

'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened 
To me or my world
You're the best thing that ever happened 
So don't go away

I could chase around 
For nothing to be found
But why look for something that is never there
I may get it wrong sometimes 
But I'll come back in style
For I realize your love means more than anything
The song you makes me say

'Cause you're the best thing that ever happened 
To me or my world
You're the best thing that ever happened 
So don't go away

You're the best thing that ever happened 
To me or my world
You're the best thing that ever happened 
Now don't go, I said don't go, no no don't go away

The Style Council

The Style Council were an English band, formed in 1983 by the ex-The Jam singer and guitarist Paul Weller, with keyboardist Mick Talbot. The permanent line-up grew to include drummer Steve White and Weller's then-wife, vocalist Dee C. Lee. Other artists such as Tracie Young and Tracey Thorn (Everything but the Girl) also collaborated with the group. As with Weller's previous band, most of this London based outfit's hits were in their homeland, although the band did score six top 40 hits in Australia, and seven top 40 hits in New Zealand. more »
