The Jam Lyrics

Rainclouds came and stole my thunder
Left me barren like a desert
But a sunshine girl like you
It's worth going through
I will never be embarrassed about love again
Tortured winds that blew me over
When I start to think that I'm something special

They tell me that I'm not
And they're right and I'm glad and I'm not
I will never be embarrassed about that again.

Oh baby I'm dreaming of monday,
Oh baby will I see you again
Oh baby I'm dreaming of monday.

If ever there was a song that captures love, youth, naivety, suburbia, and hard-won knowledge then this is it. Very pretty tune. Child like vocals. That signature choppy jangling Rickenbacker. Often overlooked piano part. Beautiful harmonies. A bass line that's a tune by itself. And a drum track that is as subtle as it is a driving force. Weller Foxton and Buckler are as close to perfection here as you can get, in my humble opinion


That bass is hypnotic I wish it were more audible

David Demille

Beautiful analysis.
Well done!


Foxton and Buckler are one of the greatest rythm sections in Rock history and really never get their props. It's time.

hi sorry - 5yrs late with this haha. But I agree. Im from Canada, and got into the Jam when i was around 14, so like 1988. i ended up buying their albums in order even though they were broken up by then. I essentially grew up listening to them (and other stuff). but again, a continent away and a few years removed - I always thought they were great as a trio And that Foxon nd Buckler def, later on seem to have been overlooked But at the time - from what iveread - fanzines from the time etc - they were all three of them very much viewed as equals. F and B were the only ones that could make the music really work, and keep up with the different directions the band went in. Unfortunately later on thats been overlooked by people. Ill freely admit I love PW and his early solo stuff i really liked. I even got to meet him on the WildWood tour in Toronto in 1995 - i got his autgraph and got to talk with him for about 20mins it was really cool. Ive heard from other sources that PW is a bit of a jerk. I never got that from him at all. Hes probably only a prick to people that deserve it. But im digressing. Anyway good point, sorry for long and late response but I totally agree with you

Weller called them too punk, I remember. That maybe true, but that's what made their music so special. It set them apart from all other pop-bands and neo-soul acts. It's that special blend that made them so great.
Maybe that's why I never got into TSC or Weller's solo projects. It's undeniably great music, but it just misses this specific touch. Don't get me wrong: I do appreciate what Weller did later on. But when I listen to his later music, I always pick a few tracks that I really like, whereas In the City or Setting Sons are always played as a whole, and often get a second spin.

goes without saying...


there is definately something going on.

+TheFizz40 I agree, but this is not unusual when a singer/songwriter is so iconic, popular and now legendary. I think true fans of The Jam will all agree with you

Bruce Foxton - arguably one of the greatest bass players of all time and an integral part of the Jam sound, as is so evident in this particular track :)
