Song of the Day: 'Long Hot Summer' by the Style Council

From HERE.

I was turning 16 when this summer classic by the Style Council came out. Although deep down I knew Paul Weller wasn't gay, I loved that he was willing to tease people, and do so in a less-obvious way than Annie Lennox and Boy George were at the time. We've come so far since 1983, but I still don't know whether to laugh or cry as I watch so many of our gains slip away.
