Paul Weller's intro dedicates the song to a certain 2 Tone musician. I'll let you check it out. Wink

I knew I'd heard him say this, but I thought it was on their 1982 Tube appearance.

Btw, it's uncannily similar to this track by World Column.

Uncannily similar is an understatement!

Put it this way, they'd never get away with it now.

Weller also got way with it when it comes to 'Start' and The Beatles 'Taxman'. How that one didn't end up in a court case I'll never know.

Seeing as he's escaped any writs, it's not a bad idea to continue with a few more. Smile

'Sunflower', anyone?

Maybe the fact that a number of Beatles songs were also "based upon" other tunes. Would have been a case of pots and kettles, I reckon. Laughing

From ROLLING STONE:

Accused of exploiting other artists' songs in the Beatles, John Lennon defended himself by saying, "It wasn't a rip-off; it was a love-in." Paul McCartney's take: "We pinch as much from other people as they pinch from us."

Full 2015 article ('Beatles' 5 Boldest Rip-Offs') is here - with examples.
