This is The Style Council.

0:03:410:03:43

# Your hair hangs in golden steps

0:03:510:03:53

# You're a bona fide in every respect

0:03:530:03:57

# You are walking through streets that mean nothing to you

0:03:570:04:02

# You believe you're above it and I don't really blame you

0:04:020:04:06

# Maybe that's why you speak like a child

0:04:060:04:09

# The things you're saying like I'm so free and so wild

0:04:090:04:13

# And I believe it when you look in my eyes

0:04:130:04:17

# You offer me a life and never lies

0:04:170:04:20

# Least only the kind to make me smile

0:04:200:04:24

# Your clothes are clean and your mind is productive

0:04:260:04:29

# It shops in stores where only the best buy

0:04:290:04:33

# You're cool and hard never sound like a lecher

0:04:330:04:37

# It's probably true but at least there's no lecture

0:04:370:04:40

# I really like it when you speak like a child

0:04:400:04:44

# The crazy sayings like I'm so free and so wild

0:04:440:04:48

# You have to make a bargain with me now

0:04:480:04:51

# A promise that you won't change somehow

0:04:510:04:55

# No way, now how

0:04:550:04:57

# Spent all day thinking about you

0:05:000:05:04

# Spent all night coming to terms with it

0:05:040:05:07

# Time and conditions are built to tame

0:05:070:05:11

# Nothing lasts with age, so people say

0:05:110:05:15

# But I will always try to feel the same

0:05:150:05:19

-Really glad to be back with you on Top Of The Pops once again.

0:06:140:06:18

Here's a band who are here for the very, very first time.

0:06:180:06:20

They come all the way from Iceland. It's only their second record.

0:06:200:06:22

It's from an album simply called Surprise Surprise.

0:06:220:06:26

And if you try to buy this in Iceland,

0:06:260:06:28

you'll have quite a surprise, cos it would cost you £15,

0:06:280:06:31

believe it or not.

0:06:310:06:32

There's a lot to be said for living here, isn't there?

Here's Mezzoforte and Garden Party.

# Face in the window in the night

0:10:140:10:19

# Portraits and pictures you once saw

0:10:400:10:46

# Oaths made in silence still return

0:11:070:11:12

# Only for you

0:11:120:11:14

# Cast like a shroud you're clutching on

0:11:160:11:21

# Visions in blue

0:11:210:11:23

# Catch aimless smiles from passers by

0:11:250:11:30

# Blistered and broken in reply

0:11:340:11:39

# Breath seems to mist the hazy view

0:11:420:11:48
