Thousand Things I Want To Say To You
On April 29th 1977, The Jam released their debut single, 'In the City'. It reached Number 40 in the May UK charts, beginning a streak of 18 Top 40 singles for The Jam.

'"In the City" was, for me, the first real song I ever wrote. I'd been writing since 1972, but that was the first time I collided with my own generation. We loved that tune. Some nights at The Marquee we'd play it three times in a set. People loved it. It became anthemic through repetition.' - Paul Weller in A THOUSAND THINGS

The song earned The Jam a loyal fan base, many of which are still dedicated followers of Paul Weller's career nearly 40 years later.
