Composed by lead singer Paul Weller, this song is a homage to Curtis Mayfield with overtones of nuclear threat. Weller told Mojo: "It started from the title. I thought, 'What a great title, My Ever Changing Mood. But it's about nuclear holocaust as well. 'The hush before the silence, the winds after the blast' and all that. I think it's probably like a lot of songs I've done... they start of being about myself and then I get bored with it and I make it into something else."
The song peaked at #29 on the Hot 100. It remains Paul Weller's greatest success on the US charts (including his releases as a member of The Jam and as a solo artist). Cafe Bleu was renamed Ever Changing Moods in America to cash in on the song's success.
The Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" came top of a 2013 Spotify poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear people singing incorrectly. Many believe Annie Lennox is singing: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?"
