Quadrophenia (film)

If I had to pinpoint one song of all the tracks that is most memorable I’d have to say “Bell Boy” due to Keith Moon’s cockney accent on vocals. It’s the epitome of camp yet comes across highly believable.

Sting played the role of Ace Face, the bell boy in the movie Quadrophenia.

“Bell Boy” – He meets a former Ace Face who now holds the place as a bell boy at the very hotel the Mods tore up. He looks on Jimmy with a mixture of pity and contempt. The two argue, as Jimmy feels the Ace Face has “sold out”. Jimmy is now feeling that everything, even the Mod lifestyle, has let him down.
