everyone free to contribute, I loved Two tone/ska when it was out.

Hassled Fri 05-Sep-08 22:19:05

Can I join?

I have a 6 year old DS3 who is obsessed with James Bond and I recently introduced him to that track - he loves it!

Mirror in the Bathroom is great but Stand Down Margaret was their finest hour, I feel.

The Specials by the Specials was the best 2Tone album IMHO - Concrete Jungle, You're Wondering Now etc etc - all just great.
Still makes me bop around the place whenever I hear it.

'One Step Beyond' was the first album I bought, BGD.

Hassled: We always have to play that album on long car trips.

MarsLady Fri 05-Sep-08 22:37:30

Oh the memories. I loved loved loved this song. Used to dance and dance to this with my cousins and sistersgrin

SixSpotBurnet Fri 05-Sep-08 22:37:46

Oh I loved Mirror in the Bathroom.

And Ghost Town.

And I like The Selector a lot too - On My Radio, anyone?

I also (and this is very uncool) had a lot of time for UB40's first album blush.

SlartyBartFast Fri 05-Sep-08 22:38:23

and this too

2shoes Fri 05-Sep-08 22:38:53

ghost town always reminds me of leatherhead

SixSpotBurnet Fri 05-Sep-08 22:39:10

Wasn't it Stand Down Margaret, not Stand Up Margaret?

SlartyBartFast Fri 05-Sep-08 22:39:15

MarsLady Fri 05-Sep-08 22:39:35

Rudy! A message to you Rudy!grin

SixSpotBurnet Fri 05-Sep-08 22:40:11

I thought Ghost Town was about all those places that had riots? Did they have riots in Leatherhead (where is Leatherhead)?

SixSpotBurnet Fri 05-Sep-08 22:41:10

Slarty - you beat me to it!

I think The Selector also did a very harrowing song about rape, called The Boiler - although that was probably a bit later?

Hassled Fri 05-Sep-08 22:42:05

Ghost Town was about Coventry, where the band came from. I'd sort of prefer it to have been about Leatherhead, though

unknownrebelbang Fri 05-Sep-08 22:45:03

I used to sing it about Stoke.

SlartyBartFast Fri 05-Sep-08 22:46:33
