I should have said '1st Wave Ska' instead of 'Actual Ska' cuz I mean no disrespect to the followers. That said, I like the direction the thread has gone.

Here's more classic Ska by Baba Brooks

Hardly ska tracks though. The Specials had lost the plot by then, and House Of Fun is a pop track.

For me.... The Amphetameanies at their best - Say Something Special

or

Big D and The Kids Table - Noise Complaint.

Both on Youtube, but I've not posted enough yet to put links up.



Thats this week anyway, probably change by later!

Specials ARE 2nd wave Ska without a doubt and a band that had lost the plot by then? They only made 2 albums and although the first is superior they are still absolute classics and indeed templates for the Ska that followed. Just a shame that most of it was two bit Ska Punk bands who think that a bit of fast skanking on a track constitutes as Ska whilst playing generic Pop Punk riffs.

I think each and every person has their own personal most popular ska song . I know mine is always changing between all sorts of various ska songs. I can never stick with one favorite. Ska is sooo good.
