“It’s good to be wise when you’re young
‘Cos you can only be young but the once
Enjoy yourself and have lots of fun”
As clocking off approaches, everyone should be thankful that it’s Friday again!
Everyone should also be thankful we’re one day closer to the ‘full reunion’ of The Specials, one of the most influential in British popular culture.
“We’ve all done good stuff individually but we’ve never done anything as good individually as we did collectively” says John Bradbury, the bands drummer recently. Shakey Times couldn’t agree more.
Their socially conscience lyrics still have as much resonance today as they did almost thirty years age and make Alex Turner look like a high school poet. Not all their songs were poignant odes to their time though, and what better day to remember how much fun songs like ‘Enjoy Yourself’ really are than today.
We think The Specials sounds good any day of the week and hope you agree.
