The Specials • Friday Night, Saturday Morning

The Specials

In 1981, The Specials released an EP for Ghost Town, and the three cuts included Ghost Town (Extended Version), Why? (Extended Version), and Friday Night, Saturday Morning. The band, which used the light and poppy sound of ska to make searing political statements on a regular basis. As the band was touring in support of the second album, More Specials, they say the economic conditions around the country take a toll on the people. They wrote songs like Ghost Town, and Friday Night, Saturday Morning, in response. Since it is a Saturday morning, I thought this would work. Enjoy.
