If YOU like something YOU like something.Surly that's all that

We are all individuals.

"I'm not"

Shut it you.


This rationale excuses Coldplay and U2 fans, so I can not agree.

With either of you.

Your Nan likes The Sex Pistols?

Time may have tamed the song but 'God Save the Queen' was a single which was prevented, by very shady people, from reaching the number one spot . One MP stood up in the House of Commons and seriously suggested that the band be hung from Traitors Gate. Local councils clambered to ban the group from playing, yet the record sold by the truckload.

It well and truly deserves a place in any list which represents the previous decades of music.

And as for another track which captures perfectly the state of the nation at a given moment in time , then look no further than Ghost Town.


My point is that the list is dead obvious and safe.

Yeah, God Save The Queen had an impact at the time, and Ghost Town 'captured a mood' .....there are many good (some great) songs on the list...but if I'd been running a music mag for 6 decades and I wanted 20 tunes that represented all that time and effort, then that list wouldn't come close to doing it...

It's all very comfortable and obvious.....

The Beatles 'A Day in the Life' is so obvious.....Like a Rolling Stone by Dylan, The Ronettes 'Be my Baby' ......all good, but so what?

Actually the only song on their I think represents any thought outside of bland is Madonna's Like A Prayer.

I think I'll head back to Dan's musical ground zero article.....that took some risks....


thank you,

Very Happy
It fells like I've never been away Wink

The funny thing is I really,really liked the Specials
30 years ago and I really,really like the Specials now,
crazy I know.
I really,really like going to gigs meeting people and
having a laugh and enjoying myself.
If other people don't that's fine by me.
I don't buy much merchandise; downloads,live cd,s but if
other people do that is also fine by me,good luck
to them.We all have a choice.
Young or old,people who have followed the band for 30 years plus or
others who have followed the band for 30 weeks.
It's a FANS forum. Maybe I'm wrong

Hi all...haven't posted for a while (divorce / finding a new place /moving in etc) but have just had broadband installed in my new home so thought I'd post following the Hyde Park Gig.

Anyone who has a basic appreciation of music and culture has a respect for The Specials regardless of if you were around at the time .

I have been fascinated to watch a new generation appreciate the contribution of The Specials to British Music.....and I don't think that would have necessarily happened if it wasn't for the various tours and festivals.

I am certainly not gonna lose sleep over his (NME) comments.

Very Happy

the nme is a kiddies fan mag now. my son used to get it but stopped aged 13. they still liked oasis in about 2005. i wouldn't mind em not liking the specials if they were really cutting edge and only dealt in really obscure music by young people but like much of the music establishment they are completely confused these days and only ever go with new stuff people at promo companies have worked loads on promoting.
