Madness & The Specials
Songs that bring back memories of the early 1980s
Madness and The Specials were by far my two favourite bands when I was a teenager, I actually modelled myself on Graeme MacPherson, better known as Suggs, the lead singer of Madness. This was after our skinhead phase, both myself and Gary went out and got ourselves flattop haircuts. These haircuts are certainly not new, they go back to the 50s I believe, anyway having a head shaped like you could stand on a box on was pretty cool we thought. Mind you, it certainly took a lot of blow drying and gel to get it just right. We also had the sta prest trousers and brogues, not forgetting the flying jacket which we both had pictures painted on the back, you can check the picture out to the left to see what we look like in those days. Anyway, these are some of the songs that bring back so many fond memories of when myself and Gary were at school in the early and mid-80s.
With the help of YouTube I have compiled a collection of Madness videos that they made. Madness videos are well-known for being completely barmy and just completely mad. Graham "Suggs" MacPherson was my absolute hero when I was a kid, I used to model myself on him, or should I say try to. Their videos are absolutely fantastic and should keep you laughing for a while, I hope you enjoy them.
