My Only Ska Post Ever

Soundtrack From The Movie Dance Craze
I’ve never been a big ska fan and I think the genre peaked in the early 80s. So this soundtrack find was cool for me. Dance Craze is like the Urgh! of Ska movies, and has a lot of great live cuts that aren’t available anywhere else. The CD version has some more songs than this vinyl one, but it also doesn’t have any tracks by Madness, and I’d rather have the latter than the former. The tracks are listed in their original track order, which is why the bands are a little spaced out and out of order.
The Specials – Concrete Jungle
The English Beat – Mirror In The Bathroom
Bad Manners – Lip Up Fatty
Madness – Razor Blade Alley
The Selecter – Three Minute Hero
The Bodysnatchers – Easy Life
The English Beat – Big Shot
Madness – One Step Beyond
The English Beat – Ranking Full Stop
The Specials – Man At C&A
The Selecter – Missing Words
Bad Manners – Inner London Violence
Madness – Night Boat To Cairo
The Selecter – Too Much Pressure
The Specials – Nite Klub

    Thanks for the post! I’ve been searching for “Easy Life”, thinking it was a song by The Selecter. Thanks for the reminder that it’s by The Bodysnatchers, also featuring Rhodah Dakkar (sp?). Now, help me find the album!
