‘Ghost Town’ by The Specials was released 30 years ago today.
An eternal classic and one of the best British No.1 singles of them all, it still resonates for me today.
The intro was seared into my brain at a very young age, so it’s perhaps not surprising that it opens ‘Shaun Of The Dead’.
Please be haunted by it all over again…
NB. Wikipedia helpfully informs me that it knocked Michael Jackson’s ‘One Day In Your Life’ off the top spot and was later dethroned by ‘Green Door’ by Shakin’ Stevens. So I guess the reign of biting political songs at the top of the hit parade was shortlived.
