Madness – My Girl 2

Madness are one of those quintessential bands of the 80’s.  At university in my first year there was a air band competition during frosh week and our residence put in an entry.  Most other residences were doing the typical rock band but our residence chose the band Madness as the act.  I can still remember our Hall Senior dancing around the stage in his gold pants as he (and other members of the band) pretended to play and sing.  The song they did was Madness and is off the classic “One Step Beyond” album.  We came second overall but were certainly the most original.

On November 13, 2012 Madness released an album named “Oui, Oui, Si Si, Ja Ja, Da Da” and a song off the album caught my attention.  The song is called My Girl 2 and it is the follow up to My Girl from “One Step Beyond” album and it is the song of the week.  If you do not own any Madness songs here are some other songs you should add to your collection…long live Ska.
