Ska music makes me happy
What I know about ska music is this. It’s the only sort of music that bops me round the kitchen, gets my toes tapping, my heart skipping, my face smiling. I’ve got loads of Trojan CD compilations, see The Skatalites on tour every couple of years, and was really into the two-tone explosion back in the 80s. When I found out there was a ska version of the Coronation Street theme tune, I thought all my birthdays had come at once.
