Madness - Baggy Trousers (Top Of The Pops) (1980) (HD)

As this one will never be aired again by the Beeb because of their crazy policy on not showing old TOTP episodes that featured DLT as the host, then I thought I'd upload it from an old VHS tape I found it on.

The quality turned out pretty good I reckon considering it is from an old VHS tape and I've cleaned it up, sharpened it up and extended it to the full length audio track, as for me this vintage performance of "Baggy trousers" by Madness on TOTP needed to be preserved.

"Baggy Trousers" is a song by English ska/pop band Madness from their 1980 album Absolutely. It was written by lead singer Graham "Suggs" McPherson and guitarist Chris Foreman, and reminisces about school days. (Mike Barson also received a writing credit in error, the correct McPherson/Foreman credit being used for subsequent releases). The band first began performing the song at live shows in April 1980.

It was released as a single on September 5, 1980 and spent 20 weeks in UK charts, reaching a high of #3. It was the 11th best-selling single of 1980 in the UK.
