The Specials - Ghost Town (Top Of The Pops) (1981) (HD)

It's taken 35 years to finally get hold of a glitch free version of this the 2nd last ever TV performance of The Specials in their original full 7 member line up...

From 1981 it's The Specials on Top Of The Pops with a somewhat bitter-sweet performance of "Ghost Town" in for me what is one of my favourite music video clips of all time...

Sharpened up, full length, glitch free, redubbed and in the best quality you'll have ever seen this one... (with a slightly different ending thrown in)... enjoy.


"Ghost Town" is a 1981 song by the British 2 Tone band The Specials. The song spent three weeks at number one and 10 weeks in total in the top 40 of the UK Singles Chart. Addressing themes of urban decay, deindustrialisation, unemployment and violence in inner cities, the song is remembered for being a hit at the same time as riots were occurring in British cities. Internal tensions within the band were also coming to a head when the single was being recorded, resulting in the song being the last single recorded by the original seven members of the group before splitting up. However, the song was hailed by the contemporary UK music press as a major piece of popular social commentary, and all three of the major UK music magazines of the time awarded "Ghost Town" the accolade of "Single of the Year" for 1981.
