Bonus! Song o' the Day: SKAugust

Save Ferris, "Come On Eileen" from It Means Everything (The Last Angry Rude Boy)

Skammentary: I have ever lamented the fact that "Come on Eileen," a cover of the Dexy's Midnight Runners' hit, was Save Ferris's biggest hit, bigger than any of their original songs, but that's just the way things were back in the Summer of Ska. "Come on Eileen" is another outstanding example to the venerable ska-punk tradition of ska covers of 1980s pop songs.
