Graduate - Elvis Should Play Ska

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Graduate was not a ska band. They released only one album in 1980 before becoming Tears For Fears. This is the only ska song that either Graduate or Tears For Fears recorded. This single was in response to Elvis Costello complaining about how everybody seemed to be hopping on the ska bandwagon and nobody cared much for his sound at that time.

Excellent post dear blogger, but I think you'd add something about ska punk, the characteristics of this genre vary, due to the fusion of contrasting genres. The more punk-influenced style often features faster tempos, guitar distortion, on beat punk rock-style interludes (usually the chorus), and punk-style vocals and would be nice if you can attach some information and links about this bands too. 23jj

They should play more ska songs, because this one is really good. Definitely they had enough talent to be succesful in this branch ofthe music.
