Daily YouTube: Remember "The Specials"?

The godfathers of ska in an appearance on Saturday Night Live back in 1980. Back in the day, SNL booked edgy, up-and-coming acts, not Justin friggin' Timberlake.

Oh my God, how I love The Specials!!!! So cool, the music still makes me happy and makes want to dance. I, too, am a married with kids 40-something who would've given her right arm to be able to see clips and video of The Specials so easily available now. They were on SNL on my 15th b-day and it was the best present I could've gotten! Tried to play this vid but, ALAS!, it is no longer available. I keep searching the Net for this clip and have yet to find it. Thank you for mentioning them and allowing me to share a memory!
