A song that you’ve listened to for years & have just recently begun to appreciate
“A Message To You, Rudy” / The Specials (1979)
Newbury Comics (an absolutely fabulous store up in Maine that I love and miss dearly) put out a duo of complication CDs in the early 2000s that I used to the play in heavy rotation. One of them contained the song “A Message To You, Rudy” as covered by The Specials. I have heard the song over and over again but only started to appreciate it over the last year or so. Husband took up the saxophone at that time and a result of this has been that I now listen to horns in songs. It’s not a purposeful thing, just a thing. The horns in this song are great and Husband’s old band used to cover it regularly as part of their set.
