The Specials, "Ghost Town (Extended)"

The Specials, "Ghost Town (Extended)": For Halloween, we whisk you away with this appropriately creepy freak show classic from the English ska revival heroes. Group svengali Jerry Dammers loads in so many horror movie atmospherics around the reggae groove that you may not even notice Terry Hall's lyrics detailing violence and despair. The Specials' brilliance lay in finding so much fun in their blighted surroundings. – Nick Dedina, Google Play
