23min of Ska : Stop Me if You’ve Heard This

23skaNegativeHere’s a group of songs you just might recognize. Yeah, there’s a slight twist on them as you can tell as soon as you start listening. OK, yeah, they’re all covers, you get that right? To be fair the first one isn’t expressly billed as a cover, and the lyrics might not be an accurate translation, but you know that song. Hell, even fans on their own YouTube videos call them out on the similarity. This episode has been a journey to discover songs for and put together, hope you all enjoy.
