Funky people

In July 1986 we happened to know one of those fantastic 80’s songs where not everybody would have bet for success, but after 30 years I am sure that many many people still remember this song with great pleasure. The group who sang it was quite weird; the singer had weird pants and,

Their own song

Every single one of us got his own song, just like UB40, who used to sing… our own song. To be honest, in july 86 they had a couple of songs, because also “Rat in mi (not “my”) kitchen” was quite famous, but it’s ok. Oh, I hope that these are the real UB40,
