• 1978 tarihli this year's model albümünden pek hoş bir elvis costello şarkısı.
  • end transmission' dan bir snapcase parcasi.

    the year is 2071
    one drum by law has just begun the beat
    you'll be informed on what you'll be
    and correspond if you want to live
    everywhere people move to the cadence of just one drum
    time is here, of what was feared
    synchronized by the prosperous ones
    working class caste system
    adjust, pushed down, down, down
    executive hands are red if you want to live
    people move to the beat of just one drum
  • nba tv de yayınlanan bir spor programı. dün gece iki saat boyunca lebron james konuşuldu. lebron james'in lise koçundan, finans danışmanına herkes ne bildiyse anlattı yok hep takımını düşünürmüş yok yaşına göre çok olgunmuş felan bir kişi de çıkıp "bunun sarhoşluğu çok pistir, 10 yaşına kadar altına işedi, ortaokuldaki kız arkadaşı şimdi kendini satıyor" gibi şeyler demedi. demek programın formatı o şekilde değil.
  • sözlerini de yazayım tam olsun:

    we're all going on a summer holiday
    vigilante's coming out to follow me.
    heard somebody say they're out to collar me.
    anybody wanna swallow me?

    it takes two to tumble. it takes two to tango.
    speak up; don't mumble if you're in the combo.

    on the beat, on the beat.
    till a man comes along and he says,
    'have you been a good boy, never played with your toy?
    though you never enjoy, such pleasure to employ.'

    see your friends in the state their in.
    see your friends getting under their skin.
    see your friends getting taken in.

    well, if you only knew the things you do to me.
    i'd do anything to confuse the enemy.
    there's only one thing wrong with you befriending me.
    take it easy. i think you're bending me.

    i've been a bad boy with the standard leader.
    my neighbor's revving up his vauxhall viva.

    on the beat, on the upbeat.
    till a man comes along and he says,
    'have you been a good boy, never played with your toy?
    though you never enjoy, such pleasure to employ.'

    see your friends walking down the street.
    see your friends never quite complete.
    see your friends getting under their feet.

    oh, i don't want to disease you,
    but i'm no good with machinery.
    oh, i don't wanna freeze you.
    stop looking at the scen'ry.
    i keep thinking about your mother.
    oh, i don't wanna lick them.
    i don't wanna be a lover.
    i just wanna be your victim.
    i don't go out much at night.
    i don't go out much at all.
    did you think you were the only one
    who was waiting for a call

    on the beat, on the upbeat.
    till a man comes along and he says,
    'have you been a good boy, never played with your toy?
    though you never enjoy, such pleasure to employ.'

    see your friends treat me like a stranger.
    see your friends despite all the arrangements.
    see your friends nothing here has changed.
    just the beat.

  • zamanında specials ve madness'ın gölgesinde kalmalarına rağmen, kanımca en iyi two tone albümünü çıkarmış nadide ingiliz ska grubu.

    80 çıkışlı debut albümleri i just can't stop it sadece en iyi 2. dalga ska albümü değil, tüm 80'lerin en iyi albümlerinden biridir. bu albümü izleyen 81 çıkışlı wha'ppen ve 82 çıkışlı special beat service de sevenlerini en ufak bir hayal kırıklığına uğratmamıştır.

    ingiltere'de the beat olarak kurulmuş olmalarına rağmen, aynı isimli amerikan power pop grubu ile karıştırılmamak için zaman içinde bu ismi alan grup, zannediyorum en çok mirror in the bathroom adlı klasikleriyle hatırlanır.
