Song of the day: Madness- One Step Beyond
In 1964, Prince Buster (a Jamaican ska singer) recorded One Step Beyond as a B-side to a single. This B-side was totally forgotten, until 1979. That was the year Madness released their debut album One Step Beyond, with as single One Step Beyond. The intro of the song was stolen from another Prince Buster song, and Chas Smash (one of the Madness members) recorded the rest. This single was a number 7 hit in the UK and number 76 in the US club chart, and now it’s song of the day! Enjoy
