Advice: A Message to You Rudy



The Specials: A Message to You Rudy

[purchase]

Stop your messing around
Better think of your future
Time you straighten right out
Creating problems in town

Update: Fellow contributor Divinyl has hooked us up with the original 1967 version of this song, by Dandy Livingston.

I thought about posting the Dandy Livingston version of this...but I have been sloooow the last few days! Great song! :o)

Stop your fooling around
Time you straightened right out
Better think of your future
Else you'll wind up in jail...

Whoever Rudy is, he needs to get his act together right quick, eh?

The Dandy Livingston original is good...but I daresay the Specials one is the more popular version.

You know, I had some sort of gut instinct that this was a cover--in fact I thought I owned the original, but turns out I didn't.

I didn't know this was a cover either. Dang! I hate to think that I was one of the dorky kids rockin' out in my room, thinking that I was listening to an original track, but in fact my parents danced to the same track at their prom.
