Have you ever heard a Ska song that is sad? I mean even "Everything Sucks" by Reel Big fish makes me feel happy.

That's really sad to hear. I went to live ska last night, and honestly it's one of the few types of music I personally deem to be worth seeing live. Entire crowds of people being friendly and happy instead of trying to look cool, every single time.

Also more on topic I guess Ghost Town is close to being sad, but now I think about it I feel joy every time I put it on. Fuck me ska is so good.

Man I don't even like classifying music by genre. It's all music, one way or the other.

sorry I overlooked this, wasn't sure if modern ska even counts as ska any more.

Well if we're talking ska revival I can understand it being difficult to find. The majority of that is upbeat skanking music.

I'm hard pressed to find one.

Skyscaper by Streetlight Manifesto. It's a cover so it wouldn't really count.

This song and that one Specials album are good, the rest of ska is pretty annoying.

Probably. I'll check them out. Up until now I've not had much reason to. I litrally don't know anything about them, if they're a band or a genre. Every time I've heard the name it's been associated with some furry thing but it was pretty close minded of me.

This one isn't terribly sad. It's about one of the band members watching this guy getting his ass kicked in a fight and how all the people there were just watching and not doing anything. He struggles to determine if he should step in or just not give a fuck.

It seems I'm the only one who hasn't heard a sad Ska song before this thread.

Don't Speak by No Doubt is kind of sad I guess. I don't know much about ska music.

Though No Doubt has done Ska music, i don't think that particular song is ska.

Well, I admittedly don't know much about the genre. It's hard to get a sad sound out of horns I guess.

I'm not sure I could ever take Ska seriously enough to be saddened by it.

They are a ska band that ventures out to build their own unique style out of a blend of various influences. Their main influences like The Beat and Madness were the same way. Everything doesn't have to be pure to the confines of a genre. Thats what kills great music.

Ok, so grumpy old black guys can get sad horn sounds. Ska seems more like an upper middle class pretentious genre anyway. I base that on nothing.

You sure do base that on nothing, why even write it? Ska is for everybody, that's literally the point

Maybe 'Red Red Wine' by UB40.

It's about a man who finds that drinking red wine is the only way to forget his past troubles.
