You know, “March of The Swivelheads” could be one of The Greatest Songs of All Time.

OR…
It could have one of the greatest Movie Placements of ALL time.
Til this day, I can watch this movie, which is almost as old as I am, and just get absolute joy out of this scene. Partially for the great chase scene… but mostly for the awesome song it took me almost 12 years to track down:

“March of The Swivelheads” by The English Beat.

Masters of 80s Two-Tone, Ska, and New Wave…. their  bigger hit was actually a little song called Mirror in the Bathroom. Perfect example of that blend of New Wave and Ska they’re so great at. And I say it in the present tense, as they are still an active band and touring currently. Kinda kickass, if you ask me.

Download the awesomeness that I have in my vaults here, and enjoy.
