Night Music: The Specials, “Friday Night, Saturday Morning”

I was a great fan of Karel Reisz’s film, Friday Night, Saturday Morning, a prime example of English kitchen-sink drama. The movie was based on a novel by a writer named Alan Sillitoe, who also wrote the excellent Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner.

I was also a great fan of the Specials, who in this case do a fine job echoing Sillitoe’s themes, with a song that makes my mouth feel cottony every time I hear it. With no regrets.
