Well, this was a nice start to the day. Yesterday morning I heard a catchy tune coming from the living room so I popped my head in to see Kylie singing with “The Wiggles” on NickJr. They covered Monkey Man by The Specials and I have to take my hat off to Miss Minogue. Wow.
The song is full of energy, it’s happy, it’s got that “get up and go” feel. My foot was tapping as I listened. Who knew Kylie Minogue could do Ska? Dare I say it, but she does a better job of it than The Specials?

Kylie’s Ska rocks. Did they do this to raise money for UNICEF?
onetrouser – Yeah. Meant to say that. It’s for a good cause!
Kylie does Sja – Monkey Man by the Specials for Nick Jr: http://tinyurl.com/dz97on
The song was originally recorded by Toots & The Maytals before The Specials.
Amy Winehouse has a really good version of this one.

Kylie singing “Monkey Man” is cute but no way is it better than The Specials! By the way, the song was originally done by Jamaican group Toots & The Maytals in 1970. Long live ska!
