"Mirror in the Bathroom" was the first single from the Beat's 1980 debut album, I Just Can't Stop It. The 2 Tone ska band were called The English Beat in the U.S., because there already was a band playing at the time known as The Beat here. With all this talk about GOP reassment and looking in the mirror I decided to forgo "Stand Down Margaret" tonight and go with "Mirror" instead. As a dj I embraced the influence from Jamaica on alternative music in the late 70s and early 80s. Anyone recall any other trends from overseas that influenced pop music in the U.S. and U.K.?
