It’s New Year’s Eve and this is a great rocking reggae party song courtesy of Freddie McKay. We go dance this festival.
It’s time for New Year’s resolutions – are you ready for your own personal revolution? Ziggy Marley is, from his recent “Wild and Free” album, this song is a contemporary classic. Who got the power? I do.
Not exactly a reggae song, or song at all, but a meditation by a great reggae poet, Linton Kwesi Johnson (LKJ). As we end a hectic year, is there ever a moment of soundless calm?
For a change of pace and to liven up your day, if this song doesn’t get your blood flowing, nothing will. It’s “The Ghost”, the classic, phenomenal dub version of “Marcus Garvey” by Burning Spear and one of the greatest dub songs of all times from one of the greatest dub albums of all times “Garvey’s Ghost”. I don’t know how they did it but they did. Listening with a good pair of headphones or speakers is highly recommended. And turn it up!
Same song as yesterday but this time a great remake by The Tamlins, with rockin’ dub goodness following.
Don’t know if you could make a song like this today in the age of cell phones, texting and Facebook, but you get the point – she don’t want to pick up the phone! Oh, what can I do? A classic by The Heptones.
Never feel the breeze so cool like an early Christmas morning, “Hip Hip Hooray” what an Irie Christmas Day! Everything is working in this laid back, wonderful tune courtesy of Freddie McGregor, with a mellow, cool dub finish.
It’s time to get into that holiday mood with “Ding Dong Bell” by the Ethiopians. Have yourself a rockin’ steady Christmas Eve!
To start your holiday week, it’s a catchy tune with a simple message, especially if you want to be on Santa’s nice list, it’s “Honesty the Best Policy” by Tony Tuff, with dub goodness following.
Are you a rebel at midday time? Heavy driving bass line contrast with rising vocals and great lyrics from Bob Marley and the Wailers, with Peter and Bunny backing too. Listen to this uplifting song because if you’re not happy, you must be blue.
