    Reggae music

    Anyone a fan of this type of music? We just got back from Jamaica, so of course I am in that mindset, but the past few days I have been listening to XM101, and I really do like this music. The new stuff is really a good, but the classics are just great songs. I really like how a lot of the songs tell a story, and then you find yourself singing it hours later.

    So far the stuff I am used to like Shaggy and UB40 is just not the same as I heard down there.

    This song was just on, and it is one of my favorites:

    Bob Marley "Sun is shining"

    Re: Reggae music

    Haven't listened to Reggae for quite some time. When I did it was Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Black Uhuru, and Eek-A-Mouse

    Re: Reggae music

    Bob Marley is reggae. I can't think of another genre of music where one person so strongly defines and dominates a particular style of music. I love reggae, but what made it even better for me was reading a biography on Marley (I think called A Burning Fire) and books on rastarfianism and Halie Salasie (sp). A lot of reggae songs are based on or about rastarfianism so they make more since with a little background...

    Check out Black Uhuru, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Gregory Isaacs, etc.


    There was one?

    Re: Reggae music

    Bob Marley was a king...

    Get bored some time check out his videos on YouTube.

    "We're jammin', we hope you like jammin', too."

    Or still my favorite lyric from any song,

    "He who fight and run away, live to fight another day..."

    Re: Reggae music

    It was funny when we got on the bus, some punk from Boston who thought he knew everything was in the front row, talking about how Peter Tosh was the greatest reggae singer of all time, the bus driver was like "What?" "No mon, it is Marley." The Boston fool would just not let it go, so the driver made him listen to Bob the entire 2 hr ride, it was great.

    Re: Reggae music

    Hey, I'm jealous you made it to Jamaica.

    I love reggae. If you want to listen to some good contemporary reggae, check out SOJA (Soldiers of Jah Army). Stephen Marley's "Mind Control" album is also good.

    Oh, and XM's The Joint is great. That is one of the main reasons I still have XM.

    Re: Reggae music

    Try listening to Slightly Stoopid they are a reggae/ska type of band. They are really good.

    Re: Reggae music

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, I will check them out. I really love XM101, and have heard that Kingston Town song a few times, really good.

    If you dig the old stuff and like a story you must get this album; The Harder They Come. It's a soundtrack from a 1972 movie of the same name. Most tunes are by Jimmy Cliff. It's almost a Rasta concept album. It's great.

    I also highly recommend Marley's Natty Dread
