Alpha Blondy - Wish You Were Here



Alpha Blondy is an African legend who has been churning out hit after hit over a career that has spanned many decades. "Wish You Were Here" is a hit anyone who prefers any genre would love. Have a listen...

"So,

So you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Can you tell a green field

Blue skies from pain
A smile from a veil?

From a cold steel rail?
Did they get you to trade

Do you think you can tell?
Hot air for a cool breeze?

Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
A walk on part in the war

Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
For a lead role in a cage?
Swimming in a fish bowl,

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls
The same old fears Wish you were here..."
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?

If you can't fall in love with the song, you will, at the very least, fall in love with his words... coz...


"Cause I've seen lovers
Parading in the park,
And I've seen heartbreaks
I know how it feels to be left in the dark,
And then you're struck by love...
...

What do you do, when the fear of love is chasing you?
All my life, I swear I'd never give love a try,
But when you're struck by love,
What do you do, when the fear of love keep chasing you?
All my life, I said I'll never give love a try
Give love a try..."

We should all give love a try, y'all!

Busy Signal & RC - Dreams Of Brighter Days




This one from Busy Signal and RC comes in the same rhythm as "Concrete Jungle" and even has a similar message. "Dreams of Brighter Days" lets you see into the world that is often ignored, the peace and strength we need to keep moving on every single day. It is a tough world out there... and yet we need not worry because "Jah will provide."

"...As I open my window and glance through my window
I realize there's no turning back
Than to complete life's journey though things get contrary
But got to make it to the top
See, am searching for ah way to survive
Working so hard I know Jah will provide
Both see, Oh am keeping my head high
Mama tell me da limit is da sky..."


Romain Virgo - I Am Rich In Love


Romain Virgo is the underdog who wins the heart of his love. He tells her "I Am Rich in Love" but "I am a pauper." Sweet sounds, charming video, and excellent vibe to score big time with the sweeties. Listen to the song and try some of the lyrics:

"...I am rich in love but financially i'm a pauper, its just you that i'm after
Got lot of love to give you baby..."

But the love isn't just for any girl:

"... mi a take u fi meet mi madda
mi need her fi tell me if a u she prefare
she said di girl me bring one day yah, couldnt cook couldn't clean no she couldn't stay yah
girl a u mi want fi have mi dawta
a u fi wear di ring u have di right feature..."


Tough crowd to please?


Stephen Marley ft. Damian Marley - The Traffic Jam


The sons of Bob Marley, the King of Reggae, Stephen Marley and Damian Marley bring "The Traffic Jam" a work that can only be called "ruggamuffin inna different style." The beat, the sounds, and the rhythm are all in a whole class of their own. You will move it, move it... and won't stop. Then you will rewind.


"... Well we a nuh criminal seh rasta ever righteous
Some bwoy a scope out di ride a we drive and puff
And him jealous a we seh shine and buff
And him jealous a we seh shine and buff
Well from him look inna di car and how di interior plush
And look upon di rims how dem full out and flush
And scope out we jewels him a wonda how much
And him jealous well then prize caan touch (Why)
And him jealous well then prize caan touch (Ragga now!!)..."

Gentleman & Ky-Mani Marley - Simmer Down (Control Your Temper) feat. Marcia Griffiths


You remember Bob Marley's hit, "Simmer Down"? Well here is an even groovier version of the classic by Ky-Mani Marley, Gentleman, and Marcia Griffiths. Try to control yourself once that beat starts picking up... dare!


Glen Washington - Kindness For Weakness



Glen Washington sing's most men's heart out with his "Kindness For Weakness" as he shows the two sides of his love. Great listen for when you're trying to tell her what you just can't bring out.


"I just can't live without you no, no way.
Now many men will try to tell you bad things about me oh baby let them try I
Know one day their lust will die.
And there will be no cause or reason for you to doubt me.
Cause what I feel is real.
The love that I have for you is yours signed and sealed.
Now I'm building my whole wide world around you.
But baby here's what my request from you.

"Baby don't take my kindness for weakness. (Please) don't take my
Sweetness for weakness. No baby don't take my kindness for weakness. No, no
Baby cause our future depends on you. And no one else will do

"And every breath I take, I'll take another one for you. Because I want you in
My life, now baby.
And every song I sing, I'll be singing with feelings about you.
With feelings of love so pure and true.
There is no way I can live my life without you baby.
But this I desire from you...


"...Bridge: I'll do almost anything you ask me to.
Always willing to set aside the tribulations you put me through.
And people will criticize,
That you and me, they don't think that it's right and everything that I do
They are willing and able to publicize.
I got all bets on you and waiting to finally receive my prize.
No matter how men rule our future is growing inside of you.
Baby time is the master
With Jah blessings we will prosper.
I am placing all bets on you."


Linton Kwesi Johnson - Bass Culture


If you haven't heard Linton Kwesi Johnson's "Bass Culture" you are missing out on a sound experience that is both musical and poetic - and that's just the music. Add the lyrics and you get the ultimate experience from a reggae song that is really, really, rare.


Stephen Marley - Pale Moonlight (How many times)


I you don't fall in love with Stephen Marley's sweet song, "Pale Moonlight (How Many Times)" then there's something you're really not getting about the words and the mellow mood beat. This song is reminiscent of his father's love songs. You can hear the eerie resemblance in their voices by listening to "Bob Marley's "Mellow Mood."


"...Do you remember that first night we met?
That was a moment I never will forget
Love was at first sight, and you came walking
through the pale- pale moonlight..."

"...How many times I told you I love you
But now you want say that we are through
What more can I do?
What more can I say to you? Now you're gone..."
