Chris Martin - Pirate of The Caribbean



Chris Martin's "Pirate of The Caribbean" is one smooth melodious ecstasy. From start to finish you will have the flow of the Caribbean going through you... even if you've never been there. The historical throwbacks and references combine with swashbuckling of today to give you an image of how smooth he must be as he  "pillages the villages..."

    "...This is not my village am just visiting
    Am just pillaging the villages
    I see two diamonds that I want
    I know they gonna give it up
    Beautiful girls are my treasure
    Looting their heart is my pleasure...

  ... Yea am a pirate
    Pirate of the Caribbean
    And I'm as sharp as a blade...

   ... Me slicker than Jack Sparrow
    Me rougher than Blackbeard
    A my style dem borrow
    From Henry Morgan days
    Out a Port Royal weh the ship dem dock
    Dem know a trouble from the sail dem block
    Worst when dem see the skull and bone pon dat
    From the gal dem mat
    Man ago launch attack
    Am a pirate...

... Pirate of the Caribbean
    Sail across the seven seas
    My riches goes to infinity
    All these girls are in love with me
    My crew will never switch
    Am the captain and this so..."

Stephen Marley - Made In Africa ft. Wale, The Cast of Fela


Stephen Marley gives us "Made In Africa" which will make you proud of being African - or want to be one. The words touch on each generation from ancient to date and on into the future.

"...Oldest human bones found in Ethiopia...

... Africans were the first builders of civilization...

...Ships that sail to distant places
Robbed us of our rising worlds
History says that you've betrayed us
Talking of the Gods you serve
Hear the rambling in the sky
Tears that our fore fathers cry
And today we're still in chains
Take the shackle from our minds...

...Our children must be taught, of Africa
The science and the art, Africa...

...Educate yourself, Africa
To liberate yourselves, Africa
Keep your heads up high
No more will we cry

Beautiful are thou, Africa
A legend have to bow, Africa..."

Samory I - Rasta Nuh Gangsta



Samory I and "Rasta Nuh Gangsta" is a sweet dub with a mellow mood. But the message is far from it...

... enough said.

Damian Marley - Beautiful ft. Bobby Brown


Damian Marley and Bobby Brown combine to come up with one sweet song. "Beautiful" is beautiful indeed. Have a listen.

 

Jason Mraz - I'm Yours




Jason Mraz is singing about what we all want to do with our lives... BREAK FREE... I'm Yours should be the song we all sing when we are all gunning for that exit... Or should be right about now...

"Well you done done me and you bet
I felt it I tried to be chill but you're so hot I melted...

...Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
We are just one big family And it's our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved...

...So I won't hesitate no more, no more It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short This is our fate, I'm yours...

...I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed
I guess what I been saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue...

...But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm yours
Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find the sky is yours
So please don't please don't please don't
There's no need to complicate 'Cause our time is short
This, oh this, this is our fate, I'm yours..."

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!!)..."
