    Default What's your favorite Reggae song?

    Starting to get too excited for our 4th trip to CSA in May! Bringing along my parents this time (you know who you are!)

    Trying to put together an awesome Reggae playlist for this trip and need some help! We already have our favorite songs that remind us of Jamaica... so what about YOU? What's one song that instantly takes you back to Jamaica? What's on your Jamaica playlist?

    Besides Bob Marley and The Wailers, I'm a big fan of Third World. "Now That We Found Love" and "Try Jah Love" being a couple of faves. Also Ernest Ranglin is an amazing guitarist for some almost jazz like reggae. Look for "Surfin" by him.

    I have to say though my all time favorite is "Is This Love" by Bob Marley. I walked down the aisle to this song when my husband and I got married at CSS. Makes me smile each and every time I hear it.

    So I've been listening to these songs to get me ready for our trip!!

    We haven't officially booked yet, STILL stuck between CSS and CTI.

    BUT now I can't wait to go there and DANCE!!!
    Is there anywhere at either CSA or CTI that'll have reggae music playing in the night time to go dancing?

    Dandy Livingstone - Rudy, a Message to You
    Lee Perry - When Knotty Came
    Lee Perry - Kung Fu Man
    Soul Sister - Wreck a Buddy
    King Tubby - Roots of Dub
    King Tubby - Dub You Can Feel
    Jimmy Cliff - Give The People What They Want
    Jimmy Cliff - Wonderful World, Beautiful People
    Toots and the Maytals - Reggae Got Soul
    Jacob Miller - Peace Treaty
    The Congos - Fisherman
    The Congos - Congoman
    The Congos - Ark of the Covenant
    Gregory Isaacs - A Riot
    Burning Spear - My Roots

    Every one of these songs, without exception, will just make you feel good the more you listen to them. Most should be able to be found on YouTube or if you want to purchase, Amazon. I'm listening to a playlist right now that includes all of these and over a thousand other amazing reggae songs.
