I really like the house band at CSS reggae version of Johnny B Goode. When I got home I realized that Peter Tosh had actually had a hit with that song back in the day. I downloaded a couple of albums by Peter Tosh and really love his version of it. Also fantastic is Peter Tosh version of Get up Stand up. Its got a fantastic, slower groove than the Bob Marley version.
Heard the CTI steel drum band play this one... didn't much care for it when I first heard it - but it's grown on me. Now every time I YouTube the tune, takes me back to the evening show at CTI. Ya mon! Reggae Version (Careless Whisper) - YouTube
Three Little Birds... I didn't have that much of a connection until my first trip, with my current husband, my first vacation after my previous husband had died, I buried him at Arlington National Cemetery and that trip was the most restorative I had ever had in my life. Apparently I sat up in bed in the middle of the night and in full voice sang Three Little Birds. I connect it so much with that trip and with our two since.
Capt ANk......Booty Man is by far one of my favorite songs to transport myself to JA!!!! First heard Booty Man on the Sandals CAT in 2008. We renewed our VOWS this past October at CSA and played Booty Man after the ceremony.....everyone stopped in their tracks because of the song. Now I play this song once a day on my phone and everytime I go to the bar (they hate me when they see me putting money in the music box)!!!!!
