Not a big Peter Tosh fan, but I've had his version of Walk And Don't Look Back in my head this week.

Fun Fact: Mick Jagger is the most ridiculous human being on earth.

Any of you gays catch this Bob Marley documentary that's been airing a bit recently? It's pretty good. That's all.

One of the guys at The Fort is a big reggae fan so I've been exposed a little more recently. I've been getting into Toots and the Maytals and started to DL some of their catalog, which is fairly extensive. Any suggestions (for specific songs or albums) from the peanut gallery who might be familiar with them? tyia
Ballz: So, I fucking got a BJ for $250 total, and wore a rubber. It sucked, I couldnt even feel it, so i jeckyled onto her tits. She was cute. Not even that far out of my league, it was a waste of $250

Here's a list of tracks to start out on:

54-46
Pressure Drop
Time Tough
Country Roads
Pomps and Pride
Bam - under Byron Lee & the Dragonairres
Sweet and Dandy
Louie Louie
Funky Kingston
Sailing On

Pomps and Pride is probably my favorite.

I grabbed a 9 CD set last night (731 MB) that has many of those songs. Listening to Pomp and Pride as I type this. Good shit, I've enjoyed almost every tune I've heard so far.

Preach Peter Tosh, preach....



As true today as it was 40 years ago. If you teach bullshit, don't act surprised when your country is full of shitheads.

Bros, I've asked you to come at me many times for many things, but I've never asked you to come at me like this....

A Come at Me BRO! Top 5 Dancehall Crossover Tracks

5. Turin Brakes - Angel

Nothing says crossover like a mid 90's english alt rock band covering a Shaggy jawn and then busting into the Joker. This is crossover on 9 levels.



4. UB40 - Red Red Wine

More Brits but this time they are covering a Neil Diamond track. That one little breakdown where he toasts/raps is prolly 90% of the world's introduction to dancehall. Crossover on 8 levels. Come at me bro.



3. Maxi Priest - Wild World

Not sure if he is a Brit or not, but this is a cover. I'm not even sure there is any dancehall in here but Maxi Priest gets an odd amount of cred for a guy who I associate more with bland R&B pop. Crossover on 5 levels.



2. Matisyahu - King without a Crown

He is definitely not from England. An orthodox jew from BK toasting on a reggae lite beat? How many crossover boxes are we checking here? Hard to say, but he's our representative from the Jack Johnson/311 division of reggae posers. Crossover on 4 levels.



1. Seeed - Waterpumpee

Full disclosure, I <3 the doctor's darling riddim so much that some German dudes can use it to top my COME AT ME BRO CROSSOVER DANCEHALL RANKINGS! Crossover is on 888 levels here.



Here's a better track on that beat:
