I think you mean The Harder They Come.

That's a great soundtrack, and a great reggae sampler. Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker, the Maytals and more. Get that and listen to it, MTM. You might change your mind on reggae.

But Alright, Fine, you potheads...I'll give reggae a shot. I'll try and find this 'harder they come' - sounds like a poorly titled porno film - and give it a listen.

The movie and soundtrack for Harder They Come are both worthwhile.

Reggae is more than Bob, MTM. You need to expand yourself a bit. I think a lot of roots rock would be up your alley. Burning Spear is another good entry point, especially if you like your music with political/social commentary.

Steel Pulse is good if you can stand the cheesy keyboards. Stepping Out and Roller Skates were always personal faves.

Buju Banton had his fair share of good songs. He actually got better on the first album when he tried to become conscious.

Dub when done well is great, but sometimes ten minutes of echoes and eighth notes can make you want to kill yourself. You need to pick your spots in that sub genre.

I liked a couple of Beenie Man's hits. Sim Simmer and Dude were both enjoyable. He also gets bonus points for using some of the best/most goofball reggae moves in his videos. The croc, butterfly, and a couple of other of those backup dancer moves are awesome. I think Sean Paul also breaks those out.

I remember working one summer in a very racially/socially/muscially awkward print shop. A lot of Ogie's people from the neighborhood, Bacon's people, a few hard core ravers, and myself. A lot of fighting over the dial. The only station we could ever agree on was WERS when the Rockers reggae show came on.

Never really thought of him as reggae, but I enjoy Eek-a-mouse. That is my answer to you.

I saw Passafire last night at The Wailers concert. They were really good. I'd expand my thoughts but I was really stoned at the time.

Lee Perry - Dreadlocks in Moonlight

Good tune, sounds vaguely like Coming In From the Cold but with a more dubbed out sound on it.

I don't know if dancehall fits this thread, but this is another one of my favorites from back in the day.

Toots and the Maytals... I only know Pressure Drop, Sweet and Dandy, Country Roads, and 54-46. All are kick ass songs, I am wondering if more of his stuff is as good. Anyone got recommendations here?

I have a 2-disc greatest hits of theirs, 40 songs in all (It's called "Time Tough: The Anthology"). I enjoy it. Those songs are pretty representative of their sound. Those are some of my favourites, but I also enjoy others like Monkey Man, Broadway Jungle, Pomps and Pride, Beautiful Woman
