It’s September, the start of a new month. Well, in mid-August, half a month too late, I came across one of those internet challenges. Being a music nut, I’m willing to take my chances with the data mining assholes and participate. For the month of September (plus October 1), I’m going to answer each of these with a blog post. Here’s the challenge:
Day 29: Favorite Reggae Song
I’m tempted to cheat with this one, but fortunately for you I can’t. My favorite reggae song was a reggae version of Simon & Garfunkel’s Cecelia. It was recorded by a band called, if I recall correctly, Funhouse, and I think they were based in Charlottesville, Virginia. I can’t find the audio for it — certainly not due to a failure to search for it — and other reggae versions I’ve found pale in comparison. I could also go with some early Police, such as Roxanne, but no. I’m going to give you a song by a dedicated reggae artist.
We could all use some redemption.
That was cheesy. I take it back.
