Default favorite reggae song

so, you read the title, get crackin. and be sure to say a little blurb about why ya like the song.

my favorite has gotta be it was written by damien marley. awesome beat, sick lyrics, and it's reminiscent of his father's music whithout being a knock off. i love the contrast between the really sharp, powderful beats and the more melodic tone and rhythm he takes on when he's singing/talking.

so lets hear some of your faves.

hmm, clash stuff, alot of it has reggae influences, but i dunno if any on the reggae undertones are strong enough for the song to actually be considered reggae. on a tangent, which song by the clash would you say has the strongest reggae feel to it?

Mine would probably be Hold me tight by Johnny Nash. Because...... it makes me jiggle... and I just love to hear the words "fussin and a fightin." Such fun! The harmonies sound pretty on the no lyrics bit too (does no lyrics bit make sense??).

If we're talking The Clash then I'd say Revolution Rock could easily be classed as reggae.

The Clash did LOADS of reggae songs on their later albums especially Sandinistas , mostly produced by reggae producer Mikey Dread recorded at Lee Scratch Perry`s studio in Jamaica yet people only really seem to take notice of their debut album & London Calling.

In fact here`s a list of them

Police & Thieves
Bankrobber
White Man In Hammersmith Palais
Armagideon Time
Pressure Drop
Rudie Can`t Fail
Revolution Rock
Junco Partner
Rebel Waltz
The Crooked Beat
One More Time/One More Dub
Lets Go Crazy
If Music Could Talk
The Equalizer
Broadway
Charlie Don`t Surf
Version City
Living In Fame
Version Pardner
Car Jamming
Ghetto Defendant
Innoculated City

And yes I did listen to the whole of Sandinistas to get most of that list.
