Woke up today feeling great and got into a Jamaican groove. I spent a bit of time down there and saw many reggae concerts in Negril.. Loved it there the island is so smooth and you can't help but slow down and chill.
Never like Reggae until I went to Jamaica and heard their music in context of the island ways. Now everytime I heard Reggae I go into an instant mellow groove.
Hope to get back down there this Christmas. My friends and I are planning another excursion in time for New Year's Eve.
The song "I Can See Clearly Now" is a particular song that pops my mood instantly in an upward motion. You can't help but sing along and dance to it too.
My favorite version is Bob Marley's. Love Johnny Nash's cover too and also Jimmy Cliff's. Bob's has more depth and emotion to me. But really I love them all.
I was lucky to be able to see Jimmy perform here in Detroit awhile back with my best bud Robin. Jimmy played the Majestic Theater on Woodward in Detroit. Jimmy had a kick butt band and I was so close to the stage. The music was unforgettable. And the percussion was to die for.
