Reggae Music

Reggae music is sexy , period. Besides Soul music, this is the only kinda of music that can turn me on. I love all the old stuff and the new stuff as well. The last CD I bought was beanie man and Sean Paul. I don't know what it is about reggae music, but uhm ... I'm glad that's it's making it way back 2 the air waves.

Right, if you track back we had an excellent reggae thread, it was started by Feltbluish. Sadly the "search" function isn't working right now.

Reggae is cool! What "it is" 4 me is that its very primitive which makes 4 sensuous sound, sexy beats & great to dance to, make love to, & just escape with.
May the BELLS ring 4 U even when ur not in love. hug kisses

Primitive? It was a new music, often more complex than initial listens would suggest.

yes, me too and UB40 also and our Africanreggae man Alpha Blondie. Aswad I saw life play! WOW! That event is been astralmagic for me! heart rose peace

Reggae is more then sexy. I like reggae because of theyr message and because it is a very spirual-realistic music. Did you know, Moslims likes reggae also.Often I've met ppl from Islam who likes Bob Marley very much and they see you as friend, if you like him too. Music unites. Reggae, the older reggae eye do know, eye think it is also gospel. How do you see that?

UB40 shouldn't get a mention in terms of the reggae greats. shake

As for gospel well Jamaica is primarily a Christian country so the artists often grow up singing in church hence the similarity and religious acts such as Toots & The Maytals.

nod...me too! All his songs and music have something REALLY very special in them...unlike any other...he's a VERY SPECIAL Artist...

Lady saw has cutting and explicit lyrics, and is big in Jamaica. She's also making herself felt in the airwaves as well...

Also,hip-hop has a lot of its roots embedded in reggae as well...

By "primitive" i dont mean an older genre, but "primitive sounding" as in some of the drum beats that tend 2 take on an african flair with sensuality, as well as some of the other "unusual" instruments used that make the unique sound so sexy,sensuous, & different. In other words, i.e. primitive art works... they arent necessarily always"antique", but have "the look" of an antique. anyway, it has a unique, exotic flavor to the rythymn...

I agree 100%.
I especially like dub-reggae. Nice slow grooves with echoes and all kind of strange soundeffects. Mad professor with his dub me crazy series is just great. He also made a remake of massive attacks' protection album. Very dark and hypnotising.
And once again i will defend UB40. They are highly appreciated among older reggea artists and fans because they release material which back in the day did not get the recognition it deserved to have ,see the labour of love projects.
