    Tunes or artists that did it BIG - you know the ones either a ground breaking track/album or an Icon like Bob....
    Drop them here

    I'm gonna start with Shabba in the UK this made the Top Ten and was played on the radio & even made Top of The Pops (a weekly televised chart show that EVERYBODY watched), unheard of then for a Dancehall artist. This track is older than me and yet still sounds good - as does most of Shabba's stuff tbh.


    a DJ dropped THESE ^ a couple of weeks back at a blues, crowd went insane about fifty chics doing the old school slow bogle, horns going,gas cans burning, dudes banging cans on the wall

    'girl Flex, time to have sex, look how long you have the ruwd bwoi a sweat'
    'X ammount of lovin hard core'

    one of the sexiest tunes ever.... hard back grind time-that grab a gal vibe ;D

    Dennis Brown, where to start, he has a big collection of solid reggae hits.
    One of the few to make it into the UK mainstream charts with "Money in My Pocket", but it his more conscious music that I believe made him one of the 'Greats'

    this and "Caught you in a Lie" are probably the two finest examples of British lovers. Who doesn't know EVERY damn word?

    I'm not too keen on that tune. (You like my British talk? "not too keen") That's the problem there. Just cuz I won't, doesn't mean you can't elect it into the Hall.
