When I shared my love for Amy Winehouse (who I discovered over at one of my favorite web haunts, The Smoking Section),some of my readers asked me for more of my favorite music. Let me warn you bellas, my taste in music is quirky, wide-ranging, and probably not what some of you might expect. Still, I’ll share! Taking a page out of Perez Hilton’s book, I’ll be posting random music videos from time to time.

One of my new faves is The Traffic Jam by Stephen Marley. (Visit his MySpace to hear Mind Control, another fantastic reggae track. I love when he sings). I didn’t have the best interview with his brother Damian, but no worries. I have nuff respect for the talent of the Marley progeny, and I’m seriously looking forward to Stephen’s debut album. Heck, I might even go to the Marley Festival (this year the lineup is excellent)!

This song reminds me of my childhood days, when bubbly, bass-heavy anthems by Tenor Saw, Nicodemus, and Junior Demus were niceing up the dance. It sounds like classic Supercat, so I know my Caribbean people will love this one!

I love the Marleys!!! It took a trip to Jamaica and attending Sumfest (where they were featured), to actually understand their impact as a family and the progeny of Bob Marley. To watch them on stage and the connection they had to the audience was moving. I just saw this video on MTVJams, this morning and the first thing I thought was Supercat!!!

I love the Marleys too...I actually met Damion when i was in Jamaica recording with my group Motherland Soul...several years ago...reggae is a music that has gone largely ignored....anything that brings it to the forefront is great news to me...Respect

Winehouse is the truth! After rocking the bootlegs, I went ahead and ordered a copy of her latest cd. I still want to get "Frank" one day. And then I learned that "Back to Black" would have a US release. *sigh* At least she might tour over here!
