Get up in the morning slaving for bread, sir.
So that every mouth can be fed.
Poor me, the Israelite!
Yah, mon! Sticking with our summer theme today, we goin’ to take you down in a “rubbadub style”—that’s Reggae style.
Don’t be thinkin’ Bob Marley. Obviously, he’s a giant, but we’re goin’ to hit the roots, with the first Reggae song many of us ever heard: Israelites, by Desmond Dekker.
Once you lock onto this beat, it might not let you go until Monday.
Now, someone pointed out that my musical selections, while obviously of the highest quality, seem to range from the 1600s to the 1970s or so. What about something more contemporary?
A fair point, but they just don’t make music like they used to, and get those kids off my lawn!
Just kidding—and to update my profile, I stumbled on this remix of Israelites by Apache Indian (AI). I think it’s a kickin’ remix.
Not to mention that AI starts rapping on the middle-class squeeze: “Me need the rentman check!”
