I. Them Belly Full- Bob Marley http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fhxiAHeYs8 I heard this song sampled in Messengers by J. Period and K'naan, they used this as a beat. It's a really cool song.
II. The Gardner- The Tallest Man On Earth http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5DyCIdYfpA I'm pretty sure this song's about killing people and lying, but it's really pretty and I really like it.
III. Lemonade- Coco Rosie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu3EcAHdHlE&ob=av2e A really haunting song. It takes a while to get used to her voice, but when I first heard this song I listened to it on repeat about 5 times.
IV. Wash Away- Joe Purdy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTdCzIduUb4 A really pretty tune, it was on lost, but I heard it for the first time by Joe Purdy at Mile High Music Fest.
V. When The Saints Go Marching In- James Brown http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGVwatv00sY FUNK.FUNK.FUNK. Gotta have that funk. It doesn't get much better than this.
VI. Exhibit C- Jay Electronica http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPRl0LzD_MA A truly sensational young lyricist, Jay Electronica does some really cool word play in this song.
VII. Oyimbo (live)- Femi Kuti http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3VADO7mwnI Fela's son Femi Kuti does some awesome Afro beat here, I love the horn section, awesome groove, and he starts out the song singing do re mi fa and so on. Cool stuff.
That's all for today, I have to go to school. Keep on listening to music and expanding your knowledge. Stephen
