    That's some pretty great Lovers Rock. I had to click on through and hear a few more of their tunes. I like these guys, thanks for hipping me to it!

    There's also a funny video reply by the "father" singing, "So why you gotta call me rude for doing what a dad should do." lol :)

    I'm also really enjoying this song also. :banana



    The one thing I can say about the year I spent in Seattle, that city really turned me onto some good pop music. :aok

    My cover band started doing rude for awhile. At first I thought it was cool that a raggae tinged tune was in the charts again. Seems like its been awhile. Then I quickly realized how derivative and generic the song it. Got old quick.

    Just got back from Jamaica. Went for Bob's 70th Bday. Saw Judy Mowatt, Andrew Tosh and Bunny Wailer amongst others. Great trip. I dig this and will DL more of their stuff. Been playing a bunch of reggaish stuff lately, not hard core rock steady etc but definite reggae vibe.

    One thing I noticed in Jamaica is most bands seem to have two keyboards and one guitarist where back in the day it may have been reverse. The mix gets less open and clear. Usually one guy can cover keys, and I always like hearing two guitars in reggae, at least two. . lol.

    A band I play with does it, but we throw in 'so lonely' and finish up with 'don't stand so close to me' since a lot of people compared the song to the Police when it came out. I never really got that personally, it just sounded like a generic reggae song to me, but go with the flow, I guess.

    I think that Magic song was great and they were definitely inspired by the Police. IIRC, the main 2 guys who formed the band did it because they wanted to bring that "Police Thing" back. They have a video for another song of theirs that is a Wrapped Around Your Finger homage.

    Derivative of any particular song, but just derivative in these sense that most reggae has that particular beat, in the same sense that a slow blues is derivative of another blues song just because of the format?

    I think two keyboardists and only one guitar would be the best for most cover bands in the USA as well, especially for Top 40 bands.

    That guy is like a really successful producer, I read somewhere. He just threw the band together as a lark, is the story I heard.

    Derivative as in catchy. But otherwise completely unexciting and typical pop format. Just my opinion. It got on my nerves pretty quickly. Kind of like ub40 hits.
