Lately, though, I’ve been listening to a lot of reggae. Of course, Bob Marley is a must, but I’ve also been spinning songs by Peter Tosh.
And I’ve recently ‘discovered’ Kes the Band. I’m so in love with the two singles: My Love and Tuesday on the Rocks. (I’ve included links to their YouTube music videos later on in this post.)
I’ve also purchased an album called Gyal Season Riddim, which features various reggae artists. It’s soooo good that I’ve literally been listening to it daily for over a week now.
The thing I love about reggae music is that it’s so upbeat and, of course, it reminds you of warm weather. When the weather’s dismal, play reggae music, and you’re transported back to a summer beach party. Reggae always puts a smile on my face.

If it doesn’t make you want to dance, or if it doesn’t make you think of fun summer parties, I’d be very surprised.
Note: Of course everyone’s taste in music is different, so one word of caution is that there’s some sexuality and depiction of alcohol in these videos. If you think you’ll be offended, please don’t watch it.

I really love the song, but the video also really captures the culture. It’s so beautiful, and I love how carefree the flow is.
Here’s the Gyal Season Riddim album that I mentioned at the beginning of this post. If you love reggae, I highly recommend this one. Each track is so fun!
Do you like reggae? What music reminds you of the summer?
