JAMAICA’S AWAY

Why, why do I love the music why does it made it dancin’ once it turns once it plays and my feet start to sway.

Jamaica’s Away merupakan salah satu lagu reggae yang diusung oleh grup band Souljah yang menggambarkan root asli dari musik reggae asal Jamaika pada akhir era 60-an. Gaya musik yang mengikuti perkembangan ska dan rocksteady ini menjadi bagian tersendiri dari industri musik.

Bagi saya sendiri, yang menyukai musik dari berbagai aliran, reggae dapat diibaratkan sebagai bulir coklat dalam kopi yang menetralkan rasa pahit dan memberikana aroma berbeda. Menyukai musik reggae bukan berarti harus memiliki rambut gimbal atau bergaya hidup seperti seorang rasta. Mari berselera dalam musik.

Jamaica’s away, away from the land that i am livin’
Away from the beach that got me goin’
Away from the sound that came out within

Jamaica’s away, and my love is somewhere between
To seek love is never comin’
And the music really got me missin

Why, why do i love the music
Why does it made it dancin’
Once it turns once it plays and my feet start to sway

Why, why people think i’m crazy
Why do they say i’m losin’ my way
It got me good got my mood not forgetting my root

Oh…it’s in my ear…
Oh…it’s all that i hear…

Listen to the raindrops falling from the top
My heart are still with the jamaica’s appeal.
So calling reggae music the beat is in my hand
My soul flyin’ up instead….

As I walk in the road I remember what they told me,
The song i singin’ and the rhythm i swingin’,
People are praying for the gold were stolen,
But happy for what we’re leavin’
