I’ve put together a short list of throwback reggae melodies. From your favorite feel good track, to the more obscure sounds your parents probably listened to-all sung by womyn or celebrating the womyn in some way or another. Hope you enjoy!

Marcia Griffiths- “Feel Like Jumping”

Mostly known for her hit “Electric Boogie (The Electric Slide),” Marcia Griffiths is considered to be “the queen of reggae.” Check out “Feel Like Jumping,” a song that highlights the ska sounds of the 1970’s.

Bob Marley & The Wailers- “No Woman No Cry”

How could we compile a reggae list without including the legendary Bob Marley and his singing counterparts, The Wailers. On “No Woman No Cry,” the singers speak to the pains of harsh ghetto life in a Jamaica.


Beres Hammond- “Pride and Joy”

On “Pride and Joy,” Hammond croons endearingly to his lover.

Gyptian- “Beautiful Lady”

This is the kind of track you never tire listening to.

Wayne Wonder- “No Letting Go”

On the track, Wonder croons about his special siren who he can’t imagine life without.
