i understand that reggae is mostly about political views and im not knocking that but aargh theres just something i dont like about it and its pissing me off trying to figure out why everytime i hear a reggae song i feel disgusted... maybe its because people around here bump it outta there rides way too much? maybe its cause my ex loved it? maybe its cause... i dunno but im gonna find out

Beenie Man is actually considered "Dance Hall" rather than true reggae. And dance hall and 'rap' are pretty similar in styles.

I agree with WW that most people's only experience in the genre of reggae music is Bob Marley & The Wailers. But those same people listen and know of only a small portion of Bob's music.

Here's usually the only songs the 'average' perosn knows about Bob

Jammin

No Woman No Cry

Could you be Loved

Buffalo Soldier

Basically what is on the Legend album

 

But his musical archive is incredible. From some of the early stuff with the Wailers where it didn't sound like Reggae at all.

 

Dancehall is kinda like combining Reggae beats spinning a little faster and rap music , singing in the same style a rapper would rap over a beat. Dancehall is usually played in clubs more so than the typically laid back grooves of reggae.

You'll hear dancehall in a club. You'll dance to it and do things that might be illegal if you were outside. I like dancehall...good times.

Guest bug

i love reggae. yes dancehall is an old form of reggae. sort of like soul and funk being the precurser to hip hop. dancehall was the popular music played on jamaica in the 50s and 60s. it influenced other styles like rocksteady, ska, then reggae. reggae was the last style of these to come about. i prefer all the old reggae artists, i really don't like the new stuff much. willy wonka has an alright list there, maybe i would add King Tubby or Burning Spear.

Sorry Bug, but reggae was the original. Dancehall is the newest and is derived from reggae and rap. Dancehall wasn't even around in the 50's.
