About 25 years ago I was given a Reggae mix tape, that mix tape went every where with us, in the car, round at someones house party etc etc. I still have it and have enjoyed listening to it on a regular basis. The tape is starting to wear a little thin after all this time and the sound quality was never great to begin with.
I have managed to locate a few of the songs, the most recent addition to my collection from the mix tape being Trevor Hartley – This Must Be Love.
However there are two songs in particular that I can't figure out the titles of and I'm not quite sure who the artists are, I'm hoping that someone on here might be able to help.
I have some lyrics from each song. As I said earlier, they are from at least 25 years ago so it might be that your mum or dad would know them
Song 1 starts:
She got to be ready yes to come and have a party
If you know the girls them not nice just line them up and have a party
Jeanette is my lover dont you see what I mean
I want to be the king and she be my queen
cos baby girl I want to put your hand in mine
and lets take love one at a time, now
If you know the girls them not nice just line them up and have a party (this line repeated many times throughout the song)
Song 2 starts:
I throw the raggamuffin irie in the party
make the people them feel so irie
Sharron a come and shake off all Audrey
Audrey a come and shake off all Suzy
Suzy a come and shake off all Beverley
They all of them a gather in a one posse
Come a dancehall just to listen to me, me ball
Any help on either song would be gratefully received, thanks for reading.
