Songs about Sound System

Postby adrians wall » Wed Sep 06, 2017 1:40 am

Just wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of some tunes that are all about sound system. Not looking for tunes about the lawn or dancehall, after tunes specifically about Sound System. Here are some examples:

Michael Palmer - String up the Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzhVoYfzPio
YT - Sound System Culture - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKMCcXB-3WE
Steel Pulse - Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgKtSqCHzf4
Iration Steppas - Sound System DNA - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MqSP8Nthvo
Ines Pardo - Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oi8eRKP7Bfo
Jacko & Danman - Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFqTPdcCxIY
Barry Isaac - Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8NJeeIQlZE
Violinbwoy & Junior Dread - Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daWDOPtkpjM
Brother Culture - Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eywKv6JGq4
Life MC - Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzDJYs1By-A
Sistah Awa - Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AB66QI4ZkII
History Man - Jamaica Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aR8ZuSj8J_E
Prince Liv I Jah - Sound System Kulcha - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-inoJxVKQQA
Home-T-4 - Sound System Man - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZV3uQoFoRE
Original Kose - Sound System - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zFVD8mEhjI
Reality Souljahs - Roots Salute - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wg_qZhnJgy0
Macka B - Dont stop the Sound - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9TUTkIWiH0
Macka B - Carry di Box - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Jly1kM_tc4

Obviously most of these are modern productions, are there many older tunes about Sound System say from the 70's & 80's or it is a more modern phenomenon?

Isn't that a compilation album rather than a specific tune?

Little John - Dancehall Style.

Edit. Not 100% but almost.

What about Little Clarkie - Selector Him Good?

Off on a slight tangent but quite specific part of the system.

Well there are of course about a million "soundboy-killer" tunes.

But apart from that, how about this one?

At first I was going to suggest this one, which is one of my all time favorites,
but I guess it's not about sound system per se, more about him being sought after to
sing on soundsystems:
