Best "Dancehall" Songs

Postby Ranking Glasses » Mon Sep 03, 2018 2:48 pm

What are the top songs (not DJ tunes) depicting the scene in a dancehall?

I would say:

Rocking of the 5,000 - Badoo
Rock & Come On - Leroy Sibbles
Entertainment - Tristan Palma
Watch How the People Dancing - Kenny Knots

The Frankie Paul tune is a killer. The Carlton Livingstone song is also wicked but it doesn't meet the brief.

Didn't know a couple of those so thanks!

The DJ tunes don't meet the brief so don't count.
