Name That Chune / Song I.D.

Postby Prince Duppy » Thu Jun 26, 2014 9:27 pm

I've had a song in my head all week that I just can't place.

It's a three-part harmony roots tune with the line "better must come" repeated every other line of the verses . . . No, it's not the Delroy Wilson tune or a cover of it. In my head, it sounds more like a Studio One joint, though that's just a guess.

Not sure where I heard it; probably Mick Sleeper's podcast or DJ Benja's.

Any ideas?

Thanks, but that's still a version of the same Delroy Wilson tune, right? I'm thinking of a completely different song, just with that same line in it.

The chord progression and melody is a bit similar to "The Wrong Thing" by the Congos, but that hardly narrows it down . . .

Man, that's not it either.

Good song, though. I've never heard it.

Thanks Ranking, but that ain't it either.

Man, I wasn't expecting this to be such a head-scratcher.

Found it!

Keithis — "Cost of Living."

A beautiful Black Ark track that I found on Mr Sleeper's podcast.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. This was a toughie.

Now if only I can find that original female vocal behind Prince Far I's "You I Love And Not Another" I'll be a truly happy man.
