You know UB40?


Reggae, do or did you ever listen to it?

To me, this music is part of my world, childhood or how you like to call it. I do not even think about it as reggae once I hear it. I hardly listen to music these days but the songs are still in my head. It is as @gertu said You get older and we love the silence and other kind of music more.

Reggae is a music unique to Jamaica they say. As I searched the internet it turns out to be untrue. It has its roots in New Orleans R&B and it's forefather is ska.

I did not know it so I learned something new.

Back to music we are used to listening at.

UB40 (Unemployment Benefit, Form 40) is 40 years old (2018) and turns out to be a reggae band. 😲

Their first single was "Food for Thought" and in 1983 they released the album "Labour of Love". It is an album of reggae cover songs and not their only one.

Red, Red Wine is the song you still hear on the radio stations.

Songtext: Red, red wine

Red, red wine goes to my head
Makes me forget that I still need her so

Red, red wine, it's up to you
All I can do I've done
Memories won't go, memories won't go

Life is fine every time
Thoughts of you leave my head
I was wrong, now I find
Just one thing makes me forget

Red, red wine, stay close to me
Don't let me be alone
It's tearing apart my blue heart

Life is fine every time
Thoughts of you leave my head
I was wrong, now I find
Just one thing makes me forget

Red, red wine, stay close to me
Don't let me be alone
It's tearing apart my blue heart

Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
You keep me rockin' all of the time
Red red wine, you make me feel so grand
I feel a million dollar when you're just in my hand
Red red wine, you make me feel so sad
Any time…

Omg UB40 I’m not a huge fan but in most pubs someone always puts it on the juke box especially red red wine or Kingston town

You won't find a cd of them in my home either. It is one of these songs you will always here on the radio for some reason. Never really thought about them as a reggae band. 💕

Son canciones eternas. Años 70 y 80?? Nunca se desprecian. En la actualidad, en las emisoras donde se coloca música de "las viejitas" siempre la escucharemos.

Sí, estas canciones serán eternas. No creo que después de estos años se escriban mejores canciones. Ahora es todo lo mismo.
