2. Jimmy Cliff - " The Harder They Come " - The Harder They Come
This track is a Reggae Classic at its finest. Covered by Jerry Garcia and many other great musicians, this song was written for purpose of hope and strength in a time were there was much oppression.
New Orleans greatest modern jazz heroes named their only Album from Astral Project after this tune.
Such a fast and happy song for a sunny day in the woods, on a hike, or just sitting around smiling.
5. Lettuce w/ Fred Wesley - "Superfred" - Outta Here
From the guitar to the drums to the funkiest Trombone player alive, this jam will get you dancin' all through the night!
These guys are great live and this one of those anthems that these guys belt out. It hits hard. Though the lyrics may be as simple as it gets, It has truth and passion that not every song out there today has.
By far one of the most influential jazz bands on today's new scene. These guys are crushing and in my opinon this is the tune that started it all. With this song don't think its all over during the break near the end. Remember, rests are notes too.
There's something about this song that gave me chills. The entire album is incredible.
9. Elvis Perkins In Dearland - " Shampoo " - Elvis Perkins In Dearland
This artist is captivating, has his own sound, and his lyrics are one of a kind. I've been listening to this song for many years and it never gets old.
10. James Brown - " Lets Go Get Stoned " - James Brown The Singles Vol 4: 1966-1967
That does it, the title of this track says it all.
