Today we're going to pretend that we have one shot and one chance to impress you with just one Reggae song for today's Throwback Thursday.
Our chune selection is "We Could Belong Together" by Garnet Silk!
Produced by the legendary duo Steely & Clevie, this chune can easily be called a classic, but
rocking the throwback jersey for a minute, the voice of the great Garnett brings out the goose
Originally recorded by Gloria Loring and Carl Anderson in 1986 (titled "Friends & Lovers"),
Steely & Clevie built an uptempo riddim featuring their trademark synthesised horn section at the intro, as well as computerized drum track, the icing on the musical cake is the sweetness of the bass line. The result of this is a totally new chune is authentic 'rock an come een' vibes with only lyrical reminders of the old song.
Add to this, Garnett Silks vocals as well as the backup vocalist (we don't know her name), and we end up with this certified classic.
New York's famed Federation Sound says, it's impossible to over state the importance of Steely & Clevie to Dancehall and Reggae music and we whole-heartedly co-sign. Songs
like this are reminders the masses need to hear!
