I know it's been discussed before, but name me some reggae songs that are about food. I'm working on a documentary series about West Indian culture, and need a bit of music that is specifically about food.
"Roast Fish And Cornbread" and "Favourite Dish" by Lee Perry are out, since they're too weird for this particular audience.
"Rice And Peas" by Roman Stewart is an obvious one, but a bit too somber.
Gotta have Early B's Sunday dish. he even explains how he cooks his fish dish and also make 'chicken back tastes like duck' - lyrics pretty intelligible to a non-specialist audience too - a wicked tune, full a vibes
