1. Heart of the Congos - The Congos
Day 01 - My favorite song

People who added this item 29  Average listal rating (19 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
2. Natty Dread - Bob Marley & The Wailers
Day 02 - The first song I heard




Note: I was born at home and right after I "came" out, my father put this LP on. He hoped I won't let my mother cry when I would grow up... That didn't work so well but Reggae has thus been part of my life from the very 1st moment (literally).

16. Totally Krossed Out - Kriss Kross
Day 16 - A song that I used to love but now hate




Note: When I was a kid, I thought this song was awesome. Of course, it now looks rather ridiculous. Actually, the tune is still catchy, don't you think?

21. Stream - Twarres
Day 21 - A song that I listen to when I'm sad




Note: You may wonder what kind of language is this. It is a Dutch band but they don't sing in Dutch. They sing actually in West Frisian, a dialect spoken by about 500 000 people in the Netherlands.

26. ...And Justice for All - Metallica
Day 26 - My favorite song from Guitar Hero




Note: This song itself is pretty cool but it is just totally awesome to play on Guitar Hero. I finished it a couple of times in "Hard" but I usually mess it up at the end. The first time, I took me 3 months of daily training to nail it (!).

27. Liberation Transmission - Lostprophets
Day 27 - A song my step-son (Nick) can sing pitch perfect on Guitar Hero World Tour

28. Proverbial Reggae - Gladiators
Day 28 - A song that changed my music taste in some way




Note: Back then, I was interested in Reggae but, beside Bob Marley, I didn't know much about this music genre. Then, I saw those guys in concert, heard this song live and I was hooked for the rest of my life.

People who added this item 129  Average listal rating (86 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
29. Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden
Day 29 - A song from my childhood




Note: I'm maybe now a Reggae boy but as a kid I definitely had some different musical taste. When I was 12 years old and started to get interested into music, the first genre that caught my interest was actually heavy metal - hard rock. I listened to different bands and one of my favorite was Iron Maiden.

30. Reggae Max - Garnett Silk
Day 30 - My favorite song from the last 6 months




Note: I always loved Silk's voice but I never found his songs really impressive until I recently found this tune which just blew my mind.

Wow, most of these I've never heard before! Can't really listen to them now, so I'll be back later to do so. I like that you made your own version...nicely done!

Wow, I would've forgotten Guano Apes ever existed were it not for this list. I received a two track single promotional cd of theirs with an issue of Alternative Press magazine once, way back in the day.

As the giraffe said, lots of stuff I'm not familiar with at all, and there's quite a lot of distance between our musical preferences. But I applaud you for a list well done!
