The tide is high for some ttt redemption!

Hello Hello to all you music lovers of The Hive.

Tuesday means #ttt or #threetunetuesday from @ablaze Basically you just pick and share three tunes on a Tuesday and tell us a wee bit about them. I have included his last ttt post which you can read for further details Mick Flannery for Three Tune Tuesday Week 52

As you can see it is week 52! wow one year old so a massive thank you to @ablaze for starting this awesome musical initiative.

I have only been joining in for a few weeks but have already discovered some amazing music from all round the world, so thank you ttters for showing us your tunes!

It is a bit of fun and you can explore the #ttt tag and find tunes, music and songs that you might not have heard of but actually end up liking.

It feels great to broaden our horizons, don't you think?

HIVE is global and music is global, there are tunes amongst #ttt to suit EVERY musical taste, so let's get rocking!


I fancied me some reggae this week, and it was confirmed this morning when I saw a particular post and listened to some awesome reggae fusion from @riverflows which can listen to in her post World Electronic Dub Reggae Fusion Lovelineess

So let's get this show on the road!

When we think of reggae most people will think of Bob Marley, and we have to include him so this one I am sure you will know and it is one of the last songs he recorded before passing away

Tune 1 Redemption Song - Bob Marley


I like Redemption Song because apart from the powerful lyrics it is just Marley and his acoustic guitar.
To show the lyrics for you I choose to play that version.
It is such an uplifting song about Freedom and emancipation and if you have never listened to it before I urge you to do so.

If you watch or read some of my previous ttt posts then you will know that I like to have a earworm song amongst the three, and why be different this week!
So this one @fionasfavourites is for you

Tune 2 The Tide Is High - The Paragons

Some of you will recognise the song title "The Tide Is High" and think ah yes Blondie, or ah yes Atomic Kitten, but nope it was the Jamaican trio The Paragons who had it first and released in 1966.



I must admit that I happen to love both versions of the tune! What is your favourite version?


To close out this weeks #ttt post I have to include a female singer in this ttt edition on reggae and what fitting way to go back to Bob Marley & The Wailers and have one of the singers from the I-Threes who were the back up singers.

That lady is none other than the amazing Judy Mowatt.

Tune 3 Black Woman - Judy Mowatt



Just listen to her voice, I could do a ttt just on Judy.
Do you know that she was the first female reggae artist to produce her own album?

There we go and I hope that you enjoyed my different tunes for today.

Now it is time for me to visit your #ttt tunes!

PLEASE NOTE: The YouTube videos shared are not owned by me and I am simply sharing great music with the community here on Hive

All classic tunes! I love Redemption Song, I think it's one of the most beautiful songs in the universe. Funny, I never choose to listen to Marley as it can be a bit of a reggae cliche and then I put him on and.. bam! Legend (boom).

Anything under the Trojan label is great. I used to have an awesome double trojan CD mix with some great tunes on it I listened to whilst travelling in SE Asia.

I really love old school reggae, rocksteady always makes me happy. Like this old classic.

Yea Redemption Song really is one of the greatest songs of all time in my opinion. And Marley hehe he is a legend but I know what you mean about the reggae clich part, I think it is a bit like Elvis.

Oh yes Trojan label is the dogs bollocks, that must have been a great mix that you listened to!

Shanty Town is another classic, and old school reggae is just so happy and upbeat I love it too.

So fucken true @riverflows
I hate when someone tries to be cool and thinks every reggae song is Bob Marley.

My husband will NEVER play Bob Marley because that's all he heard while working at the hotels in Jamaica.
When I meet a foreigner who reels of some singers like Gregory Issacs, Peter Tosh, Dennis Brown, Jimmy Cliff, George Nooks, John Holt, Ken Boothe and many other likes; then I can continue a conversation 😏😆

Ahahah Yes I can hold a reggae conversation that's for sure - please add some Dr Alimantado, THe Scientists, Judge Dread, JOhnny Clarke, Iration STeppas, Lee Scratch etc etc. To be honest the only reggae I knew when I left Oz was Peter Tosh (Dad had Bush Doctor, an album I love to this day) and Bob Marley as reggae wasn't a thing here, but when i moved to the UK i got to know it alright! Jamie used to do big reggae sound clashes and had a sound system with his mate in Brighton (talking '90's) and had tons of reggae records - i totally fell in love with both him and the tunes!

Now you're talking.

big reggae sound clashes and had a sound system

Oh.how.I.miss.those.days!!

In my early twenties I attended big reggae festivals in Jmaiaca, and I would stay till the wee hours of the morning when the sun came out and I needed by shades, just to watch those old acts perform. It was total bliss... got home showered, and would be on shift... but it was all worth it.

Those are some precious memories I have of growing up in Jamaica:))))

Fabulous selection of songs, Ed! I have to agree with you on Judy Mowatt... she is incredible. Her voice reminds me of someone... I cannot place my finger on it. Marvelous, truly. Her voice is beautiful, powerful, rhythmic. I'll have to explore her music a bit more now, thanks! As for The Tide is High, I only ever recall having listened to the Blondie version which I always enjoyed. For me I think I will stick with that haha. And Redemption Song just had to lead the three. Great lyrics, emotive and sincere. Nice simple clean sound. Great post all round. I enjoyed it. !PIZZA !ALIVE !LUV

Oh, Super Ed! This selection is super cool. I love Bob Marley listening to it is reminiscent of beach days in the Caribbean when I was young, hehe. But you rocked with The Tide Is High, I love that song whatever the version, and by The Paragons is the original one;). And I haven't listened to it for so long. The tide is high but I'm holding on. I'm gonna be your number one hehe This will be the one stuck in my mind this week. 😉

When I started reading your post, I thought to myself, well here is a post I just may not have anything to say until I saw reggae and also saw that you love redemption song. That song will always remain my all time favourite reggae. The words of the song are deep and each time I sing it, I feel like what Bob sang several years ago is what we are still suffering in Nigeria but this time around we need freedom from our own politicians, people we have chosen to rule us but turns out they are out to make life very unbearable for us.

Redemption song is so so powerful and it applies to Nigeria. Those corrupt politicians forget that they are not to rule the people but there to serve the people, I know what I would do to them.
I do love reggae big time, so zyzy thought that she would not like the music I like. Well I love music of all tastes so you will be surprised;)

Ah, thanks for that...I'll check the #threetunetuesday.

That's me and Jr Gong (Damion Marley)... the youngest of Bob's sons.

That was in the early 2000s when I was PR manager at a resort...Nice guy, and we share the same birthday...he's always a high as a kite!!!🤣...and his entourage, A PAIN in the you know what!😅 I like some of his songs, but Ziggy Marley appeals to me more... Again, he has more of an international appeal than his other brothers.

How cool was that! I know Ziggy Marley, I am sure one the sons was pretty good at football too.

Being a PRD manager must have been pretty cool, meeting some great celebs, but yes the downside have to deal with the hangerson entourage!

Beres Hammond is well respected by all ages and classes of people in Jamaica, for his mellow smooth voice, and lover's rock lyrical music. Typical Jamaicans don't like dreadlocks (rasta) so the older generations like my parents hated Bob Marley.
However, Beres Hammond did not have the international appeal (in terms of looks) as Bob Marley did.

When I go to festivals in Jamaica, it doesn't matter what time Beres come on...I'll wait, even if I don't sleep for day... well, that was my younger days. I haven't been to Jamaica in ages, and it will take me some readjusting back into the society there, before I feel comfortable to go to big festivals.

Lovers rock reggae was big in London and now yes I think it was a counter to rasta reggae.
I will have to check out Beres as I am sure I will have heard his music at some point.
So you are a big Beres fan.
Festivals yes I am not so sure I would be comfortable at a big festival anymore to be honest.
I feel a reggae research and listening day tomorrow:)

That's it exactly man, and I love the surprise element too, you have no idea what you might get.

I love Bob Marley who doesn't! and I especially love Redemption song which was the first song I ever learned on the Guitar.

The Tide Is High original is the best by far, Blondie shmondie.... and Atomic who!!? 😁
