But the song was born of the genius of Arrow, a calypso and soca star from the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat. Pioneering female Jamaican dancehall singer Sister Nancy recorded this slow-burn classic in Kingston, Jamaica rapper Sean Paul topped the international charts with the driving beat of this dancehall hit. I hear this song and immediately think of a conga line. This song and the film of the same name are widely credited with introducing reggae to the world. Put yuh hands in the air and follow along with this distinctly Caribbean twist on the Electric Slide.

I've been assembling playlists to bring along to St. John 4 more days!! I already had a lot of suitable songs, but wanted some new stuff so I looked at all the "island music" threads I could find and ended up buying new tunes from Itunes. It's a little archaic, but I still prefer to organize my music into hour-long albums and burn them to CD. I even print out labels with track lists and cute clip-art. Here's my first compilation, composed mostly of the new songs I downloaded. Yeah, I know, I got wandered from the "island" theme occasionally.
Though none of us will probably be heading on vacation to the shore anytime soon, a girl can dream about a mix of head-bangers and soothing escapes in-between a day of swimming and drinking from a koozie. That said, nobody says you actually have to be at the beach to enjoy a great beach playlist. If it will help you escape the real world for a little in these unpredictable times, then that's all we can ask for. So, the next time you head on a weekend getaway or pretend to be on one as you work from home for the foreseeable future, radiate good vibes and hit play on our summer beach playlist, below.
