Jamaican love songs always came across as heartfelt poetry whether they conveyed a broken heart, unrequited love or even the message 'it's all over don't bother to come back' anecdotes. But whatever the mood the singers of these songs were so good and versatile that putting such subject matter over in a few verses was always so moving and believable.
Jamaican love songs were a constant in the ever evolving sounds and journey's that reggae music took us on, from ska to rocksteady to the early reggae sounds of the late 1960's early 1970's. We have complied a great selection of songs that all deal with that timeless subject matter. A great selection delivered as only Jamaica can do with style and feeling.
