Ska Theme Songs

Today, we won’t be focusing on just one artist’s or band’s work, but instead on the genre of Ska. Ska originated in Jamaica in the 1950s, predating reggae and rocksteady. There are three periods Ska music is divided into chronologically. Pop over to Wikipedia if you really want to learn about them. Otherwise, scroll down and enjoy.

First, Scooby Doo by Punk Covers

Space Bells by Ska Skank Redemption

Zion-I Remixes Rebelution

Rebelution’s song Safe and Sound stands pretty well on its own. But this remix from Zion-I takes the smooth reggae and picks up the tempo to turn it into a great song to listen to in the car, in your dorm, or even anywhere you can just sit back relax and let it flow over you.

Feel free to move with it:

Donnis

Donnis is an up and coming rapper out of Atlanta Georgia who released his first mixtape in 2009.  His sound is made for the party scene, with catchy synths and lyrics based on the fast life.  His voice is comparable to B.O.B. but his content and lyrical style is in it’s own genre.

Gone

This song is made for the all nighters.  Play this track on the drive to a party and you’ll have the perfect balance of rager mentality mixed with the right balance of the chilled attitude.  Clever punchlines and a hook that describes most Saturday nights makes this song essential to the party playlist.

Underdog

Underdog displays the quick lyrical ability that he can bring.  The instrumentals seem throwback to an old school style of sampling makes the song sound like it could be a classic.


James Blake

James Blake is a young London native with a striking voice and a style that most people aren’t used to.  He has roots in the dubstep scene and is poised to release his first album soon.  Blake utilizes piano tunes and seemingly eclectic electronic rythms to create slow meaningful melodies.

Limit to Your Love

Blake’s first single “Limit to Your Love” is a slow emotional song that emphasizes his unique vocal abilities and dubstep background.  Turn your bass up and be ready to empathize with this guy as you watch the mournfully lonely video.

What do you think of this guy’s unique sound?
