Jah Light Shining Bright

jah light shining bright.

I said it once, but I’ll say it again: Now that everyone is all “irie” from listening to the reggae mixtape I posted a few days ago, I thought I&I would share one more tasty song. This one comes from the Rip Curl movie, The Search II. The three Search flicks are my favorite surf movies. I watched them A LOT when I was a kid. I included two songs in this segment (I meant to just post the first clip, but the second song is so good that I included that, too). The first song is an attempt to break the stereotype that rastamans are only about smoking ganj. But for kids like me, the result of listening to it over and over was that for a few years we replaced the common phrase, “Yeah right” with “Jah light.”
