Desmond Dekker died today.
Check out this crazy video for "Israelite".
Of course, 007 (Shanty Town) may be one of the best ska songs ever and I've always been very partial to "Pickney Gal."
I also like how Dekker referenced movies a lot in his songs (kind of similar to how rappers are always referencing gangster movies). In "Israelites" there is the line, "I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde." In 007 (Shanty Town) , " 0-0-7, 0-0-7, at Ocean's Eleven..."
