You can’t always get what you want….

I bet you thought this was going to be about the stones… its not.

So I’ve been in a funk for a little while and there is certainly one thing that will cheer me up everytime; though he can’t fix all the problems and complications you may encounter, Jimmy Cliff can mellow you out a good deal.  He grew up a second class citizen in Jamacia and despite his influence on reggae Jimmy never really hit the mainstream.  Many of his songs address the troubling realities of the plight of Africans around the world, however he never seems to lose touch of other aspects of life that make it all worthwhile, like hope for a better future.
