OLDIES SUNDAY: Lone Ranger – Natty Dread On The Go (1977)


How are we doing today? While a lot has been happening in the past few days, the music continues to flow. Oldies Sunday, will always show up when needed as well. Today’s selection comes from Recording Artist Lone Ranger with the track, “Natty Dread On The Go“!

Produced by Sir Coxsone Dodd and released through the Studio One label in 1977, Lone Ranger steps out with some melodic deejaying on “Natty Dread On The Go”, and displayed a musical style that started to grow in those times. With his “A1 sound“, Ranger kicks off clever lyrics that were sure to entertain the listener. “Natty Dread On The Go” was featured on his debut album, “On the Other Side Of Dub“, which was released in 1977. The track gained new life recently when it was featured in season 4 of the popular Netflix Sci-Fi series, “Stranger Things“.

Since the release of “Natty Dread On The Go”, Lone Ranger went on to release more music, lived between the US, UK, and Jamaica, and made a return to his Sound System roots. His “Natty Dread On The Go” single looks to connect with a new generation of music lovers, and open up the doors for more to discover his music.

Thank You Lone Ranger For This Classic!

.@MusicalYouth30’s “Pass The Dutchie” Featured In @Stranger_Things Season 4!


On May 27, the popular Netflix series “Stranger Things” premiered its 4th season. The series finds a group of kids experiencing various supernatural beings and events in 1980s Indiana. The new season was highly anticipated, and has been one of Netflix’s most watched products. While season 4 highlights plenty 80s aesthetic, the soundtrack also highlights some of the hits from that decade. One of the hits however, is a Reggae classic.

In episodes 4 and 6 of “Stranger Things” season 4, British boy band Musical Youth’s 1982 hit, “Pass The Dutchie” was featured. Produced by Peter Collins, this is a song about facing extreme poverty. This song was redone version of the Mighty Diamonds’ hit “Pass The Kutchie. More info on the track can be found here. The single has been been a historic one as it helped with Musical Youth being the first black group to have appeared in a Studio segment on MTV. We previously highlighted the track being featured in a South Park episode.

.@DuttyPaul’s “Get Busy” Featured In @NetflixFilm, “Along For The Ride”


Have you been watching any good movies lately? Here’s something that appeared on our radar recently. Netflix recently released the film, “Along For The Ride“. Starring Emma Pasarow, Belmont Cameli, and Andie McDowell, this is a Romance/Drama film that finds two Teenagers meeting up nightly to help one experience the fun, carefree teen life before heading off to College. The main reason for this post however, is the fact that a Dancehall classic was featured in the film!

During a few minutes into the film, Sean Paul’s 2002 GRAMMY nominated classic, “Get Busy” was featured. Produced by Steven “Lenky” Marsden on the “Diwali Riddim” (you can find a Playlist dedicated to this Riddim here.), Sean Paul’s “Get Busy” was the summer Dancehall anthem around the world, and was featured on his GRAMMY winning seanmultiplatinum album, “Dutty Rock“. Sean Paul has had some of his music featured in films before, and we highlighted the inclusion of his Sia collaboration “Cheap Thrills” last year in the “Black Widow” film. The “Along For The Ride” film is available for viewing now on Netflix.

.@DiRealShaggy Classics Featured In “Ginny & Georgia” @Netflix Series


It keeps getting better and better for Jamaican music Icon Shaggy. In the past few years, you could find the GRAMMY winning artist’s music playing in some of your favourite movies, commercials, and even TV shows. Earlier this year, his classic “It Wasn’t Me” was featured in a Cheetos commercial for Super Bowl LV, and now we find his music in the new Netflix series, “Ginny & Georgia“!

In season one of “Ginny & Georgia”, not only was “It Wasn’t Me” featured in the debut episode, but his “Luv Me Luv Me” collaboration with Samantha Cole was featured in episode 6. Originally featured on Shaggy’s 2000 Diamond selling album “Hot Shot“, the artist continues to show that when you make good music, it will live on. “It Wasn’t Me” was released in 2000, and has moved on from being a Billboard charting single, to now being a part of Pop Culture, and becoming a staple in movies and TV shows. Originally released in 1998, “Luv Me Luv Me” originally featured Pop Icon Janet Jackson, and was featured on the soundtrack for “How Stella Got Her Groove Back“. Due to label politics, the single had to be re-recorded and released as a single in 2001 with Pop Artist Samantha Cole as the original was not allowed to be featured on the “Hot Shot” album. “Ginny & Georgia” is a Netflix “Dramedy” series that follows teenager Ginny Miller, and her interactions and display of maturity with her 30 year old mother, Georgia. Kaya Pino is the Music Supervisor behind the series’ soundtrack.
