"The Harder They Come" ALERT

Starring Jimmy Cliff as Ivan

Is on November 28th @ 2:00AM...I know Guns Of Bavaria will want to see this one, since we like the same kind of movies. It's on TCM. The music soundtrack inspired everyone from Jerry Garcia, Springsteen, and Joe Strummer to commercials that still play this stuff today-true music lovers set your DVRs for this one

the officers are trying to get me down

trying to drive me underground

and they think that they have got the battle won

i say forgive them Lord they know not what they've done

so as sure as the sun will shine

im gonna get my share now of what's mine

and then the harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all

The greatest scence in that movie is when Jimmy goes to the recording studio and Toots and The Maytals are singing Sweet and Dandy.

BTW, I own the sound track, its a double disc set. Really great classic Reggae hits.

My favorite Jimmy Cliff tune, "Let your yeah be yeah"

I've been wondering wher you been BG-I've been all kinds of inspired musically the last week or so...Youtubing it like crazy too

I've been around. Sometimes I feel like I post a plethora of music videos or push too many of my favorites. Here an upbeat number--Wonderful World, Beautiful People--I always liked by Jimmy Cliff:

i originally thought those were the words but I looked it up on lyrics page and they said "officers"

both probably work

yea oppressors Matt-I love how at the end of the song the organist just kind of say EFF it and plays wrong chords "enough already Mon lets go smoke a spliff"
