Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular 2013 - Track Twenty-Two - Zombie

We're nearing the end and again, we're keeping the digital vibes, this time even a little more closer to modern.  I found "Zombie" by Little General last October and unlike the multitude of modern dancehall tunes that use the word duppy as a descriptor for the end-result of violent activity, this tune is pretty lighthearted and fun.  The zombies referenced in the song are not the rise from their grave, thirsty for human blood and brains variety... give it a listen!  Not to mention, that once I heard the pipe organ introduction, complete with werewolf howls, I knew that I had a new addition to the ever-growing Duppy Tune Playlist... it comes to us from a 1995 12" on the U.K. based Boomerang label.
