Day 148 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Michigan & Smiley - Arise
Happy Easter everyone! Believe me, I spent a lot of time trying to find a song that would be considered Easter appropriate but aside from a tune from Rico Rodriguez called "Easter Island" that I'm not real crazy about, I came up empty. So, I came up with this one from Michigan & Smiley called "Arise" - which works pretty well if you celebrate Easter for obvious reasons. But the title is about as far as you're gonna get with a Christian tie-in, as you'll soon hear. This one comes from Michigan & Smiley's 1982 album Downpression on the Greensleeves label. Have a great Sunday my friends!
