This week is all about music for vacation.
#5 My Morning Jacket "One Big Holiday"
We kicked show off with some Indie vibes; a song to set the stage for more to follow...
#4 Arabian Prince "Let's Hit The Beach"
Early electro-hip-hop from a pioneer. A silly and simple song, but fun feel-good message are the highlights.
#3 Dead Kennedys "Holiday In Cambodia"
Song finds its legs on the T5C some 30 years after its creation as the ironic/amusing selection; gotta' have one of those for a top 5.
#2 10cc "Dreadlock Holiday"
-Got the live version for a song that practically reeks of rum and Jamaican "tobacco." Though it's only kinda-reggae, always liked the fun vibe of this song>
#1 Bob Marley "One Love / People Get Ready"
This song really hits the mark since it's been featured as the official song for the Jamaican Tourism Board, and perfect ending for another Top 5 Countdown.
