Today is George Harrison's birthday, and while I could (and probably should) share a video of him playing his own song, this version from the tribute concert blows my socks off every time because of t

Mom and Dad's Favorite...

In the 90s there was a group called Real McCoy that did a cover of this the same year I got back from living in Asia. I never knew the original was from a Native American group in the 70s that were from right near one of the places I grew up - just outside Fresno CA:

And it also got an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy:

Which I had forgotten about.

When they tell you we were created with original sin, that's a lie.

For Jah Love Created I

 

Blessed love

Satta Massagana.
Igziabeher. Negust. Negast.

Kadamawe. Kadamawe. Kadamawe!

Give us the teaching of Marcus Garvey.
Kebra Negast means Glory of Kings.
Give I & I Selassie I and keep the guy with the blue eyes, for yourself.
Cause people without a vision perish like suicide.
You tell me its not about colour,
still you refuse to take the picture off the wall.
All you do is trick the brothers, keep them confused.
They don't know who to call in this iritical war.

And you tell me of a paradise in the sky.
But that's a lie.
And you tell me, I was born in sin and shaped in inequity.
When love created I.
Look how many prophets tried, to open our eyes.
You can't fool me.

Look how they're treating us, this new millennium slavery.
I see them hiding the chains and still beating us daily.
And now we mentally poisoned to fight we Black skin.
And bleaching ah the in thing far out and far in. Sin.
You tell me its not about colour,
still you refuse to take the images out your books.
I know that's not how we look. Kush.
Don't take offense WHEN WE SHOUT BLACK POWER, it carries us through.
We been abused.
Put yourself in my shoes.

And no tell me of a paradise in the sky.
But that's a lie.
Don't tell me, I was born in sin and shaped in inequity.
When love created I.
Look how many prophets tried, to open our eyes.
You can't fool me.
Kadamawe. Kadamawe. Kadamawe!

Look how they're treating us, this new millennium slavery.
I see them hiding the chains and still beating us daily!
And now we mentally poisoned to fight we Black skin.
And a bleaching ah the new thing far out and far in. Sin.
You tell me its not about colour,
still you refuse to take the picture off the wall.
All you do is trick the brothers, keep them confused.
They don't know who to call in this yah spiritual war.

So no tell me of a paradise in the sky.
Cause that's a lie.
And you tell me, I was born in sin and shaped in inequity.
When love created I & I.
Look how many prophets tried, to open our eyes.
You can't fool me.
Kadamawe. Kadamawe. Kadamawe!

So don't tell me of a paradise in the sky.
Cause that's a lie.
No come tell me, I was born in sin and shaped in inequity.
When love created I & I & I.
Look how many prophets tried to open our eyes.
You can't fool me.
Kadamawe. Kadamawe. Kadamawe!

You can't fool me.
NOOOOOOOO
You can't fool me.
Nooooooooooo. . . .

Oooh, @Dafadilia, the TV at 1:25 in your "Let's Mambo" video is showing my favorite scene from Hellzapoppin'...

I first saw this (un-colorized) when I was young, on a summer evening in my barn. They're having so much fun!

I've never seen or heard of it. It does look like they are enjoying themselves a lot.
