Ooh, Yeah!

Now I’m not putting down Country Music, except for just about any Country Music produced since, lets say 1985 (too much electric garbage.) I have a vast collection of a lot of the good old stuff, yes Patsy, Bob Willis, Hank Sr. and Jerry Jeff, too. So I’m not writing this as an anti Country piece here.

Now when you watch an old Western, of if you are at the fair and you are watching a horse show, slip on a pair of headphones and play some Bob Marley. You will quickly realize that Ragge is the music of the horse.

Ooh, yeah! All right!
We're jammin':
I wanna jam it wid you.
We're jammin', jammin',
And I hope you like jammin', too.

There is something more musically sympathetic with the hoof beats with Ragge than with Country Music. Flying lead change, no problem, that back beat is still there. Dressage? Again, no problem.

Forget Country, forget Vivaldi for you classical fans. Horses deserve the songs of the Rasta Man. See you at the Fair. Ooh, yeah! We’re jammin.
