No collection of reggae covers would be complete without profuse mention of the groundbreaking 2003 ‘Dub Side of the Moon‘ project by NYC’s Easy Star All Stars dub collective. Subsequent ESAS projects have included ‘Radiodread‘ (a song-for-song transliteration of Radiohead‘s ‘OK Computer’) and the same treatment applied to The Beatles‘ seminal ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band’ via ‘Easy Star’s Lonely Heart’s Dub Band.’
So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
