Reggae Covers: Big Youth – Wake Up Everybody (Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes)

Posted on Updated on

A plaintive, slow-rolling version of the 1975 original by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, this cover lacks a lot of the typical punch & urgency of Big Youth’s music but the message is spot-on with the original.

The world won’t get no better
if we just let it be
