Good selection!

And wasn't Kazaa a free file-swapping site not so long ago?

Got a couple of songs to add to your list:

Blame It On The Rum -- Jimmy Buffett
Jammin' -- Bob Marley
Hot Hot Hot, by (don't recall the name, at the moment!)
Montego Bay, by ???

Cynic, I have a lot of those choices on the CD you made for me with Ragga Ragga on it, so that I could put it on the Century CD. Just love listening to those, and do so often to "get in the mood" when I can't go cruising!

Our local radio station plays a few of them regularly too (Hot Hot Hot, Dollar Wine, La Bomba, Everybody Salsa) on the Saturday night show.
I imagine I'll be hearing a lot of them next week in Jamaica too.....
