Flashback Thursday: Big Youth

– ‘Hit the Road Jack’ (1976)

Though the Ray Charles version in undeniably good, this reggae cover of ‘Hit the Road Jack’ by Big Youth resonates so much more for me; never has a song made me so nostalgic for my childhood. It reminds me of eating cheese on toast in my old living room, my parents, my childhood home – which seemed perfect at the time – and simpler times before the stresses of adult life.
