Made a playlist of all the non-ska bands playing ska & reggae songs that I could. If you think you have more songs to add, comment here or at ReadJunk.com:
Everybody loves ska & reggae right? Wait, where are you going!? We’ve already made a ska playlist but I was thinking ReadJunk.com should compile a bunch of ska and reggae-style songs from musicians and bands that aren’t known for playing ska or reggae music. Some of these might be a little bit of a stretch but whatever, we needed filler haha. I’m not suggesting the bands themselves are straight up ska, but the songs below contain elements of ska or reggae so don’t get your panties in a bunch. Like always, if we missed a song; please comment down below with your choices!
You can listen to the playlist below on Spotify or subscribe here.
Amy Winehouse – “Monkey Man”
Everyone knows her “Rehab” song but not too many know that she has done her fair share of ska covers, including this one.
Anti-Flag – “That’s Youth”
Anti-Flag may play straight up political punk, but “That’s Youth” got a very ska-ish upstroke to it.
Authority Zero – “Retreat”
Authority Zero are mostly known for playing skater punk songs but they have plenty of ska tunes that they could make a whole ska album just of those songs.
The Beatles – “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da”
This is a little bit of a stretch but that’s okay. It’s more reggae than ska. Sadly I found a Phish cover of the song on Spotify and that’s even more ska-ish
