Oh Mr. DJ

To the best of my knowledge, this song, Roots Rockin', was originally done by the group Aswad.  That's as far back as I can trace it, but I haven't really researched it thoroughly yet.  And according to Wikipedia, they were also known for their versions of Don't Turn Around and Best of My Love.  I'll save that for anazah lonely day.

Anyway, here's a video, but the "sun-splashin" part kinda throws me off.

This song is so popular, that it's been covered many times by various artists, or at least has inspired others with its lyrics.  Check these out.

Boss DJ - Sublime
Bad Fish/Boss DJ Jack Johnson
Boss DJ - Reel Big Fish (sorry, I can't find the file)

See how the torch has been passed?  It's like music evolution!
