We too can’t wait for Saturday evening.

1. Don’t Haffi Dread
Probably the favourite of many too, yeah you don’t have to have dread to love Reggae music.
You don’t ha fi dread to be Rasta (Don’t ha fi dread) /This is not a dreadlocks thing /Divine conception of the heart
2. Strictly Roots

3. Mount Zion Medley
From the Morgan Heritage and Friends: Volume 1 album, Mount Zion Medley features a star line up of performers such as Jah Cure,Bushman,Capleton LMS and Ras Shiloh.
4. Tell Me How Come
Taken from the 2005 album Full Circle, The song looks at the bad state of life and how people are relating to each other specifically in their country of Jamaica. It’s one of those songs that causes you to look deeply at the issues that common black societies are going through.
Tell me how come, there’s so many guns in the street /An’ none a dem gun deh neva mek ya
Tell me how come, AIDS is spreading wide / Taking over this sweet paradise of Jamaica
5. I’m Coming Home
What would be a Morgan Heritage concert without one for the lovers? Again from the topping chatting 2005 Full Circle album.
I will let the lyrics speak for themselves
I’m coming home (yeah)
There was a time when all I wanted to do
Was the only things that mattered to me (yeeah)
But when a man and a woman builds their home
A man’s gotta do what his family needs him to do
When I come home everything should be alright
So mammy hold on everything will be just fine
So I’m coming everything should be alright
So baby hold on everything will be just fine
Well,there are a lot of hit songs this band that picking favourites will just be like asking a parent to choose between his favourite children.
See you Saturday at the HICC
