HI I'M TMD!
Andrew128900 Ska? WTF?!
- Ska is dance music, first and foremost. Ska was a Jamaican dance music that swept out of Jamaica in the early 1960s to shake the butts of working- and middle-class Jamaicans before going on, via the West Indian immigrant connection, to the UK, and then on to the world.
- Musically, Ska is a fusion of Jamaican mento rhythm with R&B, with the drum coming in on the 2nd and 4th beats, and the guitar emphasizing the up of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th beats. The drum therefore is carrying the blues and swing beats of the American music, and the guitar expressing the mento sound. Ska is about 40 years old, developed in Jamacia as dance music in the Early 60's.
- Ska is a what you got when you took African American R&B with traditional Jamacian Music. This was mostly Jazz and Mento but also was influenced by calipso and yaya.
- The word Ska came from a traditional Jamacian greeting Love Skavoovie. The Ska is what they called the dance people did to this music.

So I drank a few beers and watched the movie Clueless the other night with a friend. Had no idea the Bosstones were in it, but I got a little excited when they started playing. She definitely wtf'd at my level of ecstaticism. Apparently I'm making up words now.
aggravation, isolation; it all leads to devastation
