MACKA B – NEVER PLAYED A 45

 

Yo, you can’t say that you have such a great reggae selection
And you don’t have one 7 inch 45 inna your collection

Me a tell di people dem it’s all about di 45
There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe
You’re a selector and you’ve never played a 45
There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe – yo, yo

You ever feel di vibe when you hold a 45
With your thumb inna di middle fingers on di outside
Black vinyl about 7 inch wide
Information ‘pon di label, music ‘pon di two sides
Something ’bout di 45 mi seh something ’bout di vibe
Brand new tunes to not just revive
You could a have a million tunes upon your hard drive
But there’s something ’bout di touch and di look and di vibe of a 45

Something ’bout di feel and di vibe
How you a DJ and you never played a 45
A something ’bout di feel and di vibe – yo, yo

When you put it ‘pon di deck you know a musical kiss
When di needle touch di vinyl, then you hear a little hiss
Bass sound warm and di top sound crisp
Not so digital like a compact disc
Every DJ haffi experience dis
‘Cause this a part of your musical apprentice
Play di vocal, then di version with a flick of your wrist
Then di MC come inna dis

Cah it’s all about di 45
There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe
You’re a selector and you’ve never played a 45
A something ’bout di feel and di vibe

Well I’m not saying, that you should be playing
The 7 inch 45 only
But if you are able, go buy a turntable
You can also get dem with di USB
It’s alright to play laptops, alright to play CDs
It’s alright to play your MP3’s
But don’t leave out di vinyl, cah you can use dem side by side
With the modern technology, Lord

Well mi nuh stupid and you know seh mi nuh thick
Mi know seh times change and you must move with it
One thousand tunes ‘pon one memory stick
And you don’t need no box, it can fit in your pocket
But if you’ve never played a 45 before, why don’t you try it?
Borrow one from your friend if you nuh have money fi buy it
You know its gotta vibe and you just can’t deny it
Macka B come fi testify it

It’s all about di 45
There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe
So you’re a DJ you fi try a play a 45
There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe
You’re a selector you fi try and play a 45
There’s something ’bout the feel and di vibe
Mi a tell di people dem it’s all about di 45
There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe – yo, yo
Seh 45s still a press and 45s still a mek
You can buy dem inna di shop or get dem ‘pon internet
It good fi have a couple 45 fi select
And every reggae DJ’s supposed to have a deck
You can’t sweep your 45 dem under di carpet
Some people seh dem dead, but dem nuh dead yet
Man a hunt 45 like dem a private detect
A pay big money and a write big cheque

Fi di 45 There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe
Mi a tell di people dem fi try and play a 45
There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe
How you a DJ and you’ve never played a 45
There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe
You’re a selector you fi try and playa 45
There’s something ’bout di feel and di vibe – yo, yo
