LucidSportsFan’s Awesome Old Song of the Week

There’s a Bud Light commercial featuring Pitbull that’s on TV nonstop at the moment:

I don’t really have anything much to say about the add, or the song in it, other than I just discovered by complete coincidence that yesterday was Pitbull’s birthday.  Anyway, the song that he took the background music from (which is basically the standard in pop music nowadays) is one of the biggest hits from one of my favorite bands, Funky Kingston by Toots and the Maytals.  “Toots” is easily the singer/band/group/artist I’ve seen the most often live; in fact I may well have been to as many of his shows as all other concerts put together.  Being arguably the second greatest reggae act of all time and still playing regularly on my onetime home of Martha’s Vineyard definitely has had a lot to do with it.
