Top of the Pops BBC4

I had managed to block out the reggae onslaught of 1993 from my mind but it's starting now with Shaggy, Snow and the odious Shabba Ranks, ultimately leading to the twin horrors of Pato Banton and Bitty McLean... *shudder*

Bring on Eurodance and quick!

I absolutely despised reggae at the time, although as I've got older I don't mind it so much when it's cross-pollinates into other things. I guess it just sort of sounded really naff to 10-year old Scottish schoolboy ears miles and miles removed from anywhere where there is cultural ties to the sound.

That said, I really really have a soft spot for "Sweat (A la, la, la, la, long)"
