A friend was recently lamenting to me that her three-year-old son is really drawn to reggae music, and how she wished that she had the time to go through her substantial reggae CD collection and burn discs of child-appropriate songs, as she'd rather he not listen to songs with drug-related lyrics. ("Mostly," she admits, "because I'll never hear the end of it from my Mother-in-Law if Benny sings some of those lyrics at family dinner!") The truth is, the majority of recorded reggae songs aren't particularly offensive, but many roots reggae songs do reference ganja, and lots of modern dancehall is peppered with slack lyrics, so Jamaican music can be a little bit of a minefield with a certain age of child. Luckily, some kind souls have either recorded or compiled various reggae CDs specifically for little ears. The best ones are those that grown-ups can listen to and love also, and that's why I've put together this list of Great Reggae Music for Kids.
