Tempo, my God dis ya soun' in a tempo!

Today's tune is something that I remember very well from when it first came out. Released in 1985 (just before 'Sleng Teng'), 'Tempo' was the first proper digital tune, and is still my favourite even after all these years. The rhythm is close to 'Stalag 17', and the lyrics are a proper anthem to all sound systems.

There's a nice little article in the Gleaner about how the tune was recorded. There's some more here about what Redrose has been up to since.
