Rogge To Write New National Anthem For Jamaica
August 21, 2008 § Leave a comment
My sources tell me that Jack Rogge’s is penning a new national anthem for Jamaica and he’s already got himself a great title for the piece! Rogge, a one time DJ and part-time accordionist is getting down in Eddy Grant’s studio to come up with something that will “blow the shit out of the water” as the current anthem is “way too stoned”.
Speaking to a friend of mine Rogge explains “The Jamaicans are sick, sick, sick I tell you of that reggae shit. What I wanna do is come up with something that will reflect the speed of ‘The Lightning Bolt’ (Heh! heh!) as well as mixing in the street sounds of friendly fire. I tell you, they won’t be singing Eddy’s I Don’t Wanna Dance anymore for they will be shouting for I Wanna Run, Run, Run Into The Sun, Sun, Sun! I still think the guys should show more respect for their competitors when they smash the records and shake hands, give a tap on the shoulder to the other ones immediately after the finish and not make gestures like the ones Usain made in the 100m.”
