A lot of Bob Marley, and a lot of Disco hahaha.
I am someone who eats from both sides. STILL DO!!! graemlins/bigwink.gif
I am also a big fan of R&B, like the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, The pretenders, Diana Ross that kind of music.
I am a Romantic woman. graemlins/love.gif That's why I love the easy songs from UB40 so much, Sweet Sensation, Can't help falling in love, Don't break my heart,love it when you smile and so further and further

Love Bianca graemlins/kiss.gif

I was born in 1972, so I was brought up around the likes of Abba and Grease!

An early reggae influence for me living in New Zealand was the group "Herbs" who have supported UB40 in tours in the late 80's

I was born in 73 and bought and was disapointed by nearly every album I bought you know thriller, wham etc. Then Best of Vol 1 in my christams stocking when I was 16 and I haven't looked back. Everytime I listen to my favourite reggae artists I thank UB40 for the introduction to reggae.
