It’s Protoje! – Pushing The Jamaican Music Envelope – He Just Wants To Be Righteous

One of several reasons why I don’t listen to current popular music, in addition to just being older, and not quite understanding its messages, is that there is such adventure in exploring music that I may have never heard before, whether new or old.   There’s just too much music out there to waste time.

Good music is timeless to me.  With music streaming services, Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music & Videos, coupled with AI, I am exploring and enjoying new music all the time.  Some of the new music is not so new, but it doesn’t matter.

In a prior post, I mentioned the analogy of our personal lives being like a movie, and that each of us is certainly the star of that movie.  Everyone else is extras.  By the way, I got that from watching a YT video. 

Taking this analogy a bit further, the music that I listen to and discover becomes the theme music and soundtrack to my movie.  My life is filled with music every day.   I listen to music constantly, all kinds.  I especially love international music that moves me.  Often, I do not understand the language or dialects, but I can feel the rhythms and emotions.

I have shared music through my blog before, including gospel, reggae, South African, Senegalese, and even Depeche Mode.  These are the sounds of my life.  I also listen to jazz, especially Coltrane, and Miles.  I even recently discovered Shirley Bassey!

Today, I introduce you to Protoje.  He is another artist in my eclectic taste that moves me in many ways.  His music pushes the envelope of the Jamaican music style.  His sound has hip hop, dancehall, culture, rock, and even pop influences.

Socially Conscious Songs That I Love – Heavily Reggae Influenced – But Others May Surprise U! – So Much Music – Loads Slow – Worth Waiting 4

I’ve said this before, but I will say it again as a preface to this post. I do so boldly because I am not afraid of talking about those things that no one wants to discuss or admit. I enjoy courageous conversations. Those who are so brave are often the pioneers of progress. We should all speak up and speak out.

With all the coronavirus hype, I believe that there is a great deal of mind control at work. It amazes me how it seems the whole world “Follows” whatever is popular in media, such as raiding shelves of toilet tissue, fearing the coronavirus, making hasty decisions without question or investigation, “Liking” Nas X’s depicted encounter with Satan, twerking, being a “bad bitch”, or whatever.

Most people are being programmed and don’t realize it.

Well, we all are, including me, but I realize it. It is mainly being done for profit. AI is now forming our perceptions and emotions. I know this! I am very connected with the latest AI, machine learning movements. I have an over 20-year career history in technology.

The World Through Their Eyes – Depeche Mode – It’s Construction Time Again – My Favorite CD! – Their Message Is Strong & Raw – A Ministry Of LOVE, In Itself

I promised to share my eclectic music tastes with you. I love electronic rock, especially from Europe.

Depeche Mode has to be one of my all-time favorite groups. I love their Euro industrial electronic rock sound., But more than that, I love that their messages, so bold and so raw. The messages resonate with me.


I’ve been a big fan of Depeche Mode. I think their 1st album was Construction Time Again. I love almost every song on that album. I’ve been into Depeche Mode for a long time but recently, I guess because of my membership in Spotify, YT Music, and Pandora, as well as other music streaming services, I stumble on old songs that I used to love, that I almost forgot about.

I don’t listen to new music much at all. Anyway, there is a remarkably interesting story behind me rediscovering how much I love Depeche Mode.
