2. “Tempted to Touch” (1990)
This is the definitive tune on the definitive lover’s riddim (“Love I Can Feel”) from the definitive label (Penthouse) of what is undoubtedly the most definitive period of dancehall music (1990) and it is no surprise that it has spawned multiple spin-offs (Rupee, Busy Signal). Speaking for DJs, there is no question whether this tune will play at a reggae dance. The only question is: Cutty Ranks version or no Cutty version?
