4. Lady Saw, “Give Me The Reason”

More than just a slackness deejay, the multi-talented Lady Saw really shows her range on “Give Me The Reason,” the title track from her second full-length album, from 1996. While “Give Me The Reason” is so dead on that one might easily confuse it for a Nashville cover, it actually works the other way around: according to a Lady Saw bio floating around the web, it’s the only song by a dancehall act ever to be covered by a country artist.
