5. Barrington Levy, “Too Experienced”

best of barrington too experienced

We coulda pulled any number of tracks from Barrington’s greatest hits for this list โ€”even a song as triumphant sounding as “Here I Come” is about a connection gone awry. But anyone who’s ever struggled with a would-be significant other who still wants to have their cake and eat it, too, has to love the cool way Barrington breaks things down: “I’m too experienced to be taken for a stroll…….too experienced for someone to rock and roll, Im too experienced to be taken for a ride, and I know its not my foolish pride.” Amen to that! โ€”Jesse Serwer
