6. Tic Toc

busy-signal-tic-toc

Another very unusual sounding dancehall tune that appeared on ’08’s Loaded, “Tic Toc” was one of that album’s featured singles, and even got the attention of M.I.A., who appeared on a remix. With its East Asia-inspired riddim and female vocals, “Tic Toc” sounded like nothing else at the time of its release and still doesn’t, really. But it wasn’t so weird that it didn’t get strong dancefloor reactions from crowds of all types. โ€”Jesse Serwer
