Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Funky Kingston" by Toots and the Maytals

There's a Bud Light commercial featuring Pitbull that's on TV nonstop at the moment:

I don't really have anything much to say about the add, or the song in it.  But, the song that Pitbull took the background music from (which is basically the standard in pop music nowadays) is one of the biggest hits from one of my favorite bands, Funky Kingston by Toots and the Maytals.  "Toots" is easily the singer/band/group/artist I've seen the most often live; in fact I may well have been to as many of his shows as all other concerts put together.  Being arguably the second greatest reggae act of all time and still playing regularly on Martha's Vineyard definitely has had a lot to do with it.

On an unrelated note, Rajon Rondo posted another triple double last night.  I think he decided he was going to do it before the game even started.  Read about it on Celtics Life, and his last one on January 5th as well.
