‘Me Naw Give Up’

In 1960 the name of Derrick Morgan was simultaneously on the #1 through #7 top songs on Jamaica’s national charts. No one, including Bob Marley, had accomplished this before or since. Morgan’s musical career was shortchanged by failing eyesight of which he sadly described as seeing only “lights and clouds”.

Here’s a Derrick Morgan song fitting for our recessionary times, when hardly a day passes without hearing about more layoffs: Me Naw Give Up.

“Things turn out the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.”
— John Wooden
