Jimmy Cliff has covered The Clash's "Guns of Brixton" and you can check it out here. The septuagenarian has turned the punk rock anthem into a reggae flavored jam and be forewarned. It's addictively infectious. We love what Cliff has done with the song and can't stop listening to it, thanks to the island feel with which Cliff infuses the tune.
It's easy, breezy and veers so completely off the beaten path that we don't think Cliff could find said path with a GPS, which is a good thing. He is forging his own path with an established classic; he has taken the song and made it his own and therefore, we give the cover two very enthusiastic thumbs up, to quote Travis from Clueless.
Listen to it again and again.
