  1. This is kind of cheating as you’ve refused entry to the Shaggy tune, but cheating is surely appropriate here so:

    Lady Saw & Marsha – Son Of A Bitch

    or another Lady Saw tune, I’ve Got Your Man:

    There’s a lot of dancehall tunes about cheating; Lady Saw probably made about 28% of them.

    Shaggy’s latest tune isn’t really about cheating but the video is, and there’s a counteraction from Lady Saw as well:

    Badman Don’t Cry (Shaggy)

    Bad Man Gwaan Cry (Lady Saw)

  2. hmmm. I have suggestions for # 10. How about:

    1. Jocelyn Brown – Somebody Else’s Guy
    2. Ike and Tina Turner – Three o’clock in the Morning Blues
    3. Andre 3000 – She Lives In My Lap
    4. Fat Freddie’s Drop – Wandering Eye

  3. One more: Zulema – Watchin You
