The Atlantic Daily’s New Year’s Eve Playlist

[Many thanks to Peter Jordens for bringing this item to our attention.] In “The Atlantic Daily: Our New Year’s Eve Playlist,” Caroline Mimbs Nyce (The Atlantic) writes, “Crowds are a no-no this New Year’s Eve, but there are no restrictions on dancing by yourself. To help you say good riddance to 2020 in style, I asked three writers who cover music—Spencer Kornhaber, Hannah Giorgis, and James Parker—to put together a playlist worthy of your evening. Follow along on our Spotify.”  

From this New Year’s Eve playlist, here are four songs by artists with roots in the Caribbean:

Augustus Pablo – “King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown” (1976), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztq7-kkygZk
