“You Won’t See Me” first appeared on the 1965 album Rubber Soul, a hugely underrated album track written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and produced by George Martin. The track went on to become quite the Soundsystem hit in Jamaica when The Clarendonians covered the song for Coxson Dodd at Studio One in 1966. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Jamaica’s relationship with The Beatles.
With cover songs proving to be incredibly popular, ‘Fab Four’ band members are quoted as expressing their love for all things Jamaican in a number of interviews. Another chart-topping song in the late ’60s, and perhaps one of the most famous songs about a horse ever written, was “Long Shot By The Bucket”by The Pioneers, a song that went on to convert a generation of Brits into Reggae fanatics.
