"Sun is  Shining" is a 1971 reggae song originally recorded by Bob Marley. You probably knew that. You also probably know that it's been remixed multiple times. A remixed version actually topped the dance charts back in 99.

The song has been remixed again. This time by Jeff Rose - again as a dance tune - for the Global Fund. The Global Fund is an organization that invests money in saving lives, specifically against malaria,TB, and AIDS.

I like their cause. Sometimes here (in our first world mindset) we take so much for granted. It's easy to forget the plight of others. And while I can't guarantee it, I like their claims to hold themselves to a high accountability and responsibility. I mean, shouldn't we  all do that?

So where's the review, you're asking? I'm rambling on about good causes, remixes, and dance tunes, but I haven't said a damn thang about the song. Well look, I wanted to hate it.  I groaned when I saw it. Seriously, must we continue to defile Bob Marley tunes? But actually, I liked it a lot. Now I gotta be honest, I'm an old softie for a good cause. But that's not to take anything away from the song. It's got a good beat and you can dance to it. Not to mention, as I said, their cause is more than worthy, and that alone makes the single (and the album) worth purchasing.
