You Can Get It If You Really Want – Song Of The Day

Desmond Dekker

Though “You Can Get It You Really Want” is often attributed to Jimmy Cliff alone, it was Desmond Dekker who recorded a version of the song back in 1970 and helped it reach number 2 in the charts. Of course, Cliff wrote the song and his version, which shares the same backing track as this one, was also a big hit. The song is about as uplifting as it gets but not in a cheesy way: it manages to be cool and groovy enough to give you a solid burst of positivity and make you feel like dancing and singing along as well.

Classic.
