Willie Nelson, "Sitting in Limbo"
Willie Nelson and reggae go together like, well, Willie and weed, so it was no surprise when the Texas legend tapped into the spirit of Jamaica on 2005's Countryman. On "Sitting in Limbo," Nelson blends his Lone Star spirit with that classic off-beat island swank, and the result is a perfect merging of minds – and also the perfect soundtrack to scrambling yours to oblivion. Released first by Jimmy Cliff, "Sitting in Limbo" was often covered by Jerry Garcia, and it's deceptively deeper than its infectious groove would suggest. "Sitting here in limbo, got some time to search my soul," sings Nelson: he might allow plenty of time to get high, but he's not going to waste those moments on mindlessness, either.
