    Chalice’s “I still love you” isn’t reggae (still a fantastic song, though), and I think this list should have only those songs that are originally reggae. Most on the list are reggae versions of love songs made by other artistes. So Beres’s songs, Tarrus Riley’s She’s Royal, and some others would then moved up on the list
