Jimmy Cliff – “I Can See Clearly Now” – (1993)

Decade confusion here stems from this being a quite faithful cover of a song originally released by Johnny Nash in 1972. Jamaican reggae singer Jimmy Cliff recorded this song for the soundtrack for the 1993 film Cool Runnings starring John Candy. It climbed up a number of U.S. and international charts, hitting the top 10 on three different U.S. charts. Not only is Cool Runnings a great movie, but this is a great song and personally, I like it better than the original.
