Does anyone know the names and artists of these tracks, and if they're in any riddims?

1. Can't take my girl she's in love with me, I treat her like a lady, fulfill her dreams, Me and my chick we're a perfect fit
2. It's good to be good and bad to be bad, it's good to be joyful and bad to be sad, it's good to be sober and bad to be mad... joy for all, equal rights and justice for all
3. Take a message to my mama, tell her I love her so (and then really fast lyrics I can't understand)
4. This is for you my dear, a blessing to show I care... your presence, was on my preference... you deserve, all the love there is
5. I swear, that I will never switch, I swear, that I will never hit you... Give me some space give me some room, and let my people come through (same riddim as #4)
6. Girl you're on the highway (my way?), it's the highest grade...(something something) pon di corner, you keep it coming, you make me smarter, nananananana yeah (same riddim as #4 and #5) I think this might be Richie Spice but i'm not sure
7. My mama held me tight, stayed up through the night, to rock me gently to sleep... She made a sacrifice, never comprimised, to make the best life for me... You're truly a blessing, mama you're special, Thanks for all you've done for me, mama I love you sincerely (same riddim as #4-6)
8. I know Jah done bless me, no wickedness can test me... nah can make de river run dry... Emperor Selassie never see the judgement
9. How could life be like this, well everyone should be giving thanks and praises, oh Lord... Downtown, our love will (something)... Uptown, flood out... The wicked man loves his gun
10. You shouldn't bring love come to town, you shoulda left dem at home, spread joy around
11. Now de rain come falling and de house start leaking, all of the things in the place got wet... some lyrics mentioning Parliament and government and then in falsetto he sings "who's going to drive the fear awaaay"
12. Baby girl, why do you cry? Wipe those tears from your eyes. Baby girl, why do you cry, you know I'll never leave you side
13. A chapter a day, keeps the devil away.... The words of his majesty, I don proclaim, Behold the Emperor! The world is perfect, perfection is the key to life, Behold the Emperor! Oh ai ai ai ai ai, Jah your words are beautiful...(this sounds like an old school track, but i'm not sure)
14. How much dem wanna be a big superstar-ah... Sing out from town to town, I let off my music and sound! So I'm talking to you kings and queens, just bump up your self-esteem, say you can fulfill your dreams, no matter how hard it seems!(a deep male voice repeats "Work!" on the chorus)

Thank you for helping and "Jah bless"!:D

There really needs to be a site just for finding reggae artists and song names. I always here songs I like in passing or on the radio but can never find the artist or song name. Reggae music is great and if it could be easily found and spread it will get that much bigger. For you reggae fans have you heard of the group John Brown's body? I just started listening to them and they make some great music. The marketing company I work for is actually running a campaign for the new Pandora message board (Powered by Energizer)and John Brown's Body is currently the featured artist. You can check it out here: youcastcorp.com/energizer/pandora

Hello, all this is an old school reggae song and i have been looking for this song. Part of the song goes like this "I love her so for the world to see do you believe in me" and part goes like this "they said home is where i lay my head at it doesnt matter unless your mine forever".

If any one knows the song and artist please let me know.
