Lovers Rock is Britain's main contribution to reggae. A style which developed in the UK in the 1970s, Lovers Rock represented an apolitical counterpoint to the conscious Rastafarian sound dominant in Jamaica. Rooted in the Sound Systems of South London, the style had particular appeal amongst women and produced many female stars including Carol Thompson[?], Louisa Marks[?] and Janet Kay[?], who went on to reach Number 2 in the UK pop charts with "Silly Games" in 1979.
