dc.description.abstractThrough a detailed evaluation of source materials, this research project sought to document mainstream pop tunes that featured a reggae influence between the years of 1970-1990. Using The Police (band) as a model, this process attempted to identify other artists that used reggae characteristics during this time period to increase popularity of their songs and albums and capitalize upon this style. In order to create this discography, it was essential to measure the popularity of the songs in question. Most sources were found through a focused search of Billboard chart archives in categories such as: Pop, Adult Contemporary, and Rock. After reviewing the Billboard chart archives, an assessment was made based on general reggae characteristics. Potential sources were cataloged into a final discography of additional artists using significant reggae characteristics at this time.en_US
