90's Reggae song
It was on a reggae compilation I had a long time ago but I can't find it anywhere. It's the song "Open up your heart and let the sun shine in." You know..."Let the sun shine in, face it with a grin. Smilers never lose and frowners never win....Mommy told me something a little kid should know. Its all about the devil and I've learned to hate him so...." If you could tell me who does this reggae version and maybe what the compilation is that would be awesome! Thanks!

90's Reggae song
Artist - Frente
Title - Let The Sunshine In

Mommy told me something
A little kid should know
It's all about the devil
And I learned to hate him so
She said he causes trouble when you let him in your room
He'll never ever leave you if your heart is filled with gloom

Chorus:
So let the sun shine in
Face it with a grin
Smilers never lose
And Frowners never win
So let the sun shine in
Face it with a grin
Open up your heart and let the sun shine in

When you are unhappy
The devil wears a grin
But oh he starts to run in
When the light comes prowling in
I know he'll be unhappy
Cause I'll never wear a frown
Maybe if we keep on smiling
He'll get tired of hanging 'round
If I forget to say my prayers
The devil jumps with glee
But he feels so awful awful
When he sees me on my knees
So if you feel of trouble
And you never seem to move
Just open up your heart and let the sun shine in

(Chorus)

Suuuuun Shiiiiiine iiiiiin
Suuuuun Shiiiiiine iiiiiin

Mommy told me someting
A little kid should know
It's all about the devil
And i learned to hate him so
If I forget to say my prayers
The devil jumps with glee
But he feels so awful awful
When he sees me on my knees
So if you feel of trouble
And you never seem to move
Just open up your heart and let the sun shine in

Nope, that's not the right version (there are a ton).

I also remember this particular reggae version and it was great! Unfortunately I've also been looking for it, with no luck... come on... someone has to know the name :)

When the light comes pouring in
I know he'll be unhappy
'Cause I'll never wear a frown
Maybe if we keep on smiling
He'll get tired of hanging 'round.

If I forget to say my prayers

But he feels so awful awful

Actually those aren't the lyrics of THIS particular song.

This one has a female voice doing the singing for the most part, and then a guy comes in 2/3 of the way through to input a little "reggae" sounding part.

The lyrics posted are simply the normal song, done by a number of different artists (not to mention Pebbles and Bam Bam from the Flinstones, heh)

Yes!! That is the one I want. It's been soooo long since I've heard it but now I remember. It was on a compilation and there are 2 other songs on the compilation that I can vaguely remember but I want them too. Too bad I don't know what the compilation was called. I thought Reggae Heat or something but I can't find it anywhere.

OK!
I think I'm hot on the trail of this song... after many hours of googling. I've stumbled upon this site:
http://www.mikeboon.com/mymusic/253092a.html

And the album is called On A Reggae Trip

The song is Premier Featuring Marquise : Open Up Your Heart (And Let The Sunshine In)

After this much searching, I'm 99% sure this is it... unfortunately I can't FIND the darned thing anywhere to hear it. As I type this, I'm continuing the search to confirm this is the song.

*sigh*
I've searched, and searched, and searched some more. I can't seem to find a copy of this song to see if it's the correct one.

Anyone?

I GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After 3-4 years of searching for the NAME of this song... after 10 hours of searching for the song itself, I FINALLY found it buried on Kazaa Lite Ressurection, and got it!

Sweet Jebus, that feels good! :)

Now... to find any remixes :D
