    General CommentI enjoy listening to reggea music a lot. The sound and feelings the music expresses truly inspires me but what does Babylon exactly mean? I understand Baylon is an ancient city in Mesopotamia and played an important role in the Bible as the symbol of all evil, as well as for the Rastafari's, but does anyone have any more insight? And what does it mean to you personatly?
