UB40 – The Artist

UB40 are an English reggae and pop band, formed in 1978 in Birmingham, England. The band has had more than 50 singles in the UK Singles Chart, and has also achieved considerable international success with over 70 million records sold worldwide. The ethnic make-up of the band’s original line-up was diverse, with musicians of English, Welsh, Irish, Jamaican, Scottish and Yemeni parentage. The band’s line-up was stable for nearly 29 years, from 1979 until January, when frontman Ali Campbell left the band.

Cherry Oh Babe – The Song

Cherry Oh Babe is a 1984 single by the UK reggae band UB40. It is a cover-version of a 1971 single by the Jamaican, Eric Donaldson. He submitted it to the Jamaican Festival Song Competition and won the competition and it gave him a big Jamaican hit single. “Cherry Oh Baby” has been covered by both The Rolling Stones (on their 1976 album, Black and Blue) and UB40 (on their 1983 album, Labour of Love). The rhythm (or riddim in Jamaica) has remained extremely popular – over thirty cover versions have been recorded, including an update by Donaldson himself.

The Cherry – The Shape

Modelled into the simple silhouette of a sweet or wild cherry. The two fruits are modelled to represent the happy couple. A cherry is the fruit of many plants of the genus Prunus, and is a fleshy drupe (stone fruit).
Commercial cherries are obtained from cultivars of several species, such as the sweet Prunus avium and the sour Prunus cerasus. The name ‘cherry’ also refers to the cherry tree and its wood, and is sometimes applied to almonds and visually similar flowering trees in the genus Prunus, as in “ornamental cherry” or “cherry blossom”. Wild cherry may refer to any of the cherry species growing outside cultivation, although Prunus avium is often referred to specifically by the name “wild cherry” in the British Isles.

Eric Donaldson (born 1947) is a Jamaican reggae singer-songwriter. He originated in Saint Catherine, Jamaica. He worked with amongst others  Lee “Scratch” Perry before embarking on a solo career.
