The Best Of Marley
Yesterday,after listening to some Marley -(on what else but my new love the Ipod) a friend and I had a discussion on what would make our Marley top 5.Pretty tough ask,right? Anyway,at the risk of being blasphemous neither of us cared much for Redemption Song or One Love. We both agreed that "ride natty ride" and "so much trouble in the world" would top our list.We parted ways on "crazy baldheads" and couldn't decide if "exodus" which we both liked would make the cut.
I decided on the following 5 as my favorites:
Ride natty Ride
So much Trouble
Just outside of the five would be:Is this love,Exodus and Africa Unite.Your job now is to list your top 5.Let the fun begin.
so my top 5 would be in no particular order
who the cap fit
them belly full
1)Natty Dread, 2)Rebel Music, 3)Caya, 4)Comin' in from the Cold, and 5)Smile Jamaica.
Small Axe, Belly Full, etc. hard 2 leave out, but had 2 find a way 2 narrow it down. This post was fun.
Three Little Birds
Coming In From The Cold
Nuh Woman Nuh Cry
Who The Cap Fit
Robert Nesta Marley (Bob), the greatest reggae legend.
In no particular order the others are
-Exodus (cause of the movement of Jah peoples)
-No Woman nuh cry
-3 little birds
-Waiting in vain
(a bonus since it is so modified: the ATB mix of 'Sun is shining' if you have not heard it yet check it out and then let me know what you think - it always gets my feet tapping.
An aside: Abeni NY is not mad cause they have her man NY is mad because she is CRAZY
Never heard The ATB mix but I'll check it out.
1. Natural Mystic
2. Wi Jammin (if a suh it name)
3. Three Little Birds
4. No woman nuh cry
5. Redemption song.
