Hey brother, what's your favorite Marley song?

Post by wing » Tue Jun 08, 2004 12:51 pm

For me, "Zimbabwe" always does it. That's a beautiful song if you ask me.

There is also this song, "Guava Jelly"... I love his singing on that.

Guava Jelly...good stuff. I'm a big fan of Concrete Jungle, Johhny Was, and Rastaman Vibrations.

Has anyone heard Charlie Hunter's remake of the Natty Dread album? It's pretty incredible.

Not only is "Waiting In Vain" my favorite Marley song, it's one of my all-time favorite songs. Every time I hear it I want to cry. It's amazing.

"High Tide, Low Tide" is pretty awesome too.

I'm sensitive.

Is there one called 'You Could be Loved'? That's it. Catchy tunage.

I love the guitar + organ intro to that track (if you're talking about the one I'm talking about). I yearn to sample that someday.
