Ten Of The Best: Bob Marley (1)

What can you say about the legendary Bob Marley? A beautiful human being, incorporating the very soul of Rasta and reggae, with the voice of an angel. I suppose he's now become an institutionalised icon, and we forget the rebel he was. I could have chosen many of his songs, but I chose One Love.

One love, one heart
Let's get together and feel all right
Hear the children cryin' (one love)
Hear the children cryin' (one heart)
Sayin' give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Sayin' let's get together and feel all right

A great song from a great artist. Just listening to it was an antidote to the hate-filled, apocalyptic vision offered last night by the Republican nominee for Demagogue-in-Chief.

Thanks for this today. Am looking forward to 2 through 10! The power of human voices singing!

Looking forward to this series. Marley is a worthy inclusion.

I was amazed just now to discover that Bob's son Julian Marley is one of 9 children.

Julian Marley and the Uprising in Vienna soon.
