Happy Bday, Bob Marley!

BobMarley

 

Nesta Robert Marley, OM, pka “Bob Marley”, was born February 6, 1945 and passed on May 11, 1981.  He is an icon in reggae music and is credits with helping the spread of both Jamaican music and the Rastafari movement throughout the world.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  As such, rather than post original recordings of Bob Marley performing, I figured that I’d share some of my favorite covers and renditions of those songs that he made so famous.  In no particular order, here they are:

NOTE:  If any of the video links don’t work, please comment such, I’ll find a replacement.

Good music, is always good music, regardless of who sings the song.

Young bud nuh know storm (experience teaches wisdom).  Respect, Bob.
