Best Bob Marley Songs


The Top TenXW

1No Woman, No Cry

Beauty of song lies in bob marley's painful voice, obviously his every song is masterpiece but this one will always remain at the top of bunch

That's the very best song I have ever heard and I want this song to be played at my funeral

"I love it, each time I come back from school I listen to this"

It's the best song.

my old gr 6 teacher used to ALWAYS play this song in class and if we wanted to go home he'd make the whole class sing it. it touches my heart whenever I hear it and it makes me think of him too. RIP MR ANDREW MYHAL!

When I have a bad day, I just listen to this song and forget about my troubles. I get lost in the groove of this song and just picture myself on a beach with Bob Marley himself. Bob Marley is the king of music. -M

Amazing song which I could listen to ALL day I can play it on the keyboard

I like this song.

4Redemption Song

"None but ourselves can free our mind. " This song is timeless, and one of my favourite songs by the legend. But it is hard to say it's my favourite since there are so many songs and versions. So beautiful.

The greatest acoustic song ever. Very meaningful lyrics. My favorite line is "have no fear for atomic energy, because non of them can stop the time".

It was about him coming to terms with his death, for christs sake! How is it not the top of the list

Number 4 is far too low. While I love and appreciate all of the songs present on the list this is without a doubt his best.

5One Love/People Get Ready

"lets get together and feel alright "
Getting together and feeling alright, I wonder what that means?
I Guess bob marley feels alright.

One of the best songs out and glee recently sang it so cool I think :}

My personal favorite. It embodies everything I love about that easygoing down on the beach mentality. I could listen to this song, sitting on the beach with my girl all day long.

Although this song is one of the shortest songs that Marley every wrote, I believe it is his most meaningful voice. If everyone listened to this and the music was able to get inside their souls, the world would be a VERY peaceful place and we would all live together in harmony. Now that would be a utopia. This song is a real vision of ZION. A utopia coming true.

6Is This Love

This is the best song of bob marley Cmon

this is an awesome song I could see this song in almost all romantic comedy movies so good so sexy...!

This needs to be much higher on the list, so catchy and beautiful. Not provocative like today's music, it's good to hear something like this nowadays

Such a catchy, enjoyable tune, with very rhythmically pleasing lyrics

This song always got me in the best of moods and that's what it will do till the damn day I die. It reminds me of everything I did when I was little when I heard it playing.

Best song; has been incorporated in many forms of media and numerous references have been made in regards to the awesomeness of this song. It also has the most compelling tune in the background when it comes to Marley's music.

Amazing song. Makes me thinking about hopping that flight to the islands. Burn em if you got em

This song is my work song, good message and vibe

8I Shot The Sheriff

Awesome song..
'he say kill it, kill it before it grow'!

huh? why is this so low?
thiis song is so kickass

It is a song with a great message. It is originated from the 60's USA when there was great discrimination and hate toward the Jews and Negroes, especially the Jews. They said that the Jews were trying to establish a New World Order (NWO) and were behind a Judeo-Masonic-Communist conspiracy against the Goyim, or Gentiles (Non-Jews). And the negroes were called niggers. What a mess up! This shouldn't be happening in a country which said that they were the examples and the greatest democracy in the world! Hail Hitler!

Well cram what are guys thinking? Best song ever

9Get Up, Stand Up

There is no other song you can sing until you come face to face with some force that can oppress you. If its the State, the Government, the Police, a singular bastard, or a psychopath, until you have been pushed too far by prejudice or overwhelming force you will not understand this song or its meaning. It is important for everybody to Get up and stand up for your rights, and never give in to the forces of oppression and mediocrity. Sooner or later everyone returns to God, but your here to fight for justice so that one day God will be proud of you. Amen.

Good song inspirational and motivating - great for all of us who fight for human rights and justice

This was the national anthem for oppress people to get up and stand up for yourself and your people especially when obama was running for president

This is the Song with I grow Up!

10Could You Be Loved

My favorite song in the world. Makes me feel like no other can. The man could do no wrong. He died before I was born but I feel fortunate for the music he left my generation.

this is an awesome song. must be higher, for me this is the best music he wrote.
talks about love and respect for the others.

simply the best song he has ever written. Such energy, such passion that you can see in his early work (not that there's anything wrong the older).

How is this not #1? Without a doubt the best reggae song ever.

11Stir It Up

Best Bob Marley song ever! This song stirs something good up in me every time I listen to it.

Absolutely amazing! This needs to be number 1! Enough said.

Why this song isn't on the list. One of bob marley's classic song from his first album. - joshsanz

I used to wake up to this song a couple months ago... And I still love it. It makes me feel high without weed. - thetoptens21

I can't express how much I love this man, but I can give you a link to the most relaxing, peaceful song in the history of songs

This song must be the number one! "until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes, there is a war"

What a beautiful lyric, full of meaning. Like a Poem. If we were more intelligent to not judge someone because of the colour of the skin. If we just understand that being different is pretty not dangerous and we have the same blood. You may say I'm a dreamer like Bob Marley was.

Has anyone really listened to this song? The words. OMG. One of his best, so meaningful and powerful. google lyrics

The message is timeless... The music is so powerful!

Perfect riddim and it was something like "discover" in reggae

We know where we're going', we know where we're from.
WE'RE LEAVING BABYLON! We're going to our fatherland.

14Ganja Gun

Its a great song... I just smoke weed and listen to this song all day...

One of the best songs ever that will take your Highness to the world of peace and weed...

This, song, makes you feel high even without smokin' weed! Best song by my man Marley

Those how love bob is ganja gun

20High Tide or Low Tide

Bob's most underrated song... It's his greatest song in my opinion but it's by far the saddest. I don't think many of you even heard of it but I really recommend you look it up.

Can Listen all day long

This song is a beauty!
