The Top Ten

1 No 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 just such a warm, pleasant song.

2 Three Little Birds

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

In the top 10 songs of all time Bob Marley at his best.

3 Redemption 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

This is best Bob Marley song. I've tried those two songs a lot times. But none of them can beat this song - zxm

4 One 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.

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.

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

Umm... why is this not number 1? Regardless of my mood, listening to "One Love" brightens my day like no other song in the world. The BBC ranked it the #1 song of the 20th century... enough said :-}

5 Buffalo Soldier

very very very good song. I really appreciate all bob marley songs specially this one. Great song and I always listen to it even if I'm busy. - joshsanz

Just love this... It shows his respect for the soldiers

6 Jammin'

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 just so good, I always listen it when I'm sad. It makes me happy!

7 Is 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

I think it is top 3 song unanimous. No women no cry is way simplier Than this, and has deeper meanings.

8 I Shot The Sheriff

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!

This should be at the top not the bottom its epic ad so cool rock on fans

My best friend's favorite song of all time. Timeless... Great

9 Get 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

You can fool some people sometimes, but you can't fool all the people all of the time, so now we see the light (what you gonna do? ), we gonna stand up for our rights!

A song of inspiration it is my energy

10 Could 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.

The Contenders

11 Stir 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

Very detailed and beautiful song! Its got lots of little sounds that just make it sound so full and "live".

12 War

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!

19 Don't Worry Be Happy Don't Worry Be Happy

Shouldn't be on the list, Bob Marley didn't sing it, in fact he died a decade before its released. The song belongs to Bobby McFerrin

This song is great, love this song, could be the best song from bob marley... *sarcasm* why is this even on the list?!?!

Don't worry about a thing, cause every little thing gonna be alright... love

Happiness is great. great topic to sing about

20 High Tide or Low Tide High 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.
