The Top Ten

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"
[Newest]Amazingly sung & with heart touching words hats off to sir bob marley

2Three 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
[Newest]One of my all time fave songs!

3Redemption 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
[Newest]Best song sense of independence in it

4Buffalo Soldier
I'm really really love this too...

Specially, you're feel like you're flying to heaven!

It's too catchy not to be my favorite! It's the song that you do want to be stuck in your head! Love it!
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.


[Newest]His music is great, why is this not on the very to?

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.
[Newest]I only heard it recently but I love it!

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
[Newest]To nice song and Singer I listen always

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
[Newest]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!
[Newest]A great memory song from my youth

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
[Newest]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).
[Newest]This song is very good

The Contenders

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.


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


[Newest]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
[Newest]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

15Waiting In Vain
WHAT? I think this is the best of mr marley. I don't support my opinion. everyone likes his own music. but guys please take some time too listen to this song carefully
I've been in love with this jam for years now, listen to it everyday... It soothes the heart. Anyone can feel the depth of this song when they hear it, it's my favorite ever. Voice unlike no other - thank you for this... Ill always bump this tune. Hope ya'll do 2


Whatever The List Says This Is My Most Favorite Song Of Marley.. Awesome Song!
[Newest]I think this is Bob's second greatest jam after "Stir it Up".

16Mellow Mood
Bob is the best
"Strike the hammer while the iron is hot" says it all. Great song, Great Man
By far my favorite song ever

17A Lalala Long
This is not Bob Marley it is Inner Circle. And by the way it is called Sweat (A Lalala Long)
The best rythim I have listened
This song is so kickass, its happy and relaxing at the same time!

18Bam Bhole Nath
This song takes me to a ride to Kailash...

Beautiful song on Lord Shiva!
This song is not by bob marley this is by jai uttal.

19Sun Is Shining
And the weather is sweet! Best song for a good day
Its an amazing song! Puts you in a really good mood
This is the only Bob marley song I use to wake and bake each morning
Keeping me happy with your music forever

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!
