The Top Ten

No Woman, No Cry - Bob Marley
Common bob marley is THE reggae legend
Jah bless people jah bless
Bob marley is a legend and legends never die
I think this is the best yet
Best reggae song in the world! Has the original reggae feel to it! I love it. And honestly Santeria is not reggae... Not at all. No organ no soulful lyrics nothing...
[Newest]Its called No Woman, Doh Cry

2Buffalo Soldier - Bob Marley
I absolutely love this song I'm listening to it now
This is Bob Marley's best song. It should be number 1
Its very well sung and the lyrics are very good
[Newest]I think it is a awesome song love it :]

3Santeria - Sublime
It's just... Beautiful, even when the lyrics are about killing a Mexican dude...
this is the best of sublime. Should be higher than no. 4!
It´s a soft and unmistakable sound
[Newest]The vocals in this song are perfect

4Welcome to Jamrock - Damian Marley
True modern day Reggae. His father must be very proud
It's not reggae, it's called dancehall, wrong list guys. Besides, welcome to jamrock is two ripoffs in one. The beat stolen directly from one song, lyrics and flow from another. I'm a give Damien Marley fan but this is far from his best work.


Just gimme the light so I can smoke some wed!
[Newest]Very nice song...the sons of bob

Cmon who doesn't think of this song when they think of reggae?

12Kingston Town - UB40
This is the best reggae song ever it deserves the number 1 spot! It just has a story behind it..
Amazing song, it can turn you from angry to happy and relaxed, there is magic in Kingston Town.

13True Love - Soldiers of Jah Army
Soja is my favourite band! I really love their music!
Best contemporary reggae song
Man this is a lovely song, must be in the first ten!

"I need true love
Do you know what you mean to me?
Does it show as I live and I breath?
In the valley of the shadow, I know you'll be.
I defense, I conquer death
I conquer the enemy (envy)"

14Redemption Song - Bob Marley
I listened to this when I went to the Hundred Islands in the Philippines while I was on a boat, with my hand feeling the water as we pass by. I see the sand, the sky, the trees, the islands. I feel the air, the water, the peace within me. I breathe in the sea, the cool air. I heard the sea, I heard the birds, I heard the boat, and I heard and felt Bob Marley's soul. It felt so good to be alive.

When I listend to this song, I need not to close my eyes to remember being in paradise. Paradise is not a place, it is when you feel inner peace and the gratefulness to be alive. It was great that I was also in a place that matched what I felt at the time.

You could feel his heart and soul in this song. I think this should be in the top 10.
This is my 1 of my favorite songs and most when it comes to reggae,.
Probably Bob Marley's best song, and it's not on the list?
[Newest]This should be in the top ten hands down
