25 Bob Marley songs better than Legend

The Honorable Robert Nesta Marley

Now, there are two types of Bob Marley fans out there.  There’s the kind who pop on Bob Marley’s Legend in the summertime and rock out while drinking some Red Stripes by the beach, and there are those of us who celebrate his entire catalogue.  Now, there are some good songs on Legend, Exodus and Redemption Song for example, but for the most part, its pop-reggae that lacks the political message that his life and music represented.  For the most part Legend is what you’ll hear at frat parties and bars that also play Dave Matthews Band and Jimmy Buffett.  So without further ado, here are 25 Bob Marley songs better than the Legend album(in no particular order:

1. Kaya

2. Sun Is Shining

3. Mr. Brown

4. Concrete Jungle

5. Soul Rebel

6. Slave Driver

7. Kinky Reggae

8. No More Trouble

9. Rasta Man Chant

10. Duppy Conqueror

11. Burnin’ and Lootin’

12. Them Belly Full

13. Natty Dread

14. Positive Vibration

15. Rebel Music

16. Crazy Baldhead

17. Natural Mystic

18. Punky Reggae Party

19. Lively Up Yourself

20. War / No More Trouble

21. Soul Shakedown Party

22. Rat Race

23. Mellow Mood

24. Bend Down Low

25. Trenchtown Rock

The songs I added videos for are what I consider the best of the best, whereas the songs I emboldened are personal favorites of mine that don’t get enough appreciation.

Bonus:

for this weeks bonus, I will add Bob’s acoustic medley.  It does include some songs from Legend, but it also has some deep cuts that are often underappreciated:
