    Bob Marley Day (he died this day on 11 May 1981)

    Rastafarians all the way through celebrate the departure of who they consider as a prophet (Nesta Robert "Bob" Marley)

    Bob Marley Inspirational Quotes:

    1. Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you're living?
    2. Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!
    3. Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don't give up the fight.
    4. The harder the battle the sweet of jah victory.
    5. Don't gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold
    6. When one door is closed, don't you know, another is open.
    7. My music fights against the system that teaches to live and die.
    8. Tell the children the truth.

    9. Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war.
    And until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war.
    And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war.

    Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
    None but ourselves can free our mind
    Woh, have no fear for atomic energy
    'Cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time

    How long shall they kill our prophets
    While we stand aside and look?
    Yes, some say it's just a part of it
    We've got to fullfill the book
    Won't you help to sing
    These songs of freedom?

    Nesta Robert "Bob" Marley, (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican singer-songwriter and musician. He was the rhythm guitarist and lead singer for the ska, rocksteady and reggae band Bob Marley & The Wailers (1963–1981).

    Marley remains the most widely known and revered performer of reggae music, and is credited with helping spread both Jamaican music and the Rastafarian movement to a worldwide audience.

    Bob Marley was born in the village of Nine Mile in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica as Nesta Robert Marley. A Jamaican passport official would later swap his first and middle names. His father, Norval Sinclair Marley, was a white Jamaican of English descent whose family came from Essex, England. Norval was a captain in the Royal Marines, as well as a plantation overseer, when he married Cedella Booker, an Afro-Jamaican then 18 years old. Norval provided financial support for his wife and child, but seldom saw them, as he was often away on trips. In 1955, when Marley was 10 years old, his father died of a heart attack at age 60.

    Born to black mother and white father Marley faced questions about his own racial identity throughout his life. He once reflected:

    “I don't have prejudice against meself. My father was a white and my mother was black. Them call me half-caste or whatever. Me don't dip on nobody's side. Me don't dip on the black man's side nor the white man's side. Me dip on God's side, the one who create me and cause me to come from black and white.”

    To me:

    Marley wasn’t singing about how peace could come easily to the World but rather how hell on Earth comes too easily to too many. His songs were his memories; he had lived with the wretched, he had seen the downpressers and those whom they pressed down.
    Guys as we’re not sure of the next step of our life always and only Bob Marley can be right in this regard as he sings beautifully and in Jamaican accent: TIME LL TELL.
    ‘Gone forever but you will never be forgotten Bob!

    Old pirates yes they rob I
    Sold I to the merchant ships
    Minutes after they took I from the bottom-less pit
    But my hand was made strong
    By the hand of the almighty
    We forward in this generation triumphantly
    Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom
    Cause all I ever had redemption songs, redemption songs
    Emancipate yourself from the mental slavery
    None but ourselves can free our minds
    Have no fear for atomic energy
    Cause none a them can stop the time
    How long shall they kill our prophets
    While we stand aside and look
    Some say it's just a part of it
    We've got to fulfill the book
    Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom
    Cause all I ever had redemption songs, redemption songs
    Emancipate yourselves from the mental slavery
    None but ourselves can free our minds
    Have no fear for atomic energy
    Cause none a them can stop the time
    How long shall they kill our prophets
    While we stand aside and look
    Yes some say it's just a part of it
    We've got to fulfill the book
    Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom
    Cause all I ever had redemption songs
    All I ever had, redemption songs
    These songs of freedom, songs of freedom

    No woman no cry
    No woman no cry
    oh my little sister dont she d no tears
    no woman no cry.

    I remember when we used to sit
    in the government yard in Trenchtown
    and then Georgie would make the fire light
    log wood burning through the night
    then we would cook corn meal porridge
    of which i will share with you
    my feet is my only carrige
    so i 've got to push an through
    but while i'm gone
    Everything gonna be alright........
    Everything gonna be alright........

    Tarehe 21 May 2001 BBC waliutangaza wimbo wake Wa 'One love' kama best song of all time baada ya kuendesha mahojiano na wapenzi wa muziki. Naomba mwenye mistari ya huu wimbo ayaweke hapa jamvini ili iwe ndiyo namna ya kumuenzi huyu gwiji wa reggae duniani

    Let's get together and feel all right
    I'm pleading to mankind (One Love)
    Oh Lord (One Heart)

    Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
    Let's get together and feel all right
