Rastaman Vibration – Bob Marley and the Wailers

Leave a comment Standard

I can’t comment. Dunno what’s going on, but I’m going to reinstall Chrome.

Everyone knows Bob Marley, but he’s new to me. I enjoy the positive messages and the mellow synth groove of this album.  It’s also the first of his albums to reach the “top ten”.

If you get down and you quarrel every day
You’re saying prayers to the devils, I say, wooh
Why not help one another on the way?
Make it much easier (just a little bit easier)

That until there no longer
First class and second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man’s skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes –
Me say war.

That until the basic human rights
Are equally guaranteed to all,
Without regard to race –
Dis a war.

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace,
World citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
But never attained –
Now everywhere is war – war.
