Forewer For World - Bob Marley / Music
We remember the brilliant and evocative music Bob Marley gave the world; music that stretches back over nearly two decades and still remains timeless and universal. Marley has been called “the first Third World superstar,” “Rasta Prophet,” “visionary,” and” “revolutionary artist.” These accolades were not mere hyperbole. Marley was one of the most charismatic and challenging performers of our time.
Bob Marley’s career stretched back over twenty years. During that time Marley’s growing style encompassed every aspect in the rise of Jamaican music, from ska to contemporary reggae. That growth was well reflected in the maturity of the Wailers’ music.
Bob’s story is that of an archetype, which is why it continues to have such a powerful and ever-growing resonance: it embodies political repression, metaphysical and artistic insights, gangland warfare and various periods of mystical wilderness. And his audience continues to widen: to westerners Bob’s apocalyptic truths prove inspirational and life-changing; in the Third World his impactgoes much further. Not just among Jamaicans, but also the Hopi Indians of New Mexico and the Maoris of New Zealand, in Indonesia and India, and especially in those parts of West Africa from which slaves were plucked and taken to the New World, Bob is seen as a redeemer figure returning to lead this.
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our mind. Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny. Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don’t give up the fight.
Every time I plant a seed, He say kill it before it grow, he say kill it before they grow. Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction. When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.
Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live! Man is a universe within himself. You have to be someone. Just can’t live that negative way...make way for the positive day! When the race gets hard to run, it means you just can’t take the pace.
My music fights against the system that teaches to live and die. My music will go on forever. Maybe it’s a fool say that, but when me know facts me can say facts. My music will go on forever. One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain. People want to listen to a message, word from Jah. This could be passed through me or anybody. I am not a leader. Messenger. The words of the songs, not the person, is what attracts people.
Love would never leave us alone. If puss and dog can get together, why can’t we love one another? Conquer the devils with a little thing called love! I want to give you some love, I want to give you some good good lovin.
