Rolling Stone's Top 50 Bob Marley Songs

Postby JimmyJazz » Mon Apr 07, 2014 6:17 am

I so far can't find this on the Internet, but I have seen the issue in a few stores. If somebody with a Rolling Stone subscription could post the list, it would be great! :music-rockon:

The list is in a special issue of RS devoted to Marley that's on sale now in the U.S. It's too expensive to buy unless you're really into Bob - and have $12.99 left over after buying your weed - but if I have a chance to transcribe it at a bookstore, I'll post it. A couple of teasers: "No Woman No Cry" is not #1 (it's #2, behind "Get Up, Stand Up"), and - much to the surprise of fraternity bros everywhere, I'm sure - "Jamming" barely scrapes into the top 40.

Another surprise: one track from Legend ("Satisfy My Soul") is missing.

Minor quibble I'm sure, but I think 'Could you be loved' could be higher.
I really love that song though, one of my top five for Bob Marley

Redemption Song might be my favorite. It's gonna rise in the rankings practically certainly.
I feel like that
