I think of most of Bob's work as a genre somewhat evolved beyond pure reggae - not superior to, just slightly different from, with different goals and aims and influences and effects.

If I look at Bob's songwriting, there are a few songs-as-songs that would be brilliant in ANY genre (I tried to do a down-tuned metal take on "3 Little Birds" but my bass player refused, perhaps wisely)

And if I was going to pick my favorite reggae-as-reggae, it probably wouldn't be Bob at all ... though it would probably be either some early Lee Perry production featuring the Upsetters, or maybe something from The Harder They Come (I know, uncool cos it's well-known, but hell, there's good tracks on there) ... I tend to listen to reggae (mainly early dub) for DAYS AND DAYS AND DAYS and then not at all for a long time, so I'm not super up on which songs are which, it's just an environment I sometimes like to hang out in ...

... sorta like the music the space-Rastas listen to in Neuromancer...? (Or is it Mona Lisa Overdrive?)

Tough choices, all great songs, but I really like Buffalo Soldier.

The voting list is horrible. You just put all of his most popular songs up there, not his best. Where's Redemption Song, African Herbsman, etc.?

I agree. not a good list, but still a list is a list. I voted "get up stand up". I have been listening to these songs too much and/or too long (if that is possible), so they all sound a bit boring now. "iron lion zion" is my favourite at the moment.

Redemption song IMO, but out of the ones on there, I'd have to pick Jammin ;D

my favourite song from Bob is Could You Be Loved.

It's the most universal, all-encompassing, and hopeful song he made.

"true love will never leave us alone, out of the darkness there must come out the light"
