If you haven’t heard of Bob Marley then there is something wrong with you – FACT! In all the 1o countries I visited whilst travelling, I can hand on my heart say there wasn’t any other artist that was played more than the rasta legend himself. Even in the remotest of places you could hear the revolutionary sounds of Bob Marley, which just goes to show how influential and powerful his music has become worldwide.
Bob Marley is generally best remembered for his songs about social justice and revolution, but his collection of love songs are equally worth remembering. From light and airy rocksteady tunes about teen romance to rich, intense reggae ballads about mature love.
Is This Love has to be my favourite:
I wanna love you and treat you right;
I wanna love you every day and every night…
I love the lyrics with a passion. It sums up perfectly that slight delusional feeling of first love where you fantasize about your life together, your children’s names and who they will look like! That butterfly feeling of uncertainty, that we all know so well, as too whether this love will last forever.
It’s one of those songs that makes you realize that, despite it all, pretty much everyone in the world goes through the same thing when they’re falling in love for the first time – that feeling makes us all equal.
It’s for that reason that Is This Love is a PERFECT choice for your first dance – expecially if your first love did last forever.
Happy Monday you Lovely People
