Bob Marley Songs: A Soundtrack to Travel

Reggae music (especially the music of Bob Marley) is synonymous with the backpacker lifestyle. Find a beach town, find a backpacker haven, find a popular tourist spot, and you’re sure to find a reggae bar. Find a hostel, find a popular street, find a beach, and you’re sure to hear the familiar strains of a Bob Marley’s reggae music wafting through the air. It makes sense. If you think about it, the Rastafarian and backpacker ways of life share many details: dreadlocks, rejection of material things, pot.

Here are five Bob Marley songs that are a familiar soundtrack to any true backpacker:

 

No Woman, No Cry

No, woman, no cry,
No, woman, no cry.
‘Ere, little darlin’, don’t she’d no tears,
No, woman, no cry.

 

Jammin’

Oh, yeah, well, alright
We’re jammin’
I want to jam it with you
We’re jammin’, jammin’
And I hope you like jammin’ too

 

One Love

One Love! One Heart!
Let’s get together and feel all right.

 

I Shot The Sheriff

I shot the sheriff, but I didn’t shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!
I shot the sheriff, but I didn’t shoot no deputy, ooh, ooh, ooh

 

Get Up, Stand Up

Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!
