    I have another 212 acts lined up at the rate of one a week and none of them are Girls Aloud or Steps.

    I have a contract to deliver 375 non-football related posts at the rate of £50 a time and I'm going to deliver. If only people would die quicker I could use the good old RIP threads but as a fill in there is always the Top Fives.

    Thanks for posting as I only get paid if we reach 5 posts so quids in.
  • even if the 5th is yours?

    One Love

    Could you be Loved

    Trenchtown Rock

    Loads more, I know I can't count ..... love it all, such happy sunshiny music.
  • Just thought ..... I recently read Rita Marley's autobiog, "No Woman, No Cry", ghost written of course, but quite a good read.

    Tells her own story of growing up in Trenchtown, being Bob's wife and soul mate, performing with him, and spills the beans from the inside.

    Probably available on Amazon - and all good bookshops, if there are any still left.

  • have been having a Marley-fest since I read this thread yesterday...

    not sure if I can come up with a top 5 though

    - War got me going...

    - Coming in from the Cold too

    but...er...anyway...

    does anyone know the connection between the unfortunately Millwall supporting Danny Baker and the great Bob Marley?

    I really couldn't believe it when I heard....
  • My favourite ever artist, couldn't narrow it to five, but No Woman No Cry is my favourite song of all time.

    A bit of a joke from the Baker boy TBH but the Marley died from supposedly died from cancer linked to a foot injury. Baker said that while playing for the NME v The Wailers he stood on Marley's foot and injured him and so "killed" him.

    Go on, try to say which five. fascinating to hear which songs different people like, which era, style etc.

  • pretty much...

    Baker broke Marley's toe in that game......

    and Marley's cancer started in his foot... making many people claim that 'Danny Baker killed Bob Marley'...

    apparently the condition pre-dated the match though....
  • In Rita Marley's book (see my previous post), she does say that while playing football, Bob got a toe injury that wouldn't heal.

    He was later diagnosed with a Melanoma in that toe - and advised to allow the toe to be amputated, thus preventing the cancer spreading to the rest of his body.

    He refused to even consider it - and the cancer eventually spread to his brain and other organs, which eventually resulted in his death.

    So Rita's book says.

    What a sentimental old softie you are.

  • I don't know what it is about him and that style of music, but it can either make me completely relaxed, happily energetic or powerfully emotional.

    The music just seems to 'fit' with whatever mood i'm in.

    Yeah me too. Just hits the spot.

    Listening to more and more "Roots and Culture" reggae these days. Congos, Burning Spear, etc

    Weird! at the very moment I read that I was listening to Big Youth's version of Marcus Garvey and thinking "I haven't got much Big Youth. Will have to find some more of his stuff."

    Any other Reggae worth listening too of that era, Ralph? Got a few of the usual things but always keen to try out more.
  • Big Youth - Screaming Target
    I Roy - Presenting I Roy
    Dillinger - CB200
    Jah Lion - Columbian Colly
    Lee Perry - Super Ape
    King Tubby - Meets the Rockers Uptown
    Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey
    Burning Spear - Man In The Hills
    Dennis Brown - Wolf And Leopards
    Max Romeo - War In A Babylon

    Enjoy.
