Happy Birthday Shane & Bob


HAPPY BIRTH DAY!
HAPPY BIRTH DAY!
HAPPY BIRTH DAY TO YOU MY DEAR!
HAPPY BIRTH DAY!

That's the Jamaican birthday song. Imagine it sung really fast with lots of clapping. Fun stuff! Friday was Shane's birthday and the drum pictured above was his gift. It's a Maroon drum called a gumbe made by a Rasta in Accompong, St. Elizabeth. Today is Bob Marley's birthday, so you are all obligated to drink a Red Stripe and toast Shane and Bob while singing along to Legend.

One Love,
Kaelyn

Legend, you've got to be kidding !!

Maybe Catch a Fire or Exodus but not Legend... Bob would be rolling in his grave

One Love
Your Dad

Well I selected Legend because I thought it would be the most accessable to our wider audience of blog readers. So Dad don't be such a Marley snob! And to our readers please choose the Bob disc of your choice. You can find the complete listing here: http://www.bobmarley.com/music/

In further defense of my choice of Legend I give you these excerpts from today's Gleaner article entitled "Marley remembered" (http://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20060206/ent/ent2.html).

"He is especially known across the world for his hit, One Love, from the album Legend which has become an unofficial anthem for Jamaica."

"Marley's songs have over time garnered more attention than most current hits. According to the Record Industry Association of America (RIAA), his album Legend has sold more than 10 million copies in 11 years on the top pop charts."
