Robert Nesta Marley knew love

On Wednesday I had the pleasure of co-hosting a great show on music with 12Kyle. 12K ever so prepared sent me a list of questions to prep for the show, one of the questions was:

What is the R&B song that reminds you of your past (or present) significant other?
While I do have a R&B song that reminds me of the Mr. another song really brings me right to our years together as a couple that would be Bob Marley's "Stir it Up". It is a truly beautiful song and it expresses the emotions of being in love with a woman, the kind of love that says I really can't live without you. Don't believe me listen here:

How can you not want to slob down a man that says "Quench me when I'm thirsty, come and cool me down baby when I'm hot." *grabs church fan* Whooo Chile I love it.

I was going to let it go until @12kyle started up again on twitter,( poor @SauleWright was an innocent bystander in it all) and so instead of tweeting them songs all day I'm going to post my favorites right here and they can click and LEARN about love by Bob Marley. Enjoy!

Now that's Love, you satisfy my soul... oh darling I'm calling.

I wanna love you, I wanna love, love and treat you right every day and every night. What woman doesn't want that!

Wait you love the girl but she barely recognizes you.... Guess what Bob knew heartache too!

There are so many songs I could post but I think you get the point. I will always feel a certain warm lovey dovey way when I hear Stir it up and now you will too. :)

Ok...ok...I'll give you the props. This is a nice song. I'm not into reggae at all but this is cool. Much respect to the legend...Mr. Bob Marley!

I have a huge collection of Marley music, even some of his older roots reggae sounding stuff, but I limit my listening time...I can only listen to reggae when it's warm. LOL, I'm so sincere. I can't get into it at all when it's cold. Not only that, apparently (based on you showing light) I haven't been "listening" I've just been hearing. I'm going to make sure to turn my own headphones up...when it gets warm again. :) Good post!

Kyle...smh lol

If "Waiting in Vain" wasn't on this list, I would have protested. I missed the show, so sorry. I've been all over the place lately.

Consider me schooled. Never took the time to listen to these lyrics. Thanks for broadening my lyrical knowledge book :-).

I have all these songs in my playlist and never really listened to the words. That is so unlike me, but my favorite Bob Marley song is "Redemption Song." *shrug*
