These two songs that I chose to share with you all are my two favorite Bob Marley songs of all time. These songs move me for two different reasons. First of all, Satisfy My Soul was so exquisitely written. The lyrics are simple, but it is their simplicity that add so much meaning to this song. Secondly, why I enjoy Redemption Song is because of the moving history behind this song. When Bob Marley wrote this song, he had already been diagnosed with the cancer that would later claim his life. As Rita Marley stated "he was already secretly in a lot of pain and dealt with his own mortality, a feature that is clearly apparent in the album, particularly in this song." The pain and fear Bob Marley must have been feeling at this point in his life is so present in this song and the fact that he was able to be vulnerable and share his heart through the song makes it only more beautiful. We need to be hearing more music like this in the world today and there is some out there, deep in corners and alcoves of the music industry. I wonder if the day will come when I turn on the radio and hear music with meaning. Music with purpose. Music with a message. I don't know when that day will come but until then, you will definitely find that kind of music on That Good Good Blog.
