12-4-08 Bob Marley – Stir It Up

Posted by Sean on December 4, 2008

But I don’t want to go to Mexico, Shanoah! I want to go to Jamaica! Mmmmm, jerked chicken…

Most people (like me) are more familiar with Johnny Nash‘s 1972 version of Stir It Up. But Bob Marley beat Nash by five years, when he released it as a single on his Wail’n Soul’m label in 1967.

Whoever sings it, though, it’s a very nice, mellow song. You don’t expect a song with a name like Stir It Up to be soothing. You expect something like Korn’s Let’s Get This Party Started, which, if it isn’t the theme song for the World Federation of Cage Fighters Smashing Their Heads Through Brick Walls (WFCFSTHTBW), then it should be. Marley’s got another way to stir it up, and it doesn’t involve massive geologic damage. Nice.
