Misty Morning don't see no sun
I know you're out there somewhere, Having fun
There is one mystery, I just can't express
To give you more, to recive your less
One of my good friends said, In a reggae rhythm,
don't jump in the water, If you can't swim
The power of philosophy, floats thru my head
you're light like a feather, heavy as lead

The time has come, I want you
I want you to straighten out my tomorrow
I want, I want, I want
I want you to starighten out my tomorrow

Misty morning, don't see no sun
know you're out there some where, having fun
mysteries, I just can't express
how could you ever give more to recive your less
like my good friend said in a reggae rhythm
you can't jump in the water, if you can't swim

I want you, I want you to straighten out my today
my tomorrow, I want you to straighten out my tomorrow

On a misty morning, I want you to straighten out my
tomorrow, I want you to straighten out my tomorrow

Time to back off the reggae and switch to PSD.
Man, this just ruined my buzz from the previous Eno tune.

This sounds so similar to Exodus, which in turn sounds a lot like Buffalo soldier. 

 
Well, not all...

This one feels pretty formulaic and going-through-the-motions...

Don't like Jamaica...I love her.

I think this will make Candela's day up North.

This is my favorite BM work, one of those rare recordings where every song is fantastic.

LOVE IT!

Trying to figure out why I like this one more than most reggae. What makes it different?
Perhaps the signature 2-4 beat accents are less pronounced in this tune, and it's coupled with strong melodic horns that are not accenting the reggae beat?

I think Marley is so good he sort of transcends Reggae. I'm not that crazy about reggae generally. But I'm not sure what about him cuts through. Some of it is his integrity and emotive qualities shine through but that's not the sum total of the effect.

Nope, it's the guitar, bass and horns. They be jammin' (jammin'), to think that jammin' was a thing of the past...

Bleh.
Classic! lyrical and instrumental Bob at his best... 'straighten out my tomorrow' :sunny:
This is the first time I've heard this other than from my turntable....It's been years! Thank You! :notworthy:
As good as it gets! 10/10
He's done better... This sounds like he's trying to shake off some kind of ganja hangover.
This is just too damn similar to Jammin'.

Don't get so defensive. I never meant to imply that "I Shot the Sheriff" is a bad song, or is lacking in any way. The comment had nothing to do with the "power" of the song (I agree with you there). The original comment had to do with "reggae for beginners". I'd lay money that if you ask most uneducated reggae listeners to name their top 3 favorite raggae tunes, "I Shot the Sheriff" would be right up there at the top of the list. It's a good song that's very accessible to uninitiated raggae listeners ...beginners.
No offense taken. Thanks for the clarification. However, I'm pretty sure the original poster was not commenting on the song's popularity with the "for beginners" remark. As you say yourself, this is a lesser-known Marley track and I'm pretty sure the original poster was aware of that. While we're arguing: I'm not so sure whether I Shot the Sheriff would be considered a top 3 reggae song by "beginners". Most of them would associate it with Eric Clapton, not exactly the world's biggest reggae artist. I think people will choose typical Marley hits such as One Love, No Woman No Cry or Could You Be Loved. (Hell, maybe even Dreadlock Holiday by 10cc.)

You got to be kidding me! :rolleyes: The original I Shot the Sheriff (off Burnin') is a deep, meaningful and explicit call-to-arms for the oppressed and downtrodden. The fact that it was popularized by Eric Clapton does not detract from the original's power.

Just because a song can draw in listeners who weren't previously listeners of a certain genre of music doesn't necessarily make it a bad song. I've always thought that "I Shot the Sheriff" was great, but I still stand by my original comment. You mention that Misty morning is B-side material. Funny that it should also be considered beginner material since B-side tunes are typically songs that are only sought out by die hard fans not "beginners".

I'm not so sure about this comment. This might not be Marley's greatest effort ever, but it's definitely a more of a "deep" cut that's lesser known and played. Now if you said the same thing with regards to"I Shot The Sheriff", then I'd definitely have to agree with you.

it hurts to rate marley below an 8, but this one's not doin it for me...

As much as it pains me, I have to agree. There are so many better Marley tracks. Kaya is definitely my least favourite album of his. I can't believe I actually rated a Marley track a 4, but there it is. :sad:
Sorry, but don't jump in the water, if you can't swim!!

I've been to Jamaica three times. I think many people don't get the island vibe until they've been there and done that. I don't think it's the best thing on the planet, but it sure expresses the culture and is a great backdrop to a great island nation. Can I have some more, mon? :D
Irie, mon! Been there too, you are so right. :daisy:

Well actually I have tried to like Reggae. I listen when ever it's on to see if there is something I like. Alas very rarely do I. I am not saying it is bad music. I am sayin it is bad music for me.

I should start an "I hate Reggae Fan Club" here on RP. If I charged $10 for dues, I would be rich in no time....

Whoa, wait a minute - I didn't attack anyone personally - I expressed my opinion about this song and genre. My personal opinion, not a fact that you can argue. Aren't these comment boards in existence so people can say good and bad things about music?
