Which song do you consider being the best Reggae-song of all time?
Like the title says.

Personally, mine is Lee Perry's dubversion Fisherman Dub, originally made by The Congos (known as "Row Fisherman").
I know there are more than one version of it, but this is the one:

What about you? Smile

You can only pick one!
Natural Mystic - Bob Marley
'The purpose of life is a life of purpose' - Athena Orchard.
To my mind there are 2 kinds of reggae songs--those written as reggae and those adapted.
Red, Red Wine Bob Marley
Pressure Drop Toots and the Maytals: [URL=""]
BTW what's the bright line between reggae, ska and rock-steady?
A man accustomed to hear only the echo of his own sentiments, soon bars all the common avenues of delight, and has no part in the general gratification of mankind--Dr. Johnson
What he said. Amen, Bro--JazzboCR
No Woman No Cry by Bob!
 The ultimate connection is between a performer and its' audience!
not really into Reggae but the first ones that come to mind are three by Desmond Dekker in "the israelites", "it mek" and "you can get it if you really want"

also,one of Marley's comes straight to my mind "no woman no cry"

two that werent really reggae but covered by reggae/ska artists are

"i shot the sheriff"...Bob Marley
"red red wine"........UB40

Kaya is a great Marley album overall IMO. This has nothing to do with that, being a bit of a mixup, and Sting gets a bit screechy, but I always liked the energy RR brings to this performance.
