Bob Marley – Waiting In Vain

Bob Marley – Waiting In Vain

Like I said
It’s been three years since I’m knockin’ on your door, and I still can knock some more
Ooh girl, ooh girl, is it feasible? I wanna know now, for I to knock some more
Ya see, in life I know there’s lots of grief, but your love is my relief
Tears in my eyes burn – tears in my eyes burn
While I’m waiting – while I’m waiting for my turn, see
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love, I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love’

I am still patiently awaiting the Marley documentary to appear in Dutch theaters or the internet, after it’s US release on 4/20. In the meantime, we’ll just keep playing some of his many works, where this one would def be in my top 5. Bob Marley & The Wailers for their 9th album Exodus from 1977. Much of Exodus was recorded in London, while Marley recuperated from an assassination attempt. The success of the album propelled Marley to international stardom (Wikipedia). The album was rated best album of the 20th century by Time, and VH1’s 26th and Rolling Stone’s 169th best album of all time. Also plenty of covers have been done, for example this one below which is a very well done, even more soothing, version by Andy Allo.
