Three Little Birds Music Video

Bob Marley’s track Three Little Birds is one of those songs that can brighten even the darkest day. Marley’s daughter Cedella asked Seed Animation Studio to create a music video for the track. Director Morgan Powell came up with a new take on the classic Big Bad Wolf fairy tale, in which peace and harmony win out over conflict.

Bob Marley music has a distinctively reggae sound. But in the hands of electronic remix artist Eclectic Method, it takes on a whole new vibe. This wonderfully chill edit was actually put together back in 2004, but the Method’s Jonny Wilson says he forgot to upload it until now.

Sting & Shaggy: Tiny Desk Concert

Two musicians with reggae riddims coursing through their veins dropped by the NPR Music studio to turn in a great mini concert featuring the tracks Englishman in New York, Don’t Make Me Wait, and a mashup of Shape of My Heart and Lucid Dreams by Juice WRLD. We were hoping for a little Boombastic or It Wasn’t Me though.

It Wasn’t Me: Tom Jones Style

Postmodern Jukebox and vocalist Ariana Savalas teamed up to transform Shaggy’s raggamuffin hit It Wasn’t Me into a ’60s-style version that sounds a whole lot like Tom Jones’ classic It’s Not Unusual. It’s one of those things that shouldn’t work, but somehow it does.

It Wasn’t Me: Muppets Edition

For his latest video redub, Mylo the Cat has Kermit the Frog channeling Rikrok’s vocals, and The Swedish Chef perfectly cast as Shaggy as they take on the classic reggae-rap track. All we can say is that Miss Piggy is gonna murder Kermie this time.

While the audio leaves a lot to be desired, it’s still awesome to see this performance where Stevie Wonder heard the reggae band Lesterfari and Kings Music gigging outside of an LA health food store, and joined them for an impromptu rendition of Bob Marley’s Waiting in Vain.

Nope, not the guy from Beach Boys, but this Hawaiian reggae artist is an equally talented musician. This live performance of his song Permanent Holiday may not seem much at first, until you realize what he’s doing. Skip to 4:22.
