"Could you be loved" - Amazing a capella tribute to Bob Marley by a Jewish band

Don't let them change ya, oh! - Or even rearrange ya! Oh, no!
We've got a life to live.

Today, Friday, May 11, 2018 marks the 37th anniversary of the death of legendary reggae artiste, Bob Marley, who died at the age of 36 from cancer.

"Marley wasn't singing about how peace could come easily to the World but rather how hell on Earth comes too easily to too many. His songs were his memories; he had lived with the wretched, he had seen the downpressers and those whom they pressed down."
Mikal Gilmore, Rolling Stone

The influential singer was born Robert Nesta Marley on 6th February, 1945 in the small hamlet of Nine Miles, St Ann, Jamaica.

He moved to the slums of Trench town in Kingston where he started his music in the 1960s according to Wikipedia. From there, Bob Marley rose to become one of the most revered artistes of all time.

He, single-handed, put reggae music and Jamaican culture on the global map and at the height of his fame in the late 1970s had enriched the original roots rhythms with elements of other genres, notably rock and soul.

This awesome a capella version of Bob Marley's 'Could You Be Loved' was made by Israeli musicians in honor of what would have been the late Marley's 70th Birthday. An event is being held in Israel on January 31, 2015 to celebrate in Tel Aviv.

"Could You Be Loved" - LYRICS

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved and be loved?

Don't let them fool ya,
Or even try to school ya! Oh, no!
We've got a mind of our own,
So go to hell if what you're thinking is not right!
Love would never leave us alone,
A-yin the darkness there must come out to light

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved, wo yeah! - and be loved?

(The road of life is rocky and you may stumble too,
So while you point your fingers someone else is judging you)
Love your brother-man!
(Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?
Could you be - could you be loved?
Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?
Could you be - could you be loved?)

Don't let them change ya, oh! -
Or even rearrange ya! Oh, no!
We've got a life to live.
They say: only - only -
Only the fittest of the fittest shall survive -
Stay alive! Eh!

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved, woah yeah! - and be loved?

(You ain't gonna miss your water until your well runs dry;
No matter how you treat him, the man will never be satisfied.)
Say something! (Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?
Could you be - could you be loved?)
Say something! Say something!
(Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?)
Say something! (Could you be - could you be loved?)
Say something! Say something! (Say something!)
Say something! Say something! (Could you be loved?)
Say something! Say something! Reggae, reggae!
Say something! Rockers, rockers!
Say something! Reggae, reggae!
Say something! Rockers, rockers!
Say something! (Could you be loved?)
Say something! Uh!
Say something! Come on!
Say something! (Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?)
Say something! (Could you be - could you be loved?)
Say something! (Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?)
Say something! (Could you be - could you be loved?) *[fadeout]
