Bob Marley - Three Little Birds





En este caso la fuente de inspiración de Marley para las letras de "Three Little Birds" es algo controvertido. Tony Gilbert, un amigo de Marley, dice haber estado presente en el momento en que estaba componiendo la canción.”Bob se inspiró en un montón de cosas a su alrededor, observó la vida. Me acuerdo de  tres pajaritos. Eran canarios, que estaban en el alféizar de la ventana. Sin embargo, las tres cantantes femeninas de el grupo de reggae, I Threes , que hacían los coros con Marley dicen que es una referencia a ellas. Marcia Griffiths comentó: "Después de componer la canción, Bob siempre se refería a nosotras como las Three Little Birds. Después de algún espectáculo, la gente nos hacía volver al escenario. incluso en cuatro ocasiones al grito de little birds! De hecho Bob nos preguntaba a la hora de volver al escenario..Qué me decís Little Birds?







The source of Marley's inspiration for the lyrics of "Three Little Birds" remains disputed. They're partly inspired by birds that Marley was fond of, that used to fly and sit next to his home. Tony Gilbert, a long time friend of Marley, was present at the time he was writing the song and elaborated, "Bob got inspired by a lot of things around him, and he observed life. I remember the three little birds. They were pretty birds, canaries, which would come by the windowsill at Hope Road. However, three female singers from the reggae group I Threes who did shows with Marley claim it is a reference to them I Threes member Marcia Griffiths  remarked, "After the song was written, Bob would always refer to us as the Three Little Birds. After a show, there would be an encore, sometimes people even wanted us to go back onstage four times. Bob would still want to go back and he would say, 'What is my Three Little Birds saying?'
