Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" radiates feel-good vibes, and this remix by his son Stephen Marley and DJ-producer Jason Bentley takes it to a new level with fresh, snappy snares and revamped synths that put a little extra pop in the positive jam. Marley's classic refrain of "Don't worry about a thing / 'Cause every little thing is gonna be alright," is as invigorating as ever, and the remixed keyboard lead maintains its breezy allure.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
