Damian Marley on 5 Great Reggae Protest Songs

Bob Marley's youngest son shouts out Capleton, Bounty Killer, his brother Ziggy and more

Bounty Killer, "Look Into My Eyes"

That's a very powerful song. The way it's written is very poetic. There's something about the way he talks about all the details in the life of a so-called gangster in Jamaica that makes you feel everything. It's very real, the song brings everything that he's talking about to life. "Look into my my eyes/Tell me what you see/Can you feel my pain?/Am I your enemy?/Give us a better way/Things are really bad/The only friend I know/Is this gun I have." I remember when this song came out it was really speaking to what was happening in the streets at the time.
