Step 1 – Attention: “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain. ” –Bob Marley A. The man who sang these words is considered the King of Reggae, an ambassador of Peace and love, and he has become one of the most iconic singers the world has ever known!!!
I think you all know whom I am speaking of, and if you don’t, I hope after today you’ll be on YouTube searching one of his famous songs. B. The point of today’s speech is to get you to start listening to the chill reggae beat that Bob Marley offers. From his hit titles “Redemption Song” and “Three Little Birds” to others like “Could you be loved” and “Jammin”. Bob Marley has implemented the reggae sound in every corner of the world; you would have to be from out of this galaxy for you not to hear his music.
So don’t be an alien listen to some Bob Marley music! It may be for your own good. II. Step 2 – Need: Need heart, positive inspiration and soul! C. The problem with a lot of the hit music today is they talk about too much “bumpin and grindin”, killing and fighting, hating and cheating. Sometimes your soul and your heart crave some positive inspiration and healing. D. An article by Nancy K. Dess suggests that music does influence the mind and according to “psychologicalscience. org” the mind and body reciprocally influence each other.
Since music is influencing the mind, and the mind is influencing the body to do something, wouldn’t it be nice to have your body at peace and stress free? Listening to Bob Marley music allows you to hear music that will leave your mind and body at ease! And it may be able to do even more. III. Step 3 – Satisfaction: Music can heal E. Music has been known to help treat cancer patients, children with ADD, and even people going through all kinds of pain. According to an article on about. om it said, “Research has shown that music has a profound effect on your body and psyche. In fact, there’s a growing field of health care known as music therapy, which uses music to heal. ” F. If you guys didn’t know, Bob Marley died from cancer in 1981. When he was first diagnosed with cancer while he was still on tour and one thing that stunned the doctors and his family was how bad the cancer had spread and how he was still not only walking but also performing. According to many theorists it was the music that kept him going!
If this music helped Bob Marley to survive for so long with cancer then I am positive this music can sooth your heart and soul. IV. Step 4 – Visualization: Peace that cost $10 G. Imagine the millions of dollars being spent for weapons of mass destruction made to kill and divide people, now imagine something so influential that it can bring Peace and life among millions of Jamaicans with the cost of no more than $10. H. Bob Marley put on concerts to promote Peace and justice during the time of Jamaica’s political civil war.
Michael Manley of the People’s National Party and Edward Seaga of the Jamaican Labour Party were the leaders of these two opposing sides. This brought war to the people and also influenced some men to go to Bob Marley’s house and shoot him because of his concert that he was going to have during that time to bring peace. Having survived that incident Bob Marley still took the stage despite the hostility and sang for peace. If the music of Bob Marley has this much of a positive influence on people, I think it’s worth your attention for at least a few minutes for any song that he sang.
V. Step 5 – Action: Go listen I. So when you go back to your dorm room, turn up the volume on your sound system, and feel the one-drop of the reggae beat that Bob Marley has to offer. It’s good for the heart and it’s good for the soul. J. You can go on iTunes and download a song for a dollar or just go on YouTube and listen to the entire Legend album and listen to the sweet melodies.
