The kiddipops has recently discovered Bob Marley – “I’m his biggest fan”, she has just shouted at me. Not through any influence of ours; had we played it to her, it would have immediately been deemed ‘lame’ or ‘rubbish’. I know, she’s only 8 – it starts early these days. Anyway, a friend played her “3 Little Birds” while she was on a sleepover, which meant we can now break out the Legend album.

It’s amazing to hear her singing the lyrics to ‘Buffalo Soldier” or “Get Up, Stand Up”. Even more amazing that songs recorded 30-odd years ago are still as powerful and relevant to the new generations.
