My husband and I spent our honeymoon on the island of St. Lucia back in summer of 2008, and had an amazing time. The weather was perfect, the scenery was gorgeous, and the music was…well, repetitive. It’s a good thing we like Bob Marley, because that is what we heard for 8 straight days.
So now every time I hear “Three Little Birds” (my favorite Marley tune), I’m taken back to that glorious week of sun, fun, and relaxation. It’s sort of become my calm-down song; I find myself singing it when I’m stressed or worried.
When I mentioned on Twitter a few weeks ago that it was stuck in my head, one of my music therapy friends mentioned that there is a children’s book based on the song. And you know how much I love singable stories, so this will definitely be added to my collection.
