Today’s entry is by request! This is one of Marley’s most popular songs and I couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t on Wikipedia! I then realized it’s not called, “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” but instead, “Three Little Birds.” I was gonna say…this was a hit but not a single? Not possible!
Three Little Birds was released in September of 1980 from the album, Exodus. It went to #17 on the UK’s Top 20 and has been covered by various artists over the years. In 2008, an 8-year-old British singer, Connie Talbot, covered the song and it reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot Single Sales Chart. Listen to her version HERE.
The song is self-explanatory, it says you shouldn’t let worry get the best of you because everything will work out in the end. It is believed that the “three little birds” represent the trinity.
Above is the official video.
