Have you seen the hashtag #getupstandup lately? The tag was created by the Bob Marley family, and it’s purpose is to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley’s ‘Legend’ album. Since we love anything that has to do with moving at Exodus Moving and Storage – and we dare you not to move when you listen to this song – we thought that we’d share the amazing response that the Marley family got to the creative #getupstandup hashtag.
The Tag Turnout
Bob Marley fans from around the world used the hashtag to showcase pictures of peace, protest, and other moments in time. The Marley family then took all of those photos, pieced them together, and created a YouTube video featuring the lyrics to Marley’s famous song in addition to the photos that were posted. The result of this montage is a new video for the old song that sings to today’s most important causes.
The video is both a moving tribute to Bob Marley and to today’s important reasons to get up and stand up. Fans wrote out various sections of Marley’s famous lyrics, and posted those lyrics on Instagram for the family to see. If you have the time, and you want to get up and stand up, take a look at the YouTube video.
Some Amazing Facts
Even though Bob Marley’s album ‘Legend’ was created back in 1984, the songs from that particular album have been popular around the world since the album was created. This week, that album rose to the top of the Billboard charts for the first time in thirty-eight years. The rise was in part due to a push by Google Play. Google was selling the album for ninety-nine cents this week in order to commemorate the anniversary.
It’s pretty hard to find someone that hasn’t heard at least one Bob Marley song, and chances are that the song they have heard came from the Legend album. There aren’t a lot of musicians that can boast the same kind of worldwide fame – especially considering how long Bob Marley has been dead. So, why is this singer so popular?
The Marley Magic
Bob Marley’s son, Ziggy, is partly responsible for the constant popularity of Bob’s music. Ziggy has been working to promote his father’s legend since the death of Bob Marley in 1981. But, Ziggy isn’t solely responsible for Marley’s popularity. Bob Marley songs give people a reason to, well, get up and stand up. It’s hard not to tap your feet to a Marley tune, and those that hear the reggae beats for the first time have a hard time not wanting more, in most cases.
As evidenced by the new YouTube video, people are still willing to stand behind Bob Marley, and to fight for what they believe in. Even if you didn’t take part in the #getupstandup hashtag campaign, you can still enjoy Bob Marley’s tunes – in fact, Marley often makes the top “best music to move to” lists. So, we recommend popping in some Bob Marley while you cruise to your new home or pack up those boxes. If you need some inspiration, just take a look at the YouTube video mentioned above – you’ll be up and packing fragile things in no time!
