Best Sing Along Songs for Fireside Jammin’

A day at the beach, capped off by a night spent around the fire with good music and great friends is a great way to cap off a day. With nighttime fun around the fire on our brains, we’ve created a list of the best sing along songs for you and your friends to jam on your Bag of Rhythm portable audio system. Download the tunes, get some firewood, warm up that angelic singing voice and prepare yourself for a night full of the best sing along songs.

Bob Marley – “No Woman No Cry”


Our list starts off with our namesake’s classic “No Woman No Cry.” Let your voices ring out with your portable audio system providing the backing track and remind everyone that “Everything’s gonna be alright.”

Harry Belafonte – “Day O (Banana Boat Song)”


Before Lil Wayne sampled this song for “6 Foot 7 Foot,” “Day O (Banana Boat Song)” was made popular by the “King of Calypso” Harry Belafonte. Yet, the song’s roots come from a traditional Jamaican folk song, one that will sound great echoing out of the Bag of Rhythm portable audio system.

Sublime – “Santeria”


“Santeria” may be the newest entry into our playlist of the best sing along songs, but it captured the reggae feel that appeals to Marley fans and established Sublime as the one of heirs to the reggae-rock throne. The late Bradley Nowell inflected this song with his trademark humor and made it the perfect song for both good and bad times.

Jimmy Cliff – “The Harder They Come”


Bob Marley’s fellow countryman Jimmy Cliff is well known for his role in the film The Harder They Come. The singer’s mammoth hit of the same name propelled Cliff to stardom and has since become one of the most memorable reggae songs to ever be written. One of the best sing along songs for any occasion.

Otis Redding – “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay”


Wind down the night with one of the best sing along songs from the late, great Otis Redding. Released after his death in a plane crash in 1967, “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” has memorable lyrics that are perfect for group singing and wastin’ time with the ones you love.

Designed with as little earth impact as possible, the Marley Bag of Rhythm is the jam for people who are not only serious about their sound system, but their eco-system as well.
