Music is a form of entertainment that has existed for millions of years. Music even predates written word. The harmonious or discordant sounds of music are a reflection of human emotions. Songs have the ability to make one feel sad, happy or angry.

While Lennon was still a Beatle, he recorded three experimental albums with Yoko Ono called Unfinished Music No. 1:Two Virgins, Unfinished Music No. Life with the Lions, and The Wedding Album. Lennon's first pop music album was Live Peace in Toronto in 1969. [...]

[...] He became known as ?Tuff Gong.? When Marley was growing up he made friends with Neville ?Bunny' Livingston (later to become Bunny Wailer of the Wailers) and began playing music with him. Marley became unsatisfied with school and dropped out at the age of fourteen and became an apprentice at a local welders shop. Livingston and Marley met up with another local singer and Rastafarian Joe Higgs and practiced music together.
