    I plan to skip the obvious by suggesting the obvious. Although the Fab 5 did a wonderful job with it...I'll go with the original by Eric Donaldson. A Festival Winner I do believe.

    It certainly tells the story with a memorable and uplifting melody and lyric. [And while someday when 'Herb' has been legalized everywhere and people all over the world enjoy the advantages of its many wonderful benefits...thus raising Peter Tosh and his ode to 'Legalize It' to a higher and even more deserved awareness and respect...]
    I'm going with 'Land of My Birth'

    I find myself humming it frequently.

    because the first time I met my jamaican family years ago this song was blaring someplace. Been memorable ever since
