Is this love – is this love – that I’m feeling?
I was feeling rather playful and humorous when I wrote the lines verbatim to the famous Bob Marley Reggae song. I can’t remember how old I was when I first heard this song on the radio but to me, it sounded as though this Reggae legend was very much in love.
