Get Up Stand Up – Pink Turtle

This cover version really has no business working at all, let alone being as entertaining as it is. But berets off to French seven piece Pink Turtle, somehow they pull it off and even throw a bit of Nat ‘Cannonball’ Adderley’s Work Song into the mix as well.

Inspired by the song Slippin’ into Darkness by War, Get Up, Stand Up originally appeared on The Wailers’ album Burnin‘ in 1973. Written by Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, each of the Wailers – Marley, Tosh and Bunny Wailer – have all recorded their own solo versions of the song.
