Written in the last year of his life and appearing on the rather disappointing Uprising, “Could You Be Loved” is certainly one of the outstanding tracks on that record, but as a love song it pales in comparison which such works as ”Waiting In Vain” and ”One Love/People Get Ready”. Lyrically, the song does not include anything particularly revelatory, but it does it’s job without getting in the way of the melody. Musically, the song is laid-back and charming, yet you do get the impression that Marley was going through the motions somewhat. He sounds tired throughout the song, and distinctly uninspired. Nevertheless, the song was one of the artist’s chart hits, and was especially popular in the UK.
