"Could You Be Loved" is a song by reggae group Bob Marley & The Wailers. It was released in 1980 on their last album Uprising and is included on Bob Marley & The Wailers greatest hits album Legend. It was written in 1979 on an airplane while The Wailers were experimenting on guitar. The song is considered by many reggae fans to be disco influenced, and by extension influencing the dancehall genre.

In the middle of the song, background singers quote a verse from Bob Marley's first single Judge Not: "The road of life is rocky; And you may stumble too. So while you point a finger, someone else is judging you".

Instruments used on the original record of this song are guitars, bass, drums, acoustic piano, the Hohner clavinet and an organ, as well as the Brazilian cuica.
