Although I’ve been in Barbados for about 5 days, I haven’t gotten much of a sense of the big tunes for cropover 2012 but what I will share is some of my favourite Bajan tunes over the years.
1. Square One – Grind Me (Come Up To My Bumsy)
Allison Hinds & Square One was probably the first soca band I loved. Although this is a popular song, I didn’t hear it often in Toronto so the few times this song ketch me… wooooo!
2. Krosfyah – Sugar Cane
I love obvious and wutliss double entendres. Need I say more?
3. Timmy – Bumpa Catch A Fire
I’m not sure that I like this song. But I can’t hear it without smiling. Memories of Caribbean Students’ Organization party weekends during undergrad come flooding back.
Happy Cropover or carnival season to everyone in Barbados, Antigua, St. Vincent, Tortola, Toronto, Grenada, Nevis and anywhere else celebrating!
