For anyone not familiar with Soca...
Who Let the Dogs Out (clicking the link auto opens the song) is a song written and originally recorded by Anslem Douglas for Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival season of 1998. It was taped and broadcast from a float. Most well known is the version by the Baha Men.
Hot, Hot, Hot If you have been to the Caribbean you have heard this song, but this is the "original" by Soca musician Arrow. The more famous version was recorded by Buster Poindexter.
Both of Them Not very good sound quality, but Mighty Sparrow singing one of my favorite Soca songs.
One Cent, Five Cent, Ten Cent , Dollar The Soca Boys
Follow the Leader The Soca Boys
...and in paying respects to Reggae and the great Marley, may I also mention UB40 and the Wailing Souls? UB40 most well known for Red Red Wine (composed by Neil Diamond ) The Wailing Souls from some songs on the soundtrack of the Disney movie Cool Runnings. Some of my favs include Picky Picky Head Wild, Wild Life (gotta love this video!)
Hey, thank you for the feedback.
Let me kinda explain here. I'm looking at the concept of a duo, maybe a trio, voice/guitar - bass - keyboard(?) so the idea of pulling off something like HOT, HOT, HOT is a little beyond our means.
Yes, we could load the ipod with the backing tracks, but I've already been that route. We'd like to do the during/after dinner show at one or some of the resorts. That's why I asked what sort of music would get you to sit and listen.
Not to be snotty, but I've heard (as previously mentioned) the same set by the same 4 or 5 bands for the past 8 years. Seriously good musicians, but I have to wonder about the recurring set list. I know there have been a whole lot of good songs written by a lot of people and I'm just curious as to what might turn your listening crank.
Oh yes, it's a female voice by the way. A wonderful one at that.
Again, thanks for the help
be well, brightest blessings
Oh yeah, how about "Sweet Caroline" ? They play that one everywhere we go. The musicians must think we want to hear American Music. But I wish they would play a mix of modern, oldies and their own native top 40.
I was starting to think I was the only one.....
You can only hear some songs so many times, and as my mama always told me, a change can be as good as a rest.
I'd love to make a little change, in a completely acceptable and tasteful way of course....
Thanks Mr. Ratt for the great Thread, and everyone else!!!!
