Back-in-Times Thursday

In keeping with my ‘no stress for the week pledge’, here’s some “Back-In-Times” Soca music.

“Back-In-Times” is just another way we Trinbagonians say “Old School Jam”.

The name of the band is Shandileer.

The name of the song is “Love Up”.  I can’t find a video for this one, but please go…

…here…

“Love Up” by Shandileer

…for the audio track.

Its something I found over at Toronto-Lime.com

Trinidad & Tobago Flag

Shandileer

Lyrics, again, courtesy of the good folks at Toronto-Lime.com.

I’m not too sure if Ronnie Macintosh (in front with the hat) was with the band when they recorded this song, but I can distinctly hear Carl and Carol Jacobs doing background vocals:

Every day we just eating and we talking
We wondering if we both know what we doing
Darling ah dunno really how you feeling
But ah think is time we should start up this romancing

[Chorus]

Leh we go down de road and sit down by de school and luv up
We go talk bout de day, how it all past away and luv up
We could sing, we could dance and then all ah we dance and luv up
Doo-doo come leh we go, leh we go down de road and luv up
Oh lord, leh we go, leh we go, leh we go, go down de road and luv up

We dont know what we have and what we missing
Leh we work it out baby, we could come out with something
Talking bout life and living it is not de same thing
So baby leh we start to live, forget de horrors and fretting

[Chorus]

[Instrumental Break]

All over de world people carrying on, say dey fighting
Please doo-doo leh we avoid de quarrelling
We could wake up in de morning, do ah little something
Make sure everything wukking
And when de evening come, leh we settle down to some loving

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Leh we go down de road
Aye aye aye aye aye aye aye
ooh, ooh, ooh
(repeat)

[Chorus]

The Evolution of the Game Console

pac man

I love video games. They’re an outlet that challenges and entertains me at the same time.

Here’s something I got from the GeekSugar blog. Its a slide show showing the evolution of gaming consoles from the ’70’s to now. Peace.and.Much.Love.jw.

I always remember my first experience… playing ‘Pole Position’ on my friends’ Atari 2600 consoles. Many, many hours were spent in front of the television and at video arcades during vacation breaks!

Video goodness in post. I’ve never even heard of some of these machines! 😆

Vodpod videos no longer available.
