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

(http://toronto-lime.com/music/classics/luv_up.htm)

…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]

Smooth Soul Groove Monday

I’m really feeling mellow today.  In a good way.

I don’t want to get stressed out this week.  I don’t want to let things get to me.

I won’t.  They can’t.  They won’t.

I think I’m going to find and play good music everyday… and share it with you.

First up, here’s something from Anthony David. Its a duet with India.Arie.

From Anthony’s album “Red Clay Chronicles”, here’s their collaboration: Words.

They definitely make beautiful music together.

I believe that
Heaven must be like this
Ray of sunshine
Kissed upon your skin
Just say you love me
Make my day go good
Pot of gold at the
End of the rainbow

Can’t tell you nothin’ you ain’t already heard
No matter what I say it’s nothin’ but words
Just let me prove to you what I know is real
Let me express to you the way that I feel

I believe that
Love is synonymous
With heaven
Such a sensual bliss
The way you touch me
Makes this life so good
A reward at the
End of the long road

Black White Rose

Can’t tell you nothin’ you ain’t already heard
No matter what I say it’s nothin’ but words
Just let me prove to you what I know is real
Let me express to you the way that I feel

Fairy tales can be
Real if you just believe
Go my mind made
I don’t plan to leave
Cuz you were meant for me
Simple that may be
Why be complex
Loving you is so easy

Can’t tell you nothin’ you ain’t already heard
No matter what I say it’s nothin’ but words
Just let me prove to you what I know is real
Let me express to you the way that I feel
