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]

Rent-Ah-Tile Wednesday

In keeping with my ‘no stress for the week pledge’, here’s some “Rent-A-Tile” music.

In Trinbagonian parlance, to “rent-a-tile” means to slow-dance with your partner held so closely to you, that your feet/bodies don’t move that much on the dance floor.

Its almost like all the two of you do is ‘dance’ (more like grind) on the same tile…

Rent-Ah-Tile music are the songs you have to dim those lights and hold your honey bunches of oats reeeeal close.

Here’s something from the sultry, seductive Sade: Cherish The Day.

Put the kids to bed! 😉


You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer

If you were mine
If you were mine
I wouldn’t want to go to heaven

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
You’re ruling the way that I move
You take my air

You show me how deep love can be


Sade Adu
You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away

You show me how deep love can be
You show me how deep love can be
This is my prayer

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away
Won’t shy

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray

I cherish the day
I cherish the day
I cherish the day
I cherish the day
I cherish the day

Peace and Much Love.
