Calypso Madness / tunezz
Hello lovely people! So as usual, instead of studying.. or shall I say whilst I was multitasking (studying and thinking), I remembered those summer days in Nigeria (summer meaning it was not raining) when my dad would take us to Ikoyi club or to the beach to spend the afternoon running around, swimming, riding donkeys as the case maybe. Those days were fun!
However, what I remembered in particular was my dad’s taste in music as we would be listening to his cds in the car on our way to wherever we were going. In those days, he absolutely loved calypso music – so much so that when I remember the 90s, all I can remember is calypso tunes and some lyrics. I found myself humming to this song called ‘this is madness’. I remembered some of the lyrics (I am quite proud of myself..) and decided to google it to see if I could find the song on youtube. The artist is called The Mighty Sparrow.
Another song I remembered is called Mama look a boo boo by Harry Belafonte.
