The MusicTUN UP DREAD!
I know its been a while but I did promise in my previous post that I would be talking about the 2012 Soca Music.
So without much ado or fanfare here I my awards:
The Song that I can't get tired of no matter how many times I hear it Award Goes to:BUCKET! Like I mentioned in my post, for some reason the song just MAAAAAAAAAAAD, there isn't much more I can say.
Soca Anthem of the year:Bacchanalist/Vybes Cyaa Done. These two Songs were on the same rhythm, and while neither won groovy monarch, there is no question that they truly expressed the vibe and sentiment of everyone who enjoyed this season.
Riddim of the Year:Antilles Riddim. For those of you who somehow don't know, that is the rhythm that Bacchanalist and Vibse Cyaa done are on. For those songs alone, it deserved the title,. but the truth is every song I heard on it was sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet.
Run Song Of the Year:
Bottle Of Rum. This song has the line "Sober Overratted"... nuff said.
Trouble Song Of the year:Precision wine. Everyone who has heard this song knows why it had to get this award. For those of you who have not heard it. Its the FIRST line in the first verse. Just 3 little words that unleash a world of ... fun.
