Calypso & Soca Trivia | Bumper References

0 comments
If you are from the Caribbean then understanding the use of the word "bumper" in a song is not a problem. For those who are not tuned in to Caribbean music then lets put this one out there.
The word "Bumper" is used in a song to reference a woman's derriere or buttocks or backside. It does not matter how you reference or spell the word it all comes down to the woman's butt cheeks.

We have constantly said that we won't readily post songs that belittle people or put women in a bad light. The word bumper appeared in many songs that were sung for various carnivals across the Caribbean region. We are confident that you have heard songs (Calypso and Soca) that have referenced "bumpers" pointing to a woman's anatomy. 

So here is the question, the trivia segment today for those who claim to know Calypso and Soca. Name a song and artiste that used the word "Bumper" to reference a woman's derriere. If you can name the year then that is a plus... I will post the song for your listening pleasure. Please comment and add to the story; reference a song, singer and year if possible! We are looking for an early reference for the use of the word "Bumper" (as in anatomy of a woman).

*** The YouTube player credits Mighty Panther but this is the same song on Muriel's Treasure Volume 2 listed as "The Bedbug Song by Brownie". The singer sang in the song "but not Brownie in the song". Listen to the song he references 'bite them young ladies bumper' in the song. Muriel's Treasure lists the songs in the collection from the 1950's & 1960's. ***

Song Title: The Bedbug Song

Love It (Acoustic Version) | Kes | Twin Flame Vibes

0 comments

The Ladies favorite 'Horner-Man' is causing problems again.... feel the love all over again! If you loved the original version of the song, Love It by Kes, then this acoustic version will surely melt your emotions and cement your love for Kes even more. This is where the emotional state of your heart and soul is exposed especially if you are face to face with the one you love. This feeling of love exposes your raw emotions... say it and mean it, feel it and "Love It".

Summary Music Release Notes (original music release):
“Legend has it that when twin souls draw near each other a surge of creative energy is released. The Twin Flame Riddim is the manifestation of the “big bang” caused by their interstellar union.

That nostalgic feeling of love from a thousand lifetimes before translates into where you belong for a thousand more. Deeper than soul mates, they are the epitome of ying and yang; perfect and opposite, yet equal in all things. This profound astral bond has the potential to redefine what it means to love and what it means to be human.

Like a fire 🔥, let the cross Afro-Caribbean rhythm burn a permanent imprint on your heart in hopes of one day finding your Twin Flame.”

This is new music for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Summer Carnival 2019; this festival is better known as "Vincy Mas". You are going to love this new music release; it is a really good song, a song with meaning and one that would be better appreciated by those who have the experience of living in the Gully. However, you don't have to come from the Gully to appreciate good music and this one delivers on that promise... a good story with excellent music.
The genie out of the bottle, the magic begins with this one was done by the very talented Dynamite. The song is simply entitled, "Gully".  We are super confident that you will love this song.

This is where it all started and as he mentioned, "without the root, without the foundation, one cannot stand"! This is his story and it is an excellent presentation. We love the video, the music and vocals are all first class.

Same Result | Slatta ft. Skinny Fabulous | SVG 2019

After listening to this song we have to place it in the middle of the field in that it provides a safe zone for both artistes. This one does not excite the soul but provides the right feel for the right moment with someone special. Noting really stands out but everything sounds good. The music and the vocals all add up to a very good experience but, at the same time, provides nothing to add excitement to the moment on hearing the song. 

A good song, with a feel good vibe and solid vocal performances. We think it is a very good song but still does not excite the soul on hearing it. Now tell us what you think about the song.
