Don't Tell Me | Machel Montano | Trinidad & Tobago

I was listening to some of the older songs tonight and came across this one from Machel Montano that fits the bill for all those who are now the victim of the carnival fĂȘte bug. This fĂȘte bug made many delirious with what they consider to be love (delusional alcohol induced passion); and, can you guess what happened next? Of course you are correct, you hit the nail on the head; it was just what the doctor ordered to ruin a damn good relationship. Now comes the real 'carnival tabanca', not the one that Bunji Garlin sang about... hell no!  This one is not just about carnival going to sleep and your desire to relive those euphoric episodes, it comes with a broken heart, lost love and many sleepless nights.  C'est la vie!

Listen to Machel as he sings about his experience and what he plans to do to make the situation right for his own sanity. This is a story of unrequited love and someone being taken for granted. Sometimes this plays out in real time while feting and having a good time with friends during the carnival season. Carnival is nice, it is sweet but don't let one night of pleasure and false promises ruin a damn good thing... the grass is always greener on the other side but when you get there it may just be Astro Turf! Always remember to think before you act...
