It’s that time of year when it’s colder than cold, and Sorrel and Ham become holiday staples. It’s Christmas time on Oldies Sunday. For today’s entry, we take a trip to Trinidad & Tobago to hear Marcia Miranda’s “Gimme Love Fuh Christmas“!
Arranged by Pelham Goddard, “Gimme Love Fuh Christmas” was released through Crosby’s in 1993. The holiday-themed track finds Marcia Miranda rejecting all the typical gifts that one would want for Christmas, and is instead needing love from her Husband. It gets very chilly at that time of year, and without the love of her life, the season is a sad one. “Gimme Love” resonates with many during this time of year as some would find themselves lonely, or even distant from the ones they love. We hope that changes for many of our listeners. Marcia Miranda’s “Gimme Love Fuh Christmas” became a popular Parang track when released, and is still played through various outlets to this day.
Marcia Miranda is still very active in the Caribbean, and has a catalogue that extends beyond Parang. Stay tuned to this platform for another holiday offering on Oldies Sunday!
