OLDIES SUNDAY: Carol Gonzalez – Spoiled By Your Love (1986/1991)


It’s Wedding SZN! For the month of June, Oldies Sunday will feature some love songs that can be a great addition to your Wedding Playlists, and could be the official song to dance to. Today we go back a few decades with Carol Gonzalez and her single, “Spoiled By Your Love“! With two versions of this track produced by Donovan Germain, one version was released through the Rub-A-Dub label in 1986, while the 2nd version was released through Penthouse Records in 1991. The Rub-A-Dub version catered to Reggae listeners with a slow tempo and the legendary Dean Fraser playing the Saxophone while the Penthouse release was more of a Dancehall version with a faster tempo. The track was a cover of US Recording Artist Anita Ward’s single that was featured on her 1979 debut album, “Songs Of Love“. On the song, Carol spoke on a lover she could not get over, and no matter who she moved on with, he was just “the real thing“. Both versions of the song had Carol’s name buzzing locally and overseas, and received favourable airplay.

While Carol Gonzalez released more music over the years, and even scored a couple hits, she took a break to focus on her Law career (Attorney-at Law and a Judge). She came back to music for a short period in 2006 and launched her debut album a year later, but today she still practices Law.
