OLDIES SUNDAY (Christmas): Red Plastic Bag – Maizie


It’s the last Sunday before Christmas Day, and we hope you aren’t under immense pressure to get presents for everyone. It’s also another Oldies Sunday, and we have another selection that plays in the theme of the season. We take a trip to Barbados to check out Red Plastic Bag’sMaizie“!

Produced by Mc Donald Fingall and released through the Pond Side label, Red Plastic Bag had to deliver something special for the holiday season. The song is a take on a classic Christmas song, but with Red’s signature twist as he speaks on the character “Maizie” who has been caught kissing Santa Claus. The story gets interesting as Maizie is being approached with questions about the man she’s kissing to see if it’s really Santa, or her secret lover. The drama-filled song became a popular since its release, and remains a favourite among Bajans, and listeners from around the world during Christmas time. Red Plastic Bag is a multi-year Soca Monarch King, and is one of the Icons of Calypso/Soca in the Caribbean.

Next Sunday is Christmas Day, save us a seat at the table.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Burning Flames – Swing Engine (1994)


Somewhere out there, there’s some Soca Music blaring through some speakers. For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we’re taking a trip to Antigua. We highlight Soca Band Burning Flames’Swing Engine“.

Produced and arranged by Burning Flames Productions and released in 1994, “Swing Engine” was made for the ladies who knew how to dazzle and hypnotize, and were built for speed with what they got! A song that showcased a new era of modern Soca Music in the Caribbean, Burning Flames’ “Swing Engine” quickly became a hit for the band. The song’s cleverly written lyrics, heavy production, and storytelling elements made it a classic, and is still in heavy rotation today. “Swing Engine” or sometimes called “Swinging Engine” was featured on Burning Flames’ 1994 album, “Klatye“. “Swing Engine” has also been covered by School bands around the Caribbean, most recently by a Cadet Band in Manchester, Jamaica.

Since the release of “Swing Engine”, Burning Flames went on to make more hits, score more album releases, and influenced future generations of Soca Artist before going through lineup changes over the years. No matter what the band did, “Swing Engine” is still one of the band’s biggest singles.

Thank You Burning Flames For This Classic!

OLDIES SUNDAY: @MachelMontano – Too Young To Soca (1986)


As we come to a close of the month of May being “Child’s Month“, we’d like to highlight one more star whose career started in their youth. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Soca Legend Machel Montano with the track, “Too Young To Soca“!

Produced by Eddy Grant and released in 1986 through the Ice Label, this song featured Machel Montano at the age of 9. With high energy production, Machel commanded the track with the prowess of a veteran. He expressed his love for Soca Music, and dared to defied people’s opinions of his being too young to Soca. He wants to sing, he wants to jam, so let him be! “Too Young To Soca” quickly catapulted Machel Montano to stardom, and opened up a lane for him to enjoy a career that has spanned well over 30 years. “Too Young To Soca” was featured on his 1985 4 track album of the same name.

As the month comes to an end, we’d like to ask all the parents or soon to be parents one thing, please protect the children! There are so many kids with promise and potential, and society finds a way to shatter their hopes and aspirations. Protect the yutes!

thank you machel montano for this classic!
