It’s the month of June! For many, it’s considered a Wedding month, as many couples chose this month to jump the broom, get hitched, and make an honest partner out of each other. We’ve highlighted a few Wedding themed songs on Oldies Sunday, and today we give you another. For today’s selection, we head on over to Barbados to check out Lunar 7’s “Marry Me“!
Produced by Trex Records and released in 1972, “Marry Me” belongs to the Caribbean genre of music called, “Spouge“, which is a Ska/Calypso fusion that was originated in Barbados. The track is about a man who wants to spend the rest of his life with this one Woman, and he is tired of wandering. He shares his desire to come home to her, realizes what she’s all that his heart wants despite trying to be with other people, and he will tell the world how much she means to him. The track found favour with many during its release in the 70s, was used in a few Weddings, and remains a fond memory to some today. For those getting married this month, all the best from us!
