OLDIES SUNDAY: Ras Shorty I & The Love Circle – Watch Out My Children (1988)


On today’s Oldies Sunday, our selection was made in recognition of the month of May being “Child’s Month“. Heading over to Trinidad & Tobago, we pick a song from the late Garfield Blackman a.k.a. Lord Shorty a.k.a. Ras Shorty I a.k.a. “The Father of Soca” along with The Love Circle Band. Titled “Watch Out My Children“, this was released in 1988 as a part of a live album of the same name, and in 1997. It was later featured as a part of the album “Jamoo Victory“. In the song, Ras Shorty I warns the youth to be alert as to not get caught up in the wrongs of the world, the dangers of drug abuse and it bringing shame and disgrace. A unique part of the song was that some lines were translated into various languages including German and French. The song has been translated in a total of 10 languages. The song, given its message, was later featured as a part of a Drug Abuse Campaign conducted by the United Nations. It was also covered by Jamaican Band, Chalice.
