In true Shadow style, he wittingly ridicules
Caribbean governments for doing little to stop piracy. In SING BOY SING
Shadow laments about how writers, composers and arrangers labor to make
their tunes only to find the pirates selling the CDs. No one cares about
calypsonians until they are about to die when the government offers to pay
for their burial explains Shadow. “Sing Boy Sing” in addition to its humor
and social commentary is nice music for exercising and partying.
Sing boy sing don’t worry about no money
Sing boy sing take pressure and be happy
And when you sick the radio will play you
And when you dead the government will bury you.
Revelers will find the tunes, “Oh Yoo,” “Musical Me,”
“Whop Cocoyea,” and “Horner Man Crying” the big carnival songs of 2004.
They are all on Shadow’s FULLY LOADED CD.
