Well I have to give ALVIN DANIEL some high marks for THESE LYRICS. It could be the MOST TOUCHING CALYPSO in MY LIFE

I did not like the MUSICAL INTRO and I did not like Denyse Plummer singing that song with her NASAL TONE. But the depth of social commentary that he captured in this calypso and THE RELEASE that resolved the story line -- I am not sure that I could find better lyrics that support an argument anywhere in any other calypso.

So I have toTIP MY HAT to ALVIN DANIEL here -- as a CALYPSO LOVER.

THIS FEELING NICE

Tell the DEE-JAY to play

Only SOCA MUSIC today

Cause when I feel this way

I could party all day

This Feeling Nice

Like Sugar and Spice

Yes this feeling nice

Make it WASSY and make it SWEET

From meh head to meh feet

I will love to hear Alvin views on Panorama, from then to now. And the state of the Steelband today, can't think of a better person to do that.

May be he can help clarify the discrepancy, Boogsie is credited as the composer.
