A curfew can only work while it exists. What we need is a nation to stop this. The nation is the only one to save the country. To much corruption. Thanks for you music Crazy

Crazy real crazy. She cutting off the tail of the snake and call it fighting crime.I know that she knows who brings in all the guns and drugs and it's  not the youths. When she start jailing the money men, the head of the snake, who are the ones who really have the country in a mess, then I would take off my hat to her, until then it's just ratay rataty ratay. She thinks that people forgot the election rhetoric. "Three months and all crime gone". Wha happen partner?.

Why is everyone so "up-tight" about Crazy's song?  He is not that foolish to believe everything that he is singing.

That is a true psychological calypso---mamaguying the PM and upsetting the PNM folks. That calypso will be the PP's

"carnival anthem" and Crazy will be laughing all the way to the bank. More disturbing is the person who stated

"I am a PNM till I die". That is an irrational statement and that person is allowing his emotions to distort his logical

way of thinking.

Nice jumpy kaiso, though, but I'm not sure there's enough "meat" in it for pan arrangers to work with.

But then, who knows?

Arrangers have done magic with tunes that no one thought would work for Panorama.

Only time will tell!

crazy wonderful job.  It is about time we give tribute to Mrs. Kamla Persad Bissessar for her outstanding task.

I AM FROM WASHINGTON & I AM A PNM TILL I DIE - BUT CRAZY IS REALLY CRAZY - THIS MAN SAY THINGS THAT MIGHT BE CRAZY, BUT COULD BE TRUE - LET'S WAIT AND SEE - TIME WILL TELL IF SHE IS REALLY THE GREATEST

Comment by BOB ANNA on September 21, 2011 at 5:36pm
LOTS OF PEOPLE WOULD NOT AGREE WITH THIS CRAZY SONG, I REMEMBER IN 2000 WHEN CRAZY SANG A SONG NAME "IN TIME TO COME"/// THEY LAUGH AT HIM SAYING - A BLACK MAN COULD NEVER BE PRESIDENT OF AMERICA, AND IT HAPPEN - SO ALL THE CRITICS I SAY TO YOU - LET CRAZY DO HIS THING - I THINK CRAZY IS TRYING TO UPLIFT TRINBAGO WOMEN

Well –

Crazy really gone ‘crazy’ it seems. Kamla is the country’s greatest prime minister?  After two years this ‘Lunatic’ (another familiar name for “Calypso Crazy”, people, not mine) decides that she has accomplished so much that she is deserving of a higher regard than Dr. Eric Williams, without whose political savvy, Trinidad and Tobago would have seriously been masquerading still as a British satellite?  ‘Efficient police and the army’ – the same services which are rife with murderous thugs in their ranks, who terrorize T&T’s citizens themselves, and several (though not all), are known and brazen criminals as well?   Definitely, Mr. Ayoung, you are a lunatic, and not a ‘lovable’ one at that, either, this time around.

I have loved your music, your melodies for years, but your social commentary here borders on stupidity and is irresponsible.  Your claims in this song are incredible.  “With men in power none had the answer/”  So you are saying that under Prime Ministers Chambers, Robinson, Panday, that the crime rate was always this high, and queen kamla came along and succeeded where THEY all failed?   Are you serious?   The crime rate was not this horrendous under every male T&T prime minister.  Your commentary is historically inaccurate and a travesty to the office of the Prime Minister in T&T, and a highly disputable ‘indictment’ of at least some of those who preceded your ‘kamla the greatest’.   Care to wait for a while before you continue to ‘deify’ the lady prime
minister?  You are so much ‘in the tank’ for, or ‘in bed with’ this woman and her administration it would be pathetic under normal circumstances, if it were not so damned dangerous.
