Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
A blast from the past from the legendary calypsonian.
Some of us may have forgotten , but the legendary calypsonian Lord Melody was a joy as a singer and composer , and one of the great masters of the genre.
Many of his compositions became classics of the genre , and like most singers of his day , he was a master of the double entendre , and capable of lyrics that, while suggestive weren't openly vulgar.
This was also a popular tune with the steelbands in those days, an era when just about any good calypso would have also been a good "pan tune"
Here is one of his great hits of yesteryear that displays Melody at his best - the voice , the lyrics - he was aptly named.
Fitzroy Alexander , the Lord Melody was born in 1926 , and passed away in September, 1988.
May he Rest in Peace.
