Well the beauty of music is there’s always something new to hear, regardless of how long the music has been around. I was perusing one of my regular blog spots, The Suburbs are Killing Us, early this morning, and came across the energizing, booty shakin’, get the day/month/year started right type o’ tune: “Oh Carolina” by Shaggy.
Most folks know Shaggy by his huge hit “Boombastic” from 1995, or 2000’s “It Wasn’t Me”. But his 1993 debut album, ‘Pure Pleasure’, yielded “Oh Carolina”, a tune originally done by the Folkes Brothers in 1961. The first few seconds of the track is sampled directly from the original, then yer off on a wild Shaggy ride. Enjoy….
