Quoting GregW

Anything released from 1989 until 1995. Probably has something to do with brain damage suffered during college years due to excessive alcohol consumption.

Any of you ever heard of Soca music? Everyone here just has to get up and wine ( a caribbean type of dancing- basically girating your hips!) to Soca! Its fantastic!

This weekend you should be in Toronto - it's the big Caribana festival, one of the largest Caribean festivals in North America. The parade usually draws a crowd in excess of 1,000,000! Lots of Soca music, rag-waving and waist-wining.

Seriously? Very cool! Have you been? If not, then why not! I'm sure its well worth the experience!

People in London can listen to Soca at the Notting Hill Carnival too. Not quite the same as the Trini Carnival but its worth going along and tasting the Caribbean culture.

I was at a cafe the other day, and they were playing a mix of 80s stuff - Valerie, Rock Me Amadeus, Tarzan Boy - all those silly songs we used to hear on the radio. It was fantastic - I could barely follow a conversation for wanting to sing along. The 80s had some really cheesy music, but it certainly made you want to get up and move.

This year, they started the "Salsa on St. Clair" festival in Toronto. Several city blocks jammed packed full of people dancing to the latin rhythms.

Sublime, Bob Marley, or Relient K (for some odd reasons. A lot of the songs have really good beats)
