This is another one that you may not know was a cover, Shaggy’s version of The Folkes Brother’s ‘Oh Carolina’. The original was released in 1960 and was a landmark single in the development of reggae and ska music. It was reworked by Shaggy in 1993 and became an international mega hit.
We thought we would put it up here, because we have the fantastic, romantic, boombastic lover Shaggy in the studio this Wednesday so we can celebrate his birthday with fairy bread and chocolate crackles, and ask him questions like ‘Why does he sound drunk on each one of his tracks?’
