a very good song. I have been travelling to the S.A.D.C region twice every yr for the past 9 yrs. I understand 75% of the words. Fantastic sing ... I only wish you knew wat the song is about
This is most uniform rating distribution I've seen. Ratings flat all across the board. :arrowl: :arrow:

Can I give this a minus 3?
This was a grower...first I didn't really notice it...then it became slowly unbearable. Make it stop!
Someone already made a "Pass the Dutchie" reference. Never mind. :arghhh:
I could do without this.
Zumanawabamanu! :bananasplit:

i was thinking the same thing
If you played this backward and bit more slowly you would hear "Don't Worry, Be Happy"...
Yeah I agree, what ever you said. Is it me or are the words getting harder to understand these days.
I love this song.. more happy songs like this are needed. =)
Two words come to mind sucko barfo!
Now that's a THANKSGIVING song!
Fun to listen to...no comprendo, and pluto's crew doesn't get the words, but good groove. :roflol:
Where's the "skip" button?
Sounds like an African Musical Youth (Pass the Dutchy). Blahhhhhh.
Everyone around me at the office likes this one! Cool! RP is opening minds to different music in the mortgage world today!
Fun and toe-tapping.

I just gave this a 10 - I probably would have given it a 9 or even an 8, but i know there is probably some nitwit out there that gave this a 1 just because he couldn't understand the lyrics, so I had to up my score to even things out a bit.
I was actually thinking of doing the same thing. The world has too many nitwits. I gave it an 8 just because it is an excellant song.
the language makes it slightly interesting... the music itself is pretty boring. annoying, really.

I thought it was Pressure Drop by Maytals when I heard the very beginning.
Me too ! I was disapointed it was not !

Do you mean PUTUMAYO ?
:nodhead: www.putumayo.com
No. You're imagining it. Chill. It's a great song, no matter what gibberish it may be written in. Besides, I can't understand half the words in English songs.

Actually, I thought maybe the Kinks just got back from Africa. But I hear the Heads similarity as well. Sounds like good background, but not a favorite I want to turn up.
And I say again...

BIG DEAL!! Am I imagining it, or does afro-pop seems to come in for more of these sorts of comments than other world music? Granted, I discovered African music in a country bar in Kenya many years ago and have been hooked since. But if Bill restricted the playlist to our one common language, I'd find RP just a shadow of its currently rollicking, ridiculously good-time self.

WEIRD! I cannot believe I'm hearing this on RP...I bought this CD like 10 years ago and this is the first track. Ha ha...

Would have been much more creative if so!
Hmmmm, sounds like a spin off of some Johnny Clegg or visa-versa? Anyone know anything bout this guy? He needs to be told about creating verses maybe.
