Here's a good one to slip in towards the end of your holiday mix, so it comes on when everybody's drunk. It's not that the song is about being drunk, or sung by a drunk, it's just because it sounds like a normal song would when heard by a drunk. You'll be able to peg the non-drunks by the baffled look on their faces when they hear this. The drunks will just take it stride.
The song is by Bahamian guitarist and singer Joseph Spence, who was known for this style of singing. It is guttural and almost unintelligible. Don't laugh at it (okay, maybe a little, it's almost unavoidable). Think of it this way; if a guitarist does wacky things with feedback, to the point of almost derailing a song, many of us would applaud that, Why not a vocalist delivering lyrics? Shouldn't they be afforded the same amount of legroom?
