Exactly, a bit of sarcasm me thinks, ie: "get back on your banana boat" Rolling Eyes

No matter to me. I'd have helped her row, to a more secluded locale, to spend quality time, with the lass! Mr. Green

Millie is actually on Instagram. She's looking well.

Aye. The duets with Roy Panton, were much tastier, than the rest of the set, as a whole. Wink

Yes that's the one. Never been a fan; her voice spoiled many a ska duet for me, but I'm pleased that she enjoyed the success that so many other artists of merit never attained.

Agreed about the deserved success she got, Andy and understand about how her voice might annoy!

It doesn't annoy me, as I "sort of" grew up with it - it's the voice of some others (like Prince Lincoin and Beres Hammond) that grate with me...

I still haven't been able to confirm the male vocalist on Melting Pot. Monty N. is definitely a possibility, bit no one has come forward to confirm it.

Strangely, one of my posts with a video on Facebook was taken down! Racist lyrics maybe?

I remember reading a piece on the lyrics to 'Melting Pot'. I'm not sure whether there's an official ban on it as such, more that it just won't get on a playlist.

How bloody PC daft is that Rolling Eyes

I always thought it was a song about racial harmony.

It is. But, you're not allowed to be human, anymore. You have to be like the Borg. Part of the collective. Or else.

CS Lewis wrote:
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.


Oh yeah, the "racist" bit, of the tune, is probably the part about the "chinkee's":

"Oh Lordy, Lordy, mixed with yellow Chinkees, yeah".
