I put some examples of Calypso and related genres on my Blog about St. Vincent and the Grenadines [ see here ]. I'll bring those examples here and continue the discussion in this blog. I'll probably also put examples on some of the old entries to this blog, now that I know how to do that.

Lord Invader sings about Matilda.
King Tiger (also known as The Growling Tiger) sings about money.
Atilla the Hun sings about a politician in Nankivell
