A huge hit back in Suriname. I was only 8 years old when this song was played constantly on local radio stations. A tribute to parents. The song was originally released on the Creative Calypso label in 1962.
I love music, mostly Ballads be it US, Caribbean and all parts of the World. My second love is South American and Caribbean dance music. I'm not a technical listener but an emotional one. The voices, backing vocals, band, lyrics must touch me for me to like it. So don't expect me to dwell into technical details of songs, if it's on this blog, it's there because it touched me in one way or an other.
