Calypso, Steelband and Soca are featured here on Soka2Soca regularly. However, so as not to run into trouble with steelpan fans, we don't want to appear as fair-weather fans posting pan-music only when carnivals come calling. For that reason, we decided to post a track with a steelpan as the headliner. Today we present the song "Hello" by Earl Brooks from the album "Something Nice".

 
In one stroke we dropped the mic! We deliver something nice (literally) while pointing you to Earl Brooks awesome album. The album is available for purchase on Amazon Music in CD or MP3 formats. Hello is a classic song but when done on the steelpan it takes on another dimension when performed on the steelpan, an instrument that adds an authentic Caribbean flavor to the track.
 
There is something special about the steelpan (the national instrument of Trinidad & Tobago) and it is the sweet sound of the instrument that adds flavor to a song that is considered a classic. The steelpan's bright and lively tones add joyful energy to the song making this version one for your music collection. Earl Brooks is a master of the steelpan, and the fusion of steelpan and traditional instruments lights up the arrangement. We think you will love this track; we are pleased to present it to you today.

I know that writing a song can be a daunting task, but I hope this post provides some helpful tips and advice.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when writing a Soca song:

 

Keep it catchy! Soca songs are all about the beat and the melody, so make sure your song is something people will want to dance to.

Use positive lyrics! Soca music is all about having fun and celebrating life, so make sure your lyrics reflect that.

 

Be creative! Soca music is a very diverse genre, so experiment with different sounds and styles. A Soca song is typically constructed into four main parts:

 

Verse

The verse is where the story of the song is told. It is usually the longest part of the song, and it is where the main lyrics are sung.

 

Chorus

The chorus is the most memorable part of the song. It is usually short and catchy, and it is often repeated throughout the song.

 

Bridge

The bridge is a short section that is usually used to change the mood of the song. It can be used to add a new melody, introduce a new topic, or simply to break up the monotony of the song.

 

Outro

The outro is the final section of the song. It is usually shorter than the Hello Soca fans out there, have you ever wondered about who creates what and how Soca songs are created? Today, we have a post that should help you understand how the creative process works.

Title: Party Time
 
Verse 1:
It's party time, so let's get down
We're gonna dance all night long
So put on your dancing shoes
And let's get this party started
 
Chorus:
Party time, party time
It's time to let loose and have some fun
So let's dance, let's sing, let's shout
And let's make this night unforgettable
 
Verse 2:
We're gonna drink, we're gonna eat
We're gonna laugh, we're gonna cry
We're gonna make memories that will last a lifetime
So come on, let's party!
 
Chorus:
Party time, party time
It's time to let loose and have some fun
So let's dance, let's sing, let's shout
And let's make this night unforgettable.
 
Bridge:
This is our time to shine
So let's make the most of it
Let's dance until our feet hurt
And let's sing until our throats are sore
 
Chorus:
Party time, party time
It's time to let loose and have some fun
So let's dance, let's sing, let's shout
And let's make this night unforgettable
 
Outro
It's party time
It's party time
it's party time
