Enough with the small change give me big money whine.

There's also Reggae Nights and Twice My Age, which I realize are not calypso but are wedding pleasers nonetheless.

BTW, "Hurricane" Harold Hosien (yes, that one) released a calypso album about ten years ago. There was a song on it called "Referendum" about the Quebec Referendum. Definitely a must-own.

I heard this song last week for the first time in over ten years, and it has been stuck in my head ever since.

"push" might be another good tune since it's kind of narrative (left, right, back, push"). actually, pretty much any tune that tells people what to do is a safe bet at weddings*

*previous instruction recommended for pon di river/go-go wine/bogal/peppaseed
