Favorite Song of the Week: Mighty Sparrow - Mango Vert

Today was a gorgeous spring day. Yes, it's the middle of January. Yes, it's Wisconsin. Yes, I said spring.

We haven't had any sunshine in this neck of the woods for at least 2 weeks. Today it was sunny ALL day. The temps went as high as the mid 50's. It was so beautiful, I had to take a walk at lunch and soak up some of the sun.

To hang onto that sunshiney feeling for the rest of the day, I listened to Mighty Sparrow - the Calypso King Of The World. The beat made my afternoon fly and captured my mood perfectly. It trumps everything else I've been listening to this week.

Check it out for yourself:

Listen: Mighty Sparrow - Mango Vert mp3

If the tropical feel and horns don't get you, the lyrics will:

she said if you eat it right the hair won't stick in your teeth
and your bound to say how it tasted sweet, sweet, sweet
but if you eat it wrong don't walk in the street
everybody gonna know when they see the hair in your teeth

If you like the song, you'll love First Flight: Early Calypso from the Emory Cook Collection. If you already belong to eMusic, get it here. It's perfect for a summer BBQ.
