Since early, The Beatles, recorded three types of Caribbean Music. Do anybody remember which were?

"P.S. I Love you", "Till there was you", "I call your name", "Ob la di, Ob la da". I can't categorise the types or the styles but the last two had ska and reggae influence. There are some others as well like "And I love her", the guitar intro and its chords are in my opinion latin oriented. "Besame mucho"(Kiss me much)...

Obladi Oblada is more of a Polka than a Carribean rhythm.I Me mine is a waltz I still can't think of any with a reggae or Caribbean rhythm I give up you tell us Gerry.

Thanks, and thanks for the info too about the Caribbean musical style. I need to be educated on that. However, "Anna(Go to him) is not their song. It's written and performed by Arthur Alexander a R&B artist. If I remember well they covered "A shot of Rhythm and Blues" on "Live at the B.B.C." and "Where have you been" on "Live at the Star Club". The original is here so you can tell if Alexander him self had some influences from the Caribbean.



P.S. I believe that many Afroamericans have been influenced by the music of the Caribbean.

The two other songs were also Alexander's, sorry for having omitted that on my post. I thought that you knew. "A shot of Rhythm and Blues" was written though by Terry Thompson and "Where have you been"(and other British invasion groups covered this one), I think it was Alexander's composition, too. I forgot "Soldier of Love" on "Live at the B.B.C. that it is another one of Alexander's repertoire. The Stones covered his song "You better move on". Not only them, you can search about Arthur Alexander on the Wikipedia.
