Machel Montano

Why is it that Machel Montano's new song, "Unconditional Love" sounds so much like something I've heard before? Is it a stolen melody? I could swear I'm hearing melodies from some other song. Anyone has any information on this?



Nice song but that's it. Not great, and there's nothing new. It's the same jump and wave theme except for the words "unconditional love". Where's the freshness? Take out the title and it's the same regurgitated nonesense. Machel must come better than this.

Perhaps I'm rushing to judgement, this is just an early tune and he has much better stuff to come. I sincerely hope so.

Unconditional love melody
by: Trini 2 d Chicken Bone

I gotta say the song is really gr8 from an average soca artist but for a really gr8 artist like Machel the song is average. Also i got this weird feeling also like if i heard dat melody from some old school rock band or something...It's just there but can't pin-point it.

But I'm sure Machel has something in the pot brewing later down in the season. For the early part of the season i'm feeling Firey from Bunji. The chorus is very reminiscent of Lord Kitchener.

Machel-Unconditional
by: Anonymous

Machel releases tons of songs every carnival season. Not everyone will like what he puts out. Some will have one favorite out of the bunch. Last year, mine was Higher than High, even though Jumbie won Road March. The man doing his thing.

this love is Unconditional
by: Lady Scandalous

I guess we all would have differnet views, I personally love it, it's a lil slower that the usual jump and wave and I thinks its a love song to carnival, cuz it's showing his appreciation to the music, to the spirit to the festivities, just showing the unconditional love for the season, I think it's quite different and I'm loving it...

unconditional love lyrics - love it
by: Mariah

Original melody or not, I don't know. But nonetheless, BIG TUNE!

we love to jump with we rag by the side of the truck
we love to wave till we tired and we not giving up
we love to wine in the streets for the festival
this love
is unconditional

we love to jump with we friends when we reach in the band
we love to wave on the stage with a rag in we hand
10,000 woman wining for the festival
this love
is unconditional

Great lyrics! Machel run tings.

Machel is the best..period!!
by: Rachel

It doesnt matter what Machel Montano sing, old or new, original or not, he is still the best soca artiste ever. All u haters with nothing good to say, try doing what he does, bring it to the people, and u will not last 30 seconds.There is no real good carnival fete without Machel, and carnival dead if he gone.Even if the tempo of his music not as hyped as last year, he is still the best for 2008 when compared to all the other struggling soca artiste. who u think better?? Bunji? Sherwyn? i think not.Until someone else could come out better than machel, dont hate the playa, hate the game!!

MACHEL ALWAYS BRING DI HEAT!!!!!!
by: TRINI

I definitely agree with Rachel. Machel Montano is the King of Soca, he is the hence man of the world. Machel has been at it for sooooo many years since he was knee high. And yes, to all them haters who have nothing good to say need to *expletive removed*. They don't know what Machel does go true to keep di crowd jumpin and bring out them hot tunes. It doesn't matter how old or new, we Trinidadians does go crazy for him and we rel loveeeeeeeeee him. I don't care what people say about him, I still love and respect him. He has excellent, scandalous, delirious music. I LOVE ALL OF HIS MUSIC. FROM OLD TO NEW!!!! HE DOES STILL BRING DI HEAT AND ALWAYS HAVE DI CROWD JUMPING. IT'S ALWAYS BEEN MACHEL. I rel love he new songs boi. "Unconditional Love," "Jamishness" "Make Love," "Whining Season," "We Will Live," and "Blazin Di Trail," dat one rellll bad boi. Meaning dat song rellll sweet. :) I don't know where in this world will there be a fete(party) without Machel Montano. He is di GOD OF SOCA, DI KING OF SOCA, DI HENCE MAN OF DI WHOLE WIDE WORLD. HE IS BLESSED AND HAVE A SPECIAL GIFT. NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT HE, AND NO MATTER HOW MUCH HE CHANGE....I STILL LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE MACHEL SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH, AND THAT'S NEVER GOING TO CHANGE. When I tell you I really and truely adore Machel....my whole I-pod is filled with nothing but Machel Montano's songs from old to new. Yes I am a Machel Montano feen and a Machel Montano fan. Whenever anybody talk bad or say stupid things about him, I fix them rel good, meaning I put people in their place. Because they have nothing good to say and just want to run they traps. PUT A SOCK IN IT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE NOTHING GOOD TO SAY, THEN DON'T SAY NOTHING. Do you think Machel does have time to study and listen to what people say about him??? HELL NOOOOOO. He don't have time for all that nonsense. He has a life too and don't give ah damm what people think or say. That's him, just let him be. When we Trinidadians and Tobagoians does fete, we don't study anybody and their stupidness. When we playing mass, we does wine up, jump up, prance up and does have a rel good time. We don't care who coming, who watching, we are di most united and most boldest people on this earth. We does have respect. We don't disrespect anybody and their culture. We don't take *expletive deleted* from nobody. We are cool people, we love to lime(hang out), fete(party) and have a good time. So to all them haters out there that's talking all kind of *expletive deleted* about Machel can go kik rocks. He don't live to please anybody, he just do the dam thing and do what he gotta do. I STILL LOVE MACHEL AND FOR THOSE WHO THINK OTHERWISE CAN *expletive deleted*. PEACE OUT HATERS.
