It's amazing,Destra Garcia has the best song for "Road March"2009 with "Baccannal". Today is Carnival Sunday,and the Express Newspaper headline is predicting a win for "Meet Super Blue"Why is it that you have to look "grassroots" in Trinidad & Tobago to be "bigged Up" by the syndicate of DJ's and SocaBands? This nonesense keep happening year after year.

simply a better song
by: Anonymous

So why can't it just be that Faye has the better song? Destra didn't even place in the top 3 at soca monarch. Is that to do with looking "gras roots" too? No. Meet Super Blue is simply a nicer song in my opinion. There are parts of Destra's bacchanal that sound as if there is no tune.

Destra never competed at soca monarch

Anonymous,

Destra didn't compete. It was simply an appearance.

ok my bad about soca monarch. However I stand by my other statement that Faye's road march song sounds better than Destra's.

Bacchanal isn't good enough for RM 2009
by: Anonymous

Faye Ann's song is much better than Destra's song. Destra needs to stick to soca and stop trying to make it R&B or some other crap music. The beginning of her song is good, then it declines after that. And yes, I've heard many comments that her song doesn't appear to have many lyrics.
