De Fosto’s “Pan Lamentation” may be the tune of choice at this year’s Panorama but four songs from Crazy’s repertoire have found favour with the steelbands ie “Sharing Licks”, “One Foot Cock “,“Band From Space” and “Pan Music Sweet”.

At the close of registration, fourteen (14) bands opted to perform the Winston Scarborough (De Original De Fosto Himself) composition.

Running second in terms of popularity is the Len “Boogsie” Sharpe/Anthony Alexis’ “Sharing Licks” sung by Crazy with ten (10) plays while Sparrow’s “Doh Back Back” and Robin Immansah/Gary Dore’s “Johnny” vocalized by Colleen Ella & Taxi are the tunes of choice of four (4) bands.

Other tunes in the mix include “Spirit of Carnival” composed by Mark Loquan sung by Denyse Plummer, “Sugar Boy” by Patrice Roberts, “Band From Space” composed by Amrit Samaroo and sung by Crazy, “One Foot Cock” sung by Crazy, “Can’t Get Enough” composed by Alvin Daniell/Don Clarke and sung by Eunice Peters with three (3) plays each.

Other favourites among the bands are “I Dare You”, “What I Want”, “Soca Is It”, “We Love Carnival”, “Free Up”, “Ah Tell She’, “Lorraine” and “Tiney Winey”.
