LYRICS

Verse 1

Big, big, big storm watch throughout de country,
Everybody jumpy & glued to dey TV.
Dey say massive tornadoes are approaching,
And dey are certain, Trinbago dey hitting.
But dem tornadoes dem were so unreal
‘Cause all de destroying is iron & steel.
When de metal start colliding,
In de centre of dem whirlwind,
Boy yuh talk bout drama, (drama)
In de midst of disaster, (ah ha)
Dem tornadoes sounding like ah thunderous steel orchestra.

Chorus 1

Ah hearing clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang,
Dem tornadoes causing, ah musical whirlwind.
Ah hear clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang,
While de metal swaying, melodic lines playing
Iron & steel start to bounce up,
De chaos so sweet, man eh sure if to run or start to jump up.
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Sweet steel music dem tornadoes bring.

Verse 2

Dem tornadoes bring destruction & mayhem,
Chaos & problems, with melody & rhythm.
People leave dey house & start to follow dem,
So de ODPM & police try to stop dem.
All dey try to get people back indoors
Danger & peril dem people ignore.
Everywhere dem tornadoes pass, people jumping & making mas
Everybody hyper, (hyper)
And like de Pied Piper, (ah ha)
Dem tornadoes had dem hypnotized
Til de storm was over!

Chorus 2

When dey hear clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang,
Dem tornadoes causing, ah musical whirlwind
Dey hear clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang,
While de metal swirling, melodies unfolding
Iron & steel start to bounce ‘round,
De chaos so sweet, man & woman jus start to tumble down
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Sweet steel music dem tornadoes bring.

Bridge

People galvanize get blow ‘way
Man vehicle get tote ‘way,
But dey eh business, dey love de madness.
Every oil drum jus went missing
Scrap metal gone with de wind,
But nobody care, sweet music in de air.
What ah crazy sight to behold as man,
Destruction & euphoria hand in hand.
De more dem tornadoes destroy, is de more de people enjoy,
As de wind get stronger, de music get sweeter,
People in ah uproar, (hey!)
And dey calling for more, (more!!)
Dey say dem tornadoes better come back for Panorama

Chorus 3

To hear dem clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang,
Tornadoes coming & people jumping.
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang,
Tornadoes passing & people jamming
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang,
Tornadoes coming, from down Point Fortin.
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang,
Tornadoes destroying but people enjoying
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang
Clinginingy clangany clang clang clang

In Trinidad & Tobago’s Panorama 2013, two steel orchestras in the small conventional band category - Tornadoes and Morne Diablo Funkadelic played “Not A Pan Tune” as their tune of choice, written and sung by Selvon “Mistah Shak” Noel. Tornadoes Steel Orchestra who hail from Point Fortin, made it all the way to the finals with their performance of Shervon “Shev” Edwards’ arrangement of the selection.

Tornadoes decided they liked the vibe of the song so much, they asked “Mistah Shak” to compose something for them for the 2014 Panorama season. And while he didn't make them any promises, Noel says “I guess it was in the stars, because the inspiration came for this song…”

Tornadoes Steel Orchestra is quite happy with Musical Tornadoes, produced and arranged by Kyle Noel and Selvon Noel, and it is their 2014 Panorama tune of choice. Shervon “Shev” Edwards’ is the arranger of the piece.

Selvon “Mistah Shak” Noel has alerted his fans that he will also release soon, his 2014 ‘calypso tent selection’ called “Bois.”
