10 Top Songs Caribbean Cricket Fans Go Crazy Over

Duke Orsino:

If music be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.

— William Shakespeare — Twelfth Night Act 1, scene 1, 1–3

All things shall perish from under the sky,

Music alone shall live,

Music alone shall live,

Music alone shall live, never to die.

The foregoing rings true to any casual observer of the art form — music.

Life is infused and enveloped by music to the extent that one cannot escape it. Moreover, who would even attempt to take such an ignoble position unless prepared to commit suicide by starving the soul to death?

The fact is the force of music and its impact on society cannot be denied.

Today, technology has made the access to music much easier than before.

Consequently, its global reach can be achieved rather quickly and at a faster pace.

Additionally, music transcends any language barrier, thus giving it a “soulish” connection and appeal.

That said, recently turned to cricket fans on to solicit their feedback on the songs that would push them over the edge.
