So just by referring to the music as Soca in the first place you have to go by his definition!
    The only way around Shorty's definition is to call the music some other name and then your current debate might make some sense to people like me who actually understand what Soca really is! The problem is that not many people understand what Soca is and most are confused!

    Unfortunately in your confusion you might be in the majority and that is the main problem that has kept Soca from progressing and appealing to the widest possible audience as it was originally designed to do!!

    Very few of the early Soca hits were on the topic of Carnival but instead were focused on international topics of interest that anyone anywhere can relate to!
    Ask yourself why was that and you will understand why Soca has currently lost its way and is suffering from a seasonal love affair by most who claim to love it!

    Cool but a lot of the "Soca" songs that come out now do not have the same beat so technically they should not be called soca but they are simply by vertue of the fact that they were released for Carnival.

    Take Kevin Lyttle's Turn Me On, it is considered "Soca" because it was released for Carnival. I will get a lot of disagreement here but I am 100% sure that exact same song came out in October it would have been seen as a Dancehall, RnB or Pop song.

    I am not disrespecting soca just stating a fact, in this current era a song is "Soca" primarily" because the song came out for Carnival/Crop Over.
    So ah have tuh look for another genre name for meh Baron Christmas album which I always thought was straight soca.
