    LOL Allyuh still stressing about this song and think 15 jealous bitter people opinions on imix matter over the majority of people that like PYF? The fact that it won Machal two million dollars must be really burning some of allyuh. LOL At the dude singing and calling himself a monkey on National television making a complete fool of himself. Machel is doing him and getting richer by the minute.

    What does not liking the song have to do with jealousy?

    Isn't this the typical behavior that has created so much tribulation on islandmix? Why is the 758 version considered good... because it was remixed in St. Lucia? This is the typical island kankalang that leads to so much turmoil.

    Now don't get me wrong they did a wonderful job but that mix did not win anything! The Precision RoadMix is the version that swept the competition for Carnival 2012.

    This song was originally created to be a commercial (as per Machel and Kernal Roberts (the main writer of the original jingle). What a lot of those hating the song fail to grasp is how an idea became a song and one that with the right planning took it all.

    So stop for a moment and realize that Machel and the HD team are extremely intelligent and know this music business better than everyone commenting in these threads!

    You (speaking in general terms) can continue to hate the song call it garbage or what ever but who is on the winning team today.... You or Machel and the HD team?

    The tension in Trinidad was really bad at soca monarch. Some fanantics were ready to take it to the next level. So riot police was on standby. The other soca artists that are not willing to step-up their game. However, grown adults singing and acting like a chicken and monkey on stage is a bigger problem. So going on and on about not liking PYF does not and will not change the FACT that 5 x times as many people like PYF in the "Real world".lol

    Message to die-hard Machel fans:

    Breathe for a second when people say they do not like something that Machel does. I am a big Machel fan, but not a die-hard person that has to like everything he does because 'he's the greatest'. I don't let his past greatness cloud my judgement of a song. It is literally impossible for any musician to please my ears every time with every song. Even people who I think are the greatest musicians of all time (e.g. Bob Marley) have songs I don't like.

    I think most of Machels songs are great. That's an amazing statement for a man who has been in the game for 30 years. This year was one of his top 5 years imo, and every slow song was incredible. That being said, I don't like Pump Yuh Flag and I believe if KMC sang it, the die-hard Machel fans would say "It's tata and he only singing bout rag and he should give it up". Because it's Machel, the song is 'gold' and a Road March.

    Any rational person knows Machel is a phenomenal artist, just be understanding that someone can actually not like a Machel song and call that song 'tata' and still respect Machel. Man...I think he's probably the greatest soca artist of all time...but that being said...my opinion is PYF is weak song at best and will not make any playlist I'm making this year.

    I give it a 3.
