Lord Melody (born Fitzroy Alexander) had a lengthy career that spanned from the early days of calypso in the late-'40s to the reggae of the late-'70s. Remembered for his witty lyricism, Lord Melody wrote and recorded such calypso hit tunes as "Berlin on a Donkey," "Jonah and the Bake," "Boo Boo Man and the Creature From the Black Lagoon," and "Hurricane Janet." His greatest success came when Harry Belafonte recorded his songs "Mama Look A Boo Boo" and "Juanita." Lord Melody subsequently toured with Belafonte. In the late-'70s, Lord Melody veered towards reggae, recording such tunes as "Rastaman Be Careful" and "Brown Sugar." ~ Craig Harris~ Rovi
