Digging up this old thread for a slightly on-topic post -- I heard a song on the radio this morning about Santa moving to the West Indies. I'd never heard it before, was hoping to find it online and share with friends off-island.

Starts off talking about how Santa used to be fat and pale, now lost all that weight since he move to the Caribbean and become so tan, he's now a black man. Instead of milk and cookies, now he gets mango and banana. Can't come in through the chimney, so he come in through your window (OK, that part is admittedly a little sketchy).

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Do you know the artist or, better yet, where I can find a recording?

That's not it, but good find. This tune was more calypso, less reggae.
