Listening To- Musical Youth

click pause on the player first ---->

I had so much fun with the Eddy Grant Electric Avenue video from yesterday I thought today we'd head to 1982 and Pass The Dutchie with Musical Youth

Musical Youth- Pass The Dutchie


Stylestance commented "Ha, I remember the controversy surrounding this song (ie, what exactly is a dutchie?)"

So, I figured I should edit the post to include the answer in case others didn't know.

The controversy stemmed from the original song "Pass the Kutchie" by The Mighty Diamonds is about passing a joint around. When they did the kid friendly remake version for Musical Youth they changed it to "Dutchie" a dutchie being a large cooking pot. This fits in perfectly with the lyric "how does it feel when you got no food?"

Here's the original version of the song Pass The Kutchie by The Mighty Diamonds:
