Musical Youth

The success that was predicted for teenaged ska and reggae band Musical Youth when their pro-marijuana single "Pass the Dutchie" sold more than four million copies in 1982 failed to come to fruition. Within three years, the band, who featured vocalist Dennis Seaton, keyboardist Michael Grant, and the Waite brothers -- Patrick, who played bass and Freddie Junior, who played drums -- had gone their separate ways. Although a reunion was conceived in 1993, the premature death of Patrick Waite at the age of 30 while in police custody put an end to these plans. The members of Musical Youth were attending Duddleston Manor School in Birmingham when the group was formed by the Waite brothers and their father, Frederick Waite, a former member of Jamaican vocal group the Techniques, who initially handled lead vocals. After the band signed with MCA in 1981, Dennis Seaton was recruited to sing lead. The following year, they hit gold with their single "Pass the Dutchie," based on the Mighty Diamonds' hit "Pass the Kouchie." Although the band released several subsequent singles, including "Unconditional Love" with Donna Summer and "Sixteen," they were unable to match the success of "Pass the Dutchie." The group splintered after the departure of Seaton in 1985. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Love Musical Youth.
Jackson 5 of reggae
Still love the youths. Wish they could get together again. I still listen their musics. They were clearly mismanaged by greedy people.saw them in Trinidad many years ago and they really stayed with me big up and respect always. R I P Patrick. Peace and blessings

You're right, dutchie is referring to a pot, as in pot and pan... To actually say joint or spliff on the radio in ultra conservative Jamaica would never have gone over... So dutchie is code so to speak. In other words, it's about gettin ripped
Sometimes we quibble about things inconsequent i a l . . . . i t ' s art, we'll see, hear, feel different vibrations because of our varying idiosyncraci e s . . . . . h e r b , food, etc.,,,it's all good. Blessed love, and lets focus on how we can trample that evil beast that exploits with out mercy.
These poor kids were miss managed and that is why they failed in the music world. That is too bad
It means whatever you want it to mean. That's the beauty of music, it's relative.
Our definition for Dutch today is different than the meaning in this song...
No...This song is about passing the dutche (prob spelled that wrong)None the less,this song IS about starving.... p a s s i n g the dutche is passing a Cooking pot used to cook soup...Like a Dutch cooker...Alt h o u g h I am Pro-Pot,this song has nothing to do with the Herbs...It has to do with passing a single dutch of soup to feed a village...

ver adorable & hemp sooo needs to be free in US as it is the best omega-3, softest oil, longest lasting fabris, tree replacer, humane, hardy(not needing much fertilizer & no pestisides!! ! ) , protien -seeds &tranquilize r - p a i n reliever, appetite stimuland for sick people-elder l y , etc. Oh The Planet=-scei e n t i f i c u l l y proven!! why should we have mass consumption of piosoned plants, foods, drugs, alcohol(resp o n s i b l e 4 over 75% of deaths!!!)wh e n it has been used by Virtually every culture for all ages,
Reminds me of my second trip to London
Actually it is definitely pro pot. They changed the obvious pot reference from the original "How does it feel when you got no herb?", to be about food to make it easier to release the song. And a "Dutchie" is a blunt rolled with a Dutch Master cigar. A dutch oven is something you cook in. Or when you f*rt under the sheets.
Reshma is correct. Don't confuse pass the "Dutchie" with pass the "Kutchie".
luckforty
and maybe they arent from jamaica but the people who got the band together were and they werent talking about heating equiptment
luckforty
not pro-marijaun a ? you got to be kidding! whose going to sing about a pot (dutchoven) especially when your from jamaica. Not musical youth. trust me.
mmmmm
this song is not pro-marijuan a . The "dutchie" that they are referring to is a dutch oven (a type of pot) and its talking about hunger.
this is avery catchy song...I love it. Me encanta

this reminds me of my childhood. My parent's had this record and would play it on the weekends.
this kids have some talent
ME TOO, Kriss, of Krissncleo. I WAS LIKE 10. I REMEMBER MY OLDEST SIS HAD THIS
VERY RECORD.
I think that this was the first reggae song that I ever herd. I don't know which came out first this or Eddie Grant's "Electric Avenue", but it is first or second. Good memories.
