Throwback Jam of the Week: 8/15/22

  Throw on your cut-off t-shirt and get some food as we take you back to the 80s! Without further ado, here is the 20 Years Before 2000 THROWBACK JAM OF THE WEEK!

Artist: Musical Youth
Song: Pass The Dutchie
Album: The Youth Of Today (1982)
Peak Billboard Hot 100 Position: 10
Bonus Fun Facts: This song covers parts of the song "Pass The Kouchie" by Mighty Diamonds. That song references marijuana culture whereas the lyrics for this song have been changed to "Pass The Dutchie" which allegedly is in reference to a Dutch Oven or food!

  1. While I won't profess to be a fan of Musical Youth, their song, Pass The Dutchie, is classic to the 80's. It's a shame that their two albums, The Youth Of Today (1982), and Different Style (1983), were never released on CD. Lost pop culture.

    1. That is true. A big missed opportunity for a younger audience to discover their music. My daughter was introduced to this song via Stranger Things: Season 4!

  3. First heard this song when the group performed it on SNL in 1983 (with host Joan Rivers (!)).

    It's also heard briefly in the 2002 Scooby-Doo movie, but doesn't show up on the soundtrack album. Oddly, it's appearance in that film isn't even mentioned on the song's Wiki page, while it's placement in Stranger Things is.

  4. Hmmm...that is a strange occurrence! Better get the Mystery Inc. team on the case!
