Song of the day: 10CC- Dreadlock Holiday

10cc Alive++The+Very+Best+Of+cover

Yes, this is the best of album by 10cc! All the big hits are on there, but I want to discuss one of them, because there is a rather nice story behind it.
The song of the day, the song I am going to discuss, is a kind of reggae song. You know, it’s Dreadlock Holiday.

A member of the Moody Blues, Justin Hayward, was on holiday together with Eric Steward, who was in 10cc.
They went to Barbados, and the people there want a lot of you.
They decided to go parasailing, and Eric was already behind a speedboat, when some people (with dreadlocks) came to Justin.
They wanted his camera, and when he didn’t want to give it, they wanted his silver necklace.
He kept refusing, and one of the people said to him: “If we were on Jamaica now, I would have done something to you”.
Eric was very concerned, and was happy that he could see the people leave. He wrote this hit about it, and I like that he did!
