Some of you may remember last week we took a trip to the Caribbean to ring in the 1992 New Year. Here we have a quote from writer, director, composer (and a lot of other things) W.D. Stevens about that particular story:
"To be honest, the story came about purely because I was studying the history of music in a subject at uni and we came to reggae and we'd done some in our ensembles and it was just so fun that I just wanted a reason to write a reggae song - not that you need a reason, really. But I thought 'let's set a story in the Caribbean'. Just to do something differently and an excuse to have a party. Since it was a New Years story I wanted to have a reggae version of Auld Lang Syne which I found by an artist called Dillinger. Then I wanted a well-known song to have covered and, since it was about the Doctor and his friends (plus being a huge Beatles fan myself) I chose With a Little Help From My Friends by Ellis Island. And that just left the middle song which I got to write which is called Take Me Home written and performed by yours truly. Modestly, of course."
And here is that song. Enjoy!
