35 years ago this month, Ian Dury and the Blockheads’ arguably best known single ‘Reasons to be Cheerful Part 3’ hit its highest position in the charts, ironically No.3

The charts were an eclectic mix of disco, super groups (Police, Supertramp and ABBA) and punk/new wave. Some of us were waiting A Level results with plans for Uni !

Ian managed to list at least 36 reasons, immediately after a near death experience and despite having polio as a child.

There is more information about the record here and why it is particularly relevant to teamwork, health & Safety and Italy

…. and Marketing Projects’ latest eNews!
