Diamond Head - "If That's the Way You Want It" (1973)


Diamond Head - "If That's the Way You Want It" (Billboard #106, entered 5/5/73). Written and produced by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter. 45: "If That's the Way You Want It"/"What Do I Do on Sunday" (Dunhill 1973).

The Southern California quartet Diamond Head took its name from the famous Oahu landmark, and although "If That's the Way You Want It" only reached #106 in Billboard, Hawaiian radio spun it like crazy. Info about this band is elusive, but a 1975 single of theirs on Capitol called "Proud to Be Your Slave," which was written by Steely Dan's Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, has turned up on YouTube. The UK heavy metal band called Diamond Head has no relation to this piña colada crew.
