Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Recently everyone's best friend Shady Del Knight mentioned Three Dog Knight in a post (yes, that's intentional), which you can read HERE. I still have all my Three Dog Night albums, including one that's autographed by two of the dogs.
The post made me think of my favorite Three Dog Night song, so I must share it with you.
Infinities of old-fashioned love,
I have never heard of them until this moment.ReplyDelete
GREAT song! I just got this stuck in my head the last two days (only recently dethroned when I was in a supermarket and they played "Shake it Off") because when I heard there was a blizzard coming to the northeast so I immediately thought of the saying that "it's going to be a three-dog night." Now it all comes full circle!ReplyDelete
Hi, dear Janie Junebug! Thank you very much for the plug. I remember being bowled over in 1969 the first time I heard Three Dog Night's first single, a soft rock interpretation of "Try a Little Tenderness," a 1930s song made popular in the rock 'n' roll era by Otis Redding backed by Booker T. & the M.G.'s. From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Three Dog Night was a fixture on the radio. They had an impressive string of hits that included 9 singles in the top 5 and 3 that topped the chart. Three Dog Night recorded some of the most iconic songs of the century including the one you posted here written by Paul Williams. Three Dog Night is ranked the #8 act of the 70s and #37 for the entire 30 year period from 1955 through 1984.ReplyDelete
Thank you again for your active participation in SDMM, dear Janie, and for being such a wonderful friend!
Love that song, Janie...I'll have it rolling around in my brain the rest of the day!ReplyDelete
Sorry I don't know the song. But if it makes you feel good and bring back great memories, that's all that counts.ReplyDelete
Oh, I loved Three Dog Night too back in the day! This is a great video -- and no lip syncing there! I still like gorgeous long hair on men but the lead singer's porn 'stache HAS to go!ReplyDelete
Mine is Jeremiah was a Bullfrog. This one is good too. Excellent band.ReplyDelete
That is awesome that you have it signed by tow of the three. I remember listening to that song in my dad's garage while he fixed things.ReplyDelete
Hands down my favorite Three Dog Night song! Although I like Family of Man. The song, not the people. I have enough mouths to feed.ReplyDelete
That was so long ago.ReplyDelete
Old fashion and I love it.ReplyDelete
I like Joy To The World.ReplyDelete
I haven't heard this song in ages. Thanks for bringing back the memories!ReplyDelete
My favorite is "Out in the Country," however this will do for the day, Janie! (smile)ReplyDelete
A great song that brings back a flood of memories.ReplyDelete
Love this song! Love the group!ReplyDelete
Three Dog Night did the best version of this song ever! I didn't even like when Paul Williams did this one, and he wrote it. Love, love, love them.ReplyDelete
I nominated you for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award!
It's been a long time since I heard this one. Thanks for sharing it.ReplyDelete
