I would be surprised if Jimmie "J.J." Walker and Norman Lear didn't sue the record company and the artist for stealing Walker's famous catchphrase, unless they obtained permission for it.

This could only have been a hit in the 1970's

In light of the breakup of The Captain & Tennille, here's a song that I actually liked during the mid-70's...

The original song before Toni Basil changed the words and retitled it as "Mickey", which was a huge hit for her in 1982.

I've enjoyed this thread a lot. Brings back a lot of memories of growing up during the 70s.

And there's nothing wrong with a little cheese from time to time Very Happy

To show you how prevalent the disco craze was back in the late-1970's, here's a non-disco group (The Beach Boys) doing a disco song! It's actually a discofied remake of an earlier tune they recorded in 1967. Shocked

This is 11 minutes long! Play it only if you have lots of time to kill! Wink

And if you're wondering, here's the 1967 original:

I never heard of this song before, until I was cruising though YouTube earlier today. It's from 1971.

"Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep" by aptly-named group, The Middle Of the Road.

...which later got the parody treatment by Cheech & Chong in 1980.

You know a 70's song is cheesy if it's covered by Celine Dion more than 20 years later! Not to mention the various TV commercials that have used the song! Surprised

With the 2016 Democratic and Republican national conventions both over, this might be a good time to bring up a novelty recording about the 1972 Presidential political conventions: "Convention '72" by The Delegates, a Top-40 hit single in 1972.

It was a "break-in" record, made popular in the late-1950's by Dickie Goodman, wherein an interview would take place, but the answers are done in the form of a song. In this case, however, The Delegates was actually a Pittsburgh radio DJ named Bob DeCarlo, and two other local record executives. It features several hit singles from the early-70's.

Enjoy! Cool

I must be a Dr. Demento fan for thinking that this cover version is better than Rod Stewart's mega-hit single! Razz

Donny & Marie Osmond singing a classic tune by Steely Dan. Be afraid. Be very afraid! Surprised
