Song Challenge- Day Two

Ok, now that we’ve danced a little jig to Charlie Daniel’s “Devil went down to Georgia,” please indulge me while I imagine myself waiting in line to watch “With Six You Get Egg Roll” at Augusta’s Daniel Village Shopping Center Movie Theatre.

The year is ‘fictional 1968,’ and somewhere, in the distance, I can hear one of my favorite pop tunes, “The Rain, The Park and Other Things,” by The Cowsills.

You remember them…right?

They were the family that The Partridge Family was patterned after.

You remember The Partridge Family…right?

You don’t?

GEEEEEZZZZZ!

Anyway, listen as those lovely Cowsill harmonies float through the air!

Not being able to contain myself, I proceed to sing along–changing the words a bit by chanting, “I love the flowers girl, was she reality or just a dream to me?”

Trust me, it makes sense.

 

Today, I nominate Ang from “Out of Tune, Right on Point.”

On a serious note, my friends, we almost lost this beauty back in March so this is my way of sending a hug and a kiss to her while celebrating her wonderful life and our hometown—Augusta.

Love ya Ang!

Lady G 😘💋

    So….
    YOU HAD ME AT “WITH SIX YOU GET EGG ROLL”!!!! That is one of my FAVORITE movies!
    And…
    You HAVE me with today’s song of the day! OMG…I love this tune! When I worked at the oldies radio station, I played this as often as I could. It makes me happy. I didn’t know that they patterned the Partridge Family after them? But when you look at the drummer…Danny played the drums JUST LIKE HIM on the show! So I feel enlightened…and it makes me happy.
    Thank you for the kind words and the nomination! I am thankful to be here…making the most out of every day.
    I promise to do you proud and represent Augusta, proper!
    Love you, friend!
    A

  2. Wow, G, thanks for this blast from the past! I remember the song but didn’t know much about the group. Certainly did NOT know they were the inspiration for the Partridge Family. I just looked them up on Wikipedia. Sad to see some of them died years too young!!! Sigh…

    1. Hi Ellie!
      Yes, they had a very tragic ending. You probably read that one of the brothers was actually a casualty to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans back in ’05.

      They ones that remain still perform. They had some awesome harmonies.

      Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
