That's a great song! What are you talking about? I swear if you did a blindfolded taste test, 99% of music lovers (who don't know the song) would swear it's the Jackson 5.

There are at least three other awesome Osmonds songs: Down by the Lazy River, Crazy Horses (insane!), and Hold Her Tight.

If you can't appreciate the sheer lunacy of the Osmonds getting freaky, I'm not sure I can be friends with you!

Summer in the City by Lovin' Spoonful in the US
Yellow Submarine/Elanor Rigby Beatles in the UK

I also found out not too long ago that the Beatles themselves passed through my small Michigan town via bus the morning I was born. They were heading to Cleveland from Detroit on their last American tour. How cool is that?

I can't remember if it was a GloNo link, but guessing from this comment, maybe it was.

Jake's right. I was mowing the lawn this weekend and this song was going through my head. The sound of the mower hid my imitation of the synth sound. This is a true story and a prime example of how retarded I am.

But it's a bit of a gas at times isn't it?
Sven, is that you again?? If not, the roaming Swede from Stankonia has got some competition.

And Sven (assuming I sussed out the sitchy-ashun ko-rekt-lee), if you're tired of me busting you out on the first comment, please PM me, I'll let it ride from now on, and throw in a code phrase that I sussed ya.

On behalf of my nation, I apologize. Man, and you guys don't even have CanCon regs. So sad.
