Hans Worst Hits of the 70’s-” Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose” by Dawn-featuring Tony Orlando. Either under the moniker Tony Orlando, Dawn, Dawn featuring Tony Orlando or Tony Orlando and Dawn- there were 17 Top 40 hits, 6 Top 10 and 3#1’s- Knock Three Times, Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree and He Don’t Love You [Like I Love You.} When asked once Nancy Reagan said her favorite song was Tie A Yellow Ribbon Around The Ole Oak Tree. I like listening to the replays of the old American Top 40’s with Casey Kasem from the 70’s and it seems like every week Tony Orlando and Dawn or some form of The Osmonds have a hit in the Top 40. Tony Orlando and Dawn had good timing- their inoffensive, unimaginative and pedestrian pop music were perfect for what America seemed to want in the early 70’s- Nixon and Watergate, Vietnam lingering on, the bad memories of the 60’s still close in the rear view mirror. I don’t hate all those Tony Orlando and Dawn songs- but I can’t say I like them either- they are just there. Tony Orlando and Dawn were to early 70’s pop what Huey Lewis and The News would be to 1980’s rock. Tony Orlando and Dawn even had a television show in the mid 70’s before they wore out their welcome. The song from Tony Orlando and Dawn I picked as the ‘worst hit’- Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose” because for some reason it was stuck in my head yesterday and wouldn’t leave!
