Steve Lawrence took this to #1 in 1963- and Donny Osmond’s cover- returned it to the top spot 8 years later. Why? Wasn’t the first time bad enough? Listen at your own risk.
My sister wants to mail in a grade from 1971.. .A+ but I’ll cancel her out with a 0 …I actually pushed the play button…I will regret that all day.
I don’t know if I ever revealed this- about 30 years ago I had a dream that I was married to Marie Osmond…which would have made me well a member of the Osmond family. Maybe that is why I am such a fanatic! lol… Hans Osmond!!
Now that is a nightmare…teeth and all…my falling into a snake pit reoccurring dream has nothing on that!
Wow…Ron-nie and Marie
No you didn’t…😳
Ronnie & Marie…😖😝😆
You are so bad…😈😎😆
Oh dear god…
Looked at the title and thought “oh, must be Hans’ turn in the song draft!”, LOL
Unquestionably one of the worst songs of the 1970s, or ever! I’m still in shock this spent three weeks at #1 in the same year as “Me and Bobby McGee”, “It’s Too Late” and “Maggie May” (which followed it). But in looking back at the songs that hit #1 in 1971, most were either fantastic or dreadful, with little in-between.
Followed by Puppy Love…😖
It’s an ok song as far as The Osmond cult goes, but I never got over their pasty pablum attempts to compete with The Jackson 5. No contest! I love the comments that this song generated. Still laughing over your dream you were married to Marie Osmond lol
Not going to listen to it but looking at the album cover was my comedy moment of the morning 😀
