Everybody Sing: "Oh, What a Night"

"Late September back in ..." That reference is for missymussy. Can you name the group? The song? The year? (Missy is a great one for pop trivia.)

Anyway, it was quite a night of dreaming. First, a big bear had singled me out from a group of friends to eat! We were at a neighbor's home from my childhood and the bear was doing damage in its attempt to grab me as I scrambled through rooms, windows and over cars. I hitched a ride to escape.

Then the landscape changed. I was with Dustin exploring some historical builings on a tiny island of sand. Unfortunately, to return to the boat, I had to swim through the ocean--and the island was encircled with huge sharks! Again, a change of scenery was appreciated.

Now I was visiting Doug here in Albuquerque whose loft apartment is in a converted high school. As we were appreciating the loft, it began to fill with water and the entire building began collapsing like pancakes being folded in half! We escaped out the back door.

The night ended fairly benignly with Wendell from CA showing up to visit just as I finished telling Odette that I would love to form a Cat Club with her, but that I don't own a cat.

Can't wait to see what this day holds!

That song was a big hit for about three weeks in the seventies. Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons. I associate that song with these songs: Playground in my Mind, Knock Three Times, The Night Chicago Died.

I have a cat. A white cat. She's spayed. She's had her shots. She's driving me up the wall. Please take my cat, this will help you start your catclub.

Doug and Kyle (no bears, cats, sharks, or floods in sight)

Arghhh, Sister! Your mention of "Knock Three Times" has that song running endlessly through my mind. I am trying to purge it by playing my Tony Orlando and Dawn CD.

There were actually two women who sang with Tony--not just one named "Dawn." That name came from the group's original name, meaning, I guess, the sunrise. Can you name the two women?

Sister said...

I always just called them Dawn. I remember that being a bit confusing as a pup. I always thought one looked like a "Telma" and the other looked like "Joyce."

For a dog, sister sure has a keen eye for the babes.
