Remember 8-tracks? Leisure suits? Plaid check everything? Compared to the jumble of life demands now, the early ’70s seem like a sleepy dream. I had the 45 of this song and would play it again and again on the family record player.
It was also in one of my fave movies of all time, “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” Legend is that Sammy Davis, Jr. wanted to be the candy store owner in the movie, but was denied. So he decided to record the song anyway. Glad he did.
What is a song you like from your birth year?
Has it always been a fave or did you discover it years later?
