A Three Dog Night Sing-A-Long!

M-R’s comment on my previous post reminded me that I’ve done a very poor job of representing one of my favorite bands on this blog – Three Dog Night. The thing is, how does one go about paying tribute to a band that had 21 consecutive top 40 hits? Well, for me at least, the solution is easy…

I’ll simply post the ones that I sang along to the most! 🙂

~ Joy To The World ~

~ Never Been To Spain ~

~ Old Fashioned Love Song ~

~ Liar ~

~ One ~

It occurs to me that when, exactly, it was that I spent so much time singing along to those songs – not to mention the order in which I’ve subconsciously chosen to present them – reveals more than I’d have thought about my very long history with depression… O_o

Anyway, here’s an interesting tidbit from the Wikipedia link for the band:

The official commentary included in the CD set Celebrate: The Three Dog Night Story, 1964–1975 states that vocalist Danny Hutton’s then-girlfriend June Fairchild suggested the name after reading a magazine article about indigenous Australians, in which it was explained that on cold nights they would customarily sleep in a hole in the ground whilst embracing a dingo, a native species of wild dog. On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs and if the night were freezing, it was a “three dog night”.

I invite each and every one of you to include your own Three Dog Night favorites in the comments! 🙂

I want ice water.
