C&T also had their own hit records. You may recognize a few of them, or not, such as: Do That To Me One More Time, Muskrat Love, Love Will Keep Us Together, and other assorted songs that are now too happy and buoyant for modern children.
My favorite part of the show was a serial sketch called the Bionic Watermelon, which fell under the so dumb it was hysterical classification. It was a send up of the various Bionic shows of the time: Bionic Man, Bionic Woman, Bionic Banana, and who remembers what else.
Well, why do I bring these guys up?
First of all, they have a website, and bless me a new album of Christmas songs (available any day now, at Amazon).
Tennille has a blog:
I have decided, in my “Senior Years,” that I am going to start a blog. Well....not really a blog...more like a weekly column of thoughts and musings about whatever comes to my mind at the time. After all, Daryl and I are both well into our 60s now....I just turned 66 in May (can’t believe it myself), and I think I have the right to say whatever the heck I want to.Way to go.
Some clips from C&T are available on YouTube, of course. Tennille even links to some of them from her site.
Note the following little extra text she adds next to one of the links:
www.YouTube.com has a karaoke version of Love Will Keep Us Together from a duet that we believe come pretty close to 'the real thing'. See if you agree. Hopefully, Neil Sedaka won't ask that the video clip be removed, because of royalty issue.Even Tennille worries about the possibility that someone will take down a poorly-shot, poor sound quality, satiric, karaoke version of her own, most famous chart-busting hit, to which she links! As if its presence dilutes the earning potential of the original somehow.
Brazil ... is here.
