Tony Orlando & Dawn – Knock Three Times

Having spent most of my morning being subjected to terrible, terrible easy listening and awful holiday tunes, I thought I’d spread the pain a little by giving up a little Tony Orlando & Dawn action.  This clip for ”Knock Three Times“ may be the cheapest video ever made, but hey…. it’s still a damn catchy tune.  Just be thankful I’m not being mean and posting some soul melting Christmas song butchered by Sarah McLaughlin or some such.

You know, when I take over humanity after the inevitable war against the machines, I’m going to decree that the only holiday music allowed be either Leon Redbone’s “Christmas Island”, or Elvis’s “Blue Christmas”.  No exceptions.

Thanks to the always awesome Bedazzled blog for the find.

    Dude….you are missing some amazing XMAS music:

    Pick up James Brown’s Funky XMAS or Lou Rawls XMAS album from the 70’s.

    It will make your head spin.

    No, no. My decision has been made.

    You are missing out, my man……and you don’t seem like a person who misses out on much, as you have hipped me to some of the coolest peripheral shit on the web.

    Great site, BTW.  I check it every day.

    PS.  It pains me that can you pass up The Godfather of Soul singing “Santa Claus, Come Straight To the Ghetto.” Brilliant, funny, soulful stuff….and a great break from that horrible McCartney XMAS song.

    Everyone seems to have overlooked the fact that Twisted Sister put out a Christmas album this year.

    I wish I was one of those people.

    Way to give away my biggest holiday surprise.
