Phew...for a second there I thought they took Captain Morgan off the market...
That wouldn't even scratch the surface of cringe-worthy songs on my playlist.
Several Milli Vanilli and Spice Girls songs may top the list
Love Will Keep Us Together and You Better Shop Around are two awesome songs. Muskrat Love, not so much. I always thought it was sad when I read that they had gotten divorced a few years ago, but it looks like they were together in the end. RIP to the Captain.
Never knew he was classically trained.
Daryl Dragon, Captain of Captain & Tennille, dead at 76
Although I'm more of an Appleton Estate guy myself I did observe that Captain getting killed over the holidays, however he has substantially more lives than our Sammy. Maybe even as many as Jason Vorhees...or Wade Phillips
Its a good bad song. In other words its a good example of a bad song. In this case more like a putrid song.
If somebody complains about another one of my lame threads, I will use this as a example of "every thread matters".
Seriously tho, I'm was never a C&T fan, but remember them being a popular act as a youngster.
As a fellow musician and lover of music in general, it's sucks to see a story like this.
.. and of course I feel for the family most of all.
I heard 'muskrat love' so many times that it's probably become ingrained in my DNA.
I’m gonna try it tonight. I’ll try and get back to you while I’m ducking objects being thrown in my direction.
Fun Fact: Toni Tennille is credited with appearing on Pink Floyd's The Wall album. I wonder if she might be the voice of either the Operator or of the girl he brings to his hotel room.
I thought you were going to tell me Captain Stone died.
Don’t scare me like that. Someone has to like my posts
Although not written by them, America did a version before them.
Me being a young acoustic guitar player, at the time (before my "Hair Metal, dive bar circuit fiasco"), loved America.
This song, not so much.
...And if I can bore you even more, this song was written by Willis Alan Ramsey in '72.
And might be the best version of this song IMO.
It was originally titled "Muskrat Candlelight" , I believe.
America made it fairly popular, then the "Cap'n" made it mainstream TV land gold.
That's my useless contribution of the year... which started yesterday.
Begging for likes? Awesome!!!!
Captain died?!? Oh no! I didn't see that coming. I'm going to pull out the old vinyl and listen to "Love will keep us together".
early 70s, I was maybe 9 years old, I went to a state fair with my uncle & cousins. We got tickets to see Captain & Tennille perform. My first concert ever!
muskrat love? you play that within 1000 yards of me and I'll petition the state to have you summarily executed at dawn by firing squad.
If he did not die probably would not have even remembered them, now getting flashbacks to really crappy, "cute" music that somehow appealed to the masses and flooded the airwaves... Isn't that music lovely, dahling???
It was terrible and growing up in the 70s I heard it ......all....the...f-ing......time
He went down with the ship.
Sonny and Cher.
Poor Sonny hit a pine tree, but that old hag Cher is still around running her mouth.
