They were great, but...

To be honest, I never really cared for that song all that much.. and although I don't see a date for this album, I'm guessing circa '76 'cause they're really working that whole red/white/blue thing..

I just got a Captain and Tennille T-shirt off ebay last week. I plan to wear it when Husband wears his Love Boat shirt with Gavin MacLeod "I'm your captain" from CoolStuff. A Captain theme for the boat ride!

(I hated Muskrat Love.)

You never cared for that song? I had to read that sentence twice... you're saying this to make sure I'm paying attention right? Good try.

Notice at the end of the song Toni shouts "Sedaka is back!!" - too true, after a long hiatus, Neil Sedaka was on a roll with this song, Bad Blood, Laughter in the Rain, and a new rendition of Breaking Up Is Hard to Do.

...And even I hate Muskrat Love.

I think I just heard that song lately somewhere but I don't remember. It's one that will be in my head all night.

So is it just me, or do The Captain's glasses make him look like a sleestak???

I'll never admit my fondness for so many of these 70's light pop songs that weaved their way into my psyche as I rode facing backwards in our wood-paneled station wagon, the smell of my mother's Virginia Slim wafting in the air.

You've come a long way, baby..

I did like some of their music. I thought Tennille's hair style was pretty cool! Totally 70s!

I was more of a "Do That To Me One More Time" fan -- it was on my K-Tel "Soundwaves" cassette, which my 6-year-old now plays in his boom box.

Jim: She had a great voice. They made the decade a better place, for sure.

Film Father: I remember K-Tel and Ronco. They were kind of in competition. I loved them both.

muskrat love makes me gag. but i do like some of the others. my ex sister in law grew up and went to school with toni tenille in montgomery, alabama. she said she was a really nice girl.

they never had kids, did they....
toni's sisters were all singers, as well.

"Butterscotch Castle" was way worse than "Muskrat Love".
