Misc. Remembrance:

When I was 5 years old my cousin Mary gave me a box of her old 45 records that she didn't want anymore. My hands-down fave was the above: "I Think I Love You" by The Partridge Family. The song was 3 years old at the time, but I'd never heard it before and I was hooked on it. I played that thing over and over. I remember the "bell" logo and the red sleeve. And sometimes I'd move the record needle to where the harpsicord instrumental would play. Come to think of it, that song was such a monster smash hit back in the day, and yet the oldies stations never seem to play it anymore. If they did, I think I'd listen to it. It always brings back good memories.

Even though I was never a huge Partridge Family fan (I was a Brady Bunch Girl) I always did love that song.

I still have the 7 Partridge Family albums I bought back then.

CTG: Yeah it was a good song. I think it was their only hit.

Janet: Do you still have a record player? Of course 40 years ago that would've been a dumb question. Who knew record players would become an endagered species.

I know, seriously; poor old technology. But I do have a record player, one of those Crosley ye olde-fashioned looking ones. (I also have a VCR and a manual typewriter.)

The Partridges actually had quite a few top-40 hits, like 6 or 8, and so did David Cassidy on his own.
