Hey Girl Whatcha Doing?

Love is in da blog

Happy February! I’m participating in Bee’s fun music challenge again and hope you’ll join in (you don’t have to play every day).

Today’s theme is a pop song about love and I’m sharing a Dawn tune. “Knock Three Times” was a pop hit back in 1971 and given a lot of airtime. It was not credited to Tony Orlando & Dawn, according to Wikipedia, because that group hadn’t formed yet (with the “Dawn” we know as Thelma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson). Tony Orlando was working for a rival music company and tried to fly under the radar by recording this song with the other musicians as Dawn. It hit Billboard’s #1 in the US and other countries too.

  3. Trivia: I ran into Joyce Vincent Wilson at my junior college (school year 1980/81). She was 27 at the time and was going back to college for a career change. I remember we admired her willingness to make that kind of change.
