One Groovy Flashback.


My daughter brought me home a present yesterday: an old Partridge Family album. Yes, an album!! (She has a record player because they're cool again, apparently.)

So, for some humpday fun, let's take a trip in the wayback machine:



And for the kids, here's the version on my daughter's iPod by Less than Jake:



If you want to know the truth, I wanted to be Laurie more than I loved David Cassidy.

omg - that first picture took me *right* back! i remember staring into his eyes on album covers for probably way too long to be considered healthy!

I thought I wanted to be Laurie more too, until I saw that picture of David... he was quite the lovely beast, wasn't he.

What ever Less than Jake is, that "cover" is an abomination. Please leave my childhood alone!

Flashbacks to my mustard, red and pea green plaid pants. I would stare at the cover for hours while I sang in my reynolds wrap microphone.The bus was sweet, too.

Less Than Jake! You are the 2nd coolest mom ever Gorgeous! (2nd to my mom.)

Wait...I'm a mom....

That was a great childhood flashback. I so wanted to be a Partridge.

Thanks, HG!

I just stumbled across your blog, and you had me at "Hello, Gor... David Cassidy!" I'm only 23, but I had the HUGEST crush on him growing up. "I think I love you" is still one of my favorite songs!

Oh, Paul, get with it, baby.

g: I had the matching midi coat with yellow faux fur!

Greta: I get all the best stuff from my girl's iPod.

Raina: You can still be a Partridge. Get a moving on some more peas, get a bus. It might not be the worst idea in this economy. Tell me, can the Pea carry a tune?

Vicki: I liked Peter, of course, while the rest of the world loved Davey. Peter??!!

Ha! Welcome, S.logan.

You guys crack me up. I'm too old to have seen anything Partridge - but my husband tells me he enjoyed the show. During that period I threw away my TV and lived without one. So I'd be lost on a game show with questions about the 70's and 80's.

Ahhh David Cassidy...he's one cool dude back in the day. Now you know my age...and it was supposed to be a secret.

I wanted to be Laurie too.
