Reminisce With Three Dog Night’s ‘Just An Old Fashioned Love Song’

It was 1971 when “Just An Old Fashioned Love Song” was playing on everybody’s radio.

Gas never went over 35 cents. Walt Disney World Resort opened in Florida, the voting age was lowered to 18, postage was just 8 cents, a movie ticket was just $1.50, and The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour was playing on everyone’s TV sets.

Sometimes last-minute decisions are the best ones. It is unbelievable that a band can misjudge what song is to be a big hit. This song was given a second chance.

In 1971 Three Dog Night made a last-minute decision to include “An Old Fashion Love Song” on their album “Harmony.”

The song was undoubtedly loved by their fans as it was one of their biggest hits.

Danny Hutton, Cory Wells, and singer Chuck Negron don’t miss a beat even though Danny continually tries to make his bandmates laugh with his antics during the song.

Interestingly the song was written for another band, The Carpenters, but they turned it down.

Then Paul Williams offered it to Three Dog Night who took it to number four spot on the charts in 1971.
