Song of the Day: 'Do That to Me One More Time' by Captain and Tennille


This one's on heavy rotation at the new coffee place I frequent here in Chelsea. I'm not sure if it's the hipsters working there trying to be ironic or what. but one thing's for certain: I can't get enough Captain and Tennille. I had their bulldog-friendly debut album, "Love Will Keep Us Together," when I was in third grade and I've been a fan ever since, even when Toni ditched her signature hair and opted for the frosted floozy look -- which put them on top of the charts for a second time!

Nice call! Back in the late '90s my friend Andrew appeared in a touring production of "Victor/Victoria" staring Toni Tennille in the title role. Something tells me I'd have much preferred her to Kathy Lee.

C&T are very underrated -- their 4 albums for A&M remain stellar examples of 70s Pop that references R&B and Jazz. Immaculately constructed and hook-laden [seriously: hook after hook after hook], with Tennille's impeccable vocals, it's just great stuff. I think it's 'cos some of their Big Hits were silly songs, but whose aren't?
