Great song! I grew up listening to their music too. I remember our class singing "Joy to the World" for some sort of school program when I was in middle school.
Shambala is my favorite, too -- even though the lyrics don't make any sense to me! I like "Just an Old Fashioned Love Song" because I had a babysitter who played that 45 over and over again. "Family of Man" is a great song. :)
love them and that song, but never quite realized...how many freaking people were in that band? there's like 7 guys. did they start jamming waiting for a pick up baseball game or were they all like, awww, you can be in the band, too.???
Ha! True, but the Doobie Brothers had them beat. They had at least 14 guys in there. I remember a few years ago when their drummer died, someone said, "So? They've got like three of them, don't they?"
