the Letter P: The Partridge Family still makes my little hippy heart go pitter patter

I was nine years old when the show first aired in 1970 and 13 years old at the final episode in 1974. Talk about the formative years!

Did you know that The Partridge Family show was actually based on the real live Cowsills family, who were one of the most musically gifted American Families to hit the top of the pop charts in the late sixties?

The Cowsills:

Of course every girl in the world was in love with David Cassidy. But I kind of liked Danny Bonaduce. He was only a year older than me. And he played the bass. I like the bass.

Hello, world, hear the song that we’re singin’

C’mon get happy! A whole lot of lovin’ is what we’ll be bringin’ We’ll make you happy!

We had a dream, we’d go travelin’ together,

We’d spread a little lovin’ then we’d keep movin’ on. Somethin’ always happens whenever we’re together We get a happy feelin’ when we’re singing a song.

Trav’lin’ along there’s a song that we’re singin’

C’mon get happy! A whole lot of lovin’ is what we’ll be bringin’ We’ll make you happy! We’ll make you happy! We’ll make you happy!
