Bizarre Idea of What Was Popular Then
21 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

I've always remembered this episode for one reference made by Lynda Day George, who is a young woman marrying an older man (Leslie Neilsen).

When Neilsen is reminiscing with a woman 'closer to his age' and they are singing "I'll Be Seeing You" (the old WWII song), Lynda Day is supposed to be out of the loop and quips "Donny and Marie, right?" Okay, it was '78. Can't off the top of my head recall who was it then, but it was NOT Donny and Marie, not music-wise anyway, and certainly not for a woman Lynda's age (even if she was supposed to be perceived as younger than her thirty-plus years).

"I'll Be Seeing You" if I am not mistaken, is played in a Peanuts cartoon (during one of Snoopy's WWII adventures, of course), so kids my age knew that song without having to think Donny and Marie (I am over 20 years younger than Day George).

As well as the song is neither country nor rock'n'roll. Please! Another episode of Love Boat, with Jimmy Baio and Melissa Gilbert, likewise makes a reference to Donny Osmond being a phenomenal singer. Not in the late seventies, whatever he managed to do in the early seventies.

Still I suppose it was really one ABC show promoting another, no doubt. But I have just never forgotten it.

By the time I was Lynda Day George's age, I was completely unaware as to who the hip, up-to-date younger crowd singers were.
