Morning Music: Starland Vocal Band

Starland Vocal Band - Afternoon DelightIn an episode of Arrested Development, Michael is angry at his son spending time with his girlfriend, and Maeby is angry at her parents because they are the way they are, so the two of them team up and trying to make the others jealous by paying attention to each other at the company Christmas party. They end up singing a Karaoke version of the Starland Vocal Band’s song “Afternoon Delight.”

If you are my age, you probably know that the song is rather sexy. I remember hearing the song when I was 11 years old and knowing right away that “afternoon delight” was a euphemism for “sex during the day.” But it does have an easy listening feel to it that makes one think more of “Country Roads” than “Je T’Aime… Moi Non Plus.” I suspect that is why the song was such a big hit. It reached number 1 in the United States and was the 12th biggest song for the year.

Sky rockets in flight.
