Notes About This Song

Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan ("Mark & Howie") were both members of The Turtles, well known for their hit song Happy Together (1967).

Davy Jones, Bobby Sherman, and David Cassidy were all Teen Idols at the time. Jimmy Greenspoon was a hardly-notable member of the popular band Three Dog Night, who performed with them on Organ, so he's the brunt of this joke.
