Listen to REFLECTIONS by Peppermint Trolley Company.

Hello Thursday readers! Any of you remember the Brady Bunch? Fine, but how much Brady Bunch trivia do you know? Here's one for you. From Season Two until it got cancelled and began its syndicated zombie life, the Brady Bunch theme song was performed by all of the cast members. For the first season, however, it was performed by a group from outside San Bernadino called the Peppermint Trolley Company.

Check out the youtube. It's very bubble gum, just like the 'Company's big hit, Baby You Come Rollin' Across My Mind.

Today's song, Reflections, is moody (there's that word again) enough to be considered psychedelic. And don't take my word for it, take the word of Sir Psych, who included this song on his first "Sir Psych Presents" compilation. Most of you probably don't know who Sir Psych is. I don't either, except he's a blogger with an unbelievable collection of late 60s obscurities, and everything I've gotten from him has been worth hearing. I highly recommend checking out the blog.

Jason will be here tomorrow, with a couple of songs you may or may not have heard at your local Starbucks. I'll be back on Monday, unless I can get Liverpool to lose this weekend, in which case I'll post some Barbra Streisand for you.
