Fun In The Sun With The Siblings Of Song
With all the hoopla over Marie Osmond's comments about Miley Cyrus in the news these days (isn't there any thing really important that CNN should be reporting to us?!?!?), it seemed only fitting to present to you the soundtrack to Donny and Marie's one and only film tegether. Goin' Coconuts. This film is chock full of 70s schlock! It was released in 1978 and bombed hideously. While I can't seem to remember the entire plot, I know it involves some kind of zany spy spoof, Marie getting kidnapped, a necklace, five bad guys, Hawaii and plenty of singing. As a kid, I really wanted to see this film but never did (there's a reason for everything!). Instead I had to settle for the paperback novelization that I bought for some 50 cents or so from the Troll Book Club at school (remember those little newspapers?). As a matter of fact, I think I still have the book somewhere. Anyone interested in it? Let me know and I'll send it your way. However, when it comes to the soundtrack, I'm not parting with it. But I will share it with you here at the World of Wonder. In fact, here it is for you now. Enjoy!
