The soundtrack of my childhood was filled with the gorgeous harmonies of John Phillips and sung by John, Denny, Michelle and Cass - THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS. I can sing every song, although I definitely have favorites. I've always been a fan of Cass's parts over Michelles when performing for my steering wheel. I am, not to put to fine a point on it, a pretty big fan. And my dad is even more so.
So I was sad to learn yesterday that Denny had died. I misread the story at first and thought it said he was 86 which freaked me out for a few minutes.
So now Michelle is the only one left, but she was the youngest by quite a bit even back in the day, so it makes sense.
I thought I would share a cool website with you that dissects my favorite Mama's and Papa's song, Creeque Alley. There is so much reference material in that one song, Dennis Miller's head would explode.
