Tony Orlando and Dawn - Candida
When I took Microbiology, the Professor was making fun of students who were were calling the organism Can'-dee'-duh, instead of the proper pronunciation, Can'-did-uh.

I would think twice before dating a girl named Candida. What part of Candida did you not understand?" Sounds like a Steely Dan lyric line. Sing to the same melody as "You've been telling me you're a genius since you were seventeen". Now write a new Steely Dan Song.

Candida. Sounds like a fun gal!

Dody-Four Seasons B Side of "Beggin'". "Dody'" has a little bit of an unusual style for the Four Seasons.

Elton John- Harmony
For years I wondered if harmony was referring to his interest in music,.or the name Harmony.

Later I saw lyric sheets where Harmony is always capitalized.

I Can't Quit Her/For Emily Whenever I May Find Her Medley-Arbors #67 Hot 100

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9RESRuh5Js

Even though this one has been mentioned before, this Arbors Medley is a true Classic of the era. Played a lot regionally in Michigan of course. WOKY would break these in order to try to get WLS and WCFL Chicago and WLAV and WGRD and WERX Grand Rapids on board. WPAG and WTAC were also very early adds in order to get Rosalie's attention at CKLW.
