Musician and songwriter Paul Williams composed "An Old Fashioned Love Song," made famous in 1971 by the Three Dog Night, with lead vocals by Chuck Negron. Taken as the lead single from their 1971 album "Harmony," the song peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in December 1971, becoming the band's seventh Top 10 hit. It was also Three Dog Night's first record to top the U.S. adult contemporary chart.Williams is responsible for a number of enduring pop hits from the 1970s, including a number of hits for Three Dog Night (including An Old Fashioned Love Song, "The Family of Man", and "Out in the Country"), Helen Reddy ("You and Me Against the World"), and The Carpenters, most notably "Rainy Days and Mondays," "I Won't Last a Day Without You," and "We've Only Just Begun."----------------------------------------------------------------Just an old-fashioned love song playin' on the radioAnd wrapped around the music is the soundOf someone promising they'll never goYou swear you've heard it beforeAs it slowly rambles on and onNo need in bringin' `em back,`Cause they're never really goneJust an old-fashioned love songOne I'm sure they wrote for you and meJust an old-fashioned love songComin' down in 3-part harmonyTo weave our dreams upon and listen to each eveningWhen the lights are lowTo underscore our love affairWith tenderness and feeling that we've come to knowYou swear you've heard it beforeAs it slowly rambles on and on andNo need in bringin' `em back,`Cause they're never really goneJust an old-fashioned love songComin' down in 3-part harmonyJust an old-fashioned love songOne I'm sure they wrote for you and meJust an old-fashioned love songComin' down in 3-part harmonyJust an old-fashioned love songOne I'm sure they wrote for you and meTo weave our dreams upon and listening to a song . . .----------------------------------------------------------------TDN почти не писали собственных песен, но приобрели репутацию мастеров кавер-версий. В частности, хитами в их исполнении стали песни Нилссона («One»), Рэнди Ньюмана («Mama Told Me Not to Come»), Лоры Ниро («Elis Coming»), Пола Уильямса («An Old Fashioned Love Song», «Out in the Country»), Расса Балларда из Argent («Liar»), Хойта Экстона («Joy to the World» и «Never Been To Spain»), Элтона Джона и Берни Топина («Lady Samantha» и «Your Song»), Джона Хайатта («Sure As Im Sittin' Here»), Лио Сэйера («The Show Must Go On»). Элтон Джон говорил позже, что началу собственного взлета к поп-звездности обязан исключительно каверу TDN на «Your Song».----------------------------------------------------------------Three Dog Night é uma banda estado-unidense de rock and roll bastante ativa na década de 1970, formada por Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron e Cory Wells nos vocais, Jim Greenspoon (teclado), Joe Schermie (baixo), Floyd Sneed (bateria). Surgiram no final da era do psicodelismo e faziam um rock pesado com raízes no R&B; ocuparam-se basicamente em recriar antigos sucessos, mas também lançando compositores novos, como aconteceu com a dupla Elton John e Bernie Taupin, autores da faixa "Lady Samantha", do segundo LP da banda. Todos álbuns do grupo ganharam discos de ouro e a formação permaneceu inalterada até 1973, quando Joe Schermie saiu e foi substituído por Jack Ryland. Skip Konte entrou então, como segundo tecladista, mas, pouco tempo depois, a banda acabou.----------------------------------------------------------------Three Dog Night war eine US-amerikanische Rockband und von 1968 bis 1975 aktiv. Die Gruppe hatte sieben Mitglieder, darunter drei Sänger und zwei Keyboarder. Die Band wurde von Brian Wilson von den Beach Boys gefördert. Die Gruppe hieß ursprünglich Redwood, benannte sich aber um, weil sie in einem Artikel gelesen hatte, dass australische Aborigines in kalten Nächten mit ihren Hunden zusammen schliefen; in besonders kalten Nächten brauchten sie drei Hunde, um sich warm zu halten. Three Dog Night hatte nicht weniger als 40 goldene Schallplatten und 21 Top-40-Hits.
