Tony Orlando "Lets Salute America"
In 1974, Tony Orlando and Dawn were the darlings of nighttime TV variety shows, popping out Candida, Knock Three Times, and their signature #1 hit, Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree. They were funny, sexy, and groovy 70s all the way. Orlando is now bringing back that chart-topper for an oddly-themed new show that salutes Americaadding in some yankee doodling, Neil Diamond and Ray Charlesand calling it a show that stands up for our country. Curious, of course, because Ribbon is based on an old folk tale about a convict who asks his gal to tie one on if she wants him after hes released from prison. Now theres a theme!
