“Joy to the World” was a number one hit for Three Dog Night for six weeks in 1971. Axton penned the song for an animated TV special called “The Happy Song” that never materialized, then pitched the song to the group while on tour with them.
“LOOKatOKC’s Got It Covered” is a new video series featuring 12 local musicians covering classic songs by Oklahoma artists. The series will last for 12 weeks and will shoot at 7pm each Thursday at Saints, which sponsors the series. Audiences are encouraged to show up 30 minutes before taping to enjoy each performance.
Kudos to host George Lang and videographer Kyle Roberts.
