Happy birthday, Margot Chapman!

You may not know the name Margot Chapman, but when you click this link, surely you’ll recognize her soothing voice as it helps deliver the world’s pre-eminent ode to mid-day lovin’. For the record, Margot’s greatest hit as part of Starland Vocal Band should not be attempted by uncle-niece combos. As a great philosopher once said, "it’s more adult themed than its innocent melody would have you believe." Rubbin’ sticks and stones together indeed!

All together now: "Skyyyyyyyrockets in flight!" [Wrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.] "Afternoon delight!"

    Michael, thanks for that fantastic Arrested Development moment. I hope to never sing that song with anyone related to me…

    Happy Birthday to the woman who gave Carrie Bradshaw the same lines she uttered when discussing Samantha’s new love Richard on season 4. “Birds in flight, afternoon delight”! too cool!

    Ooh, do I hate that song. I hate it with the hate of a thousand suns. And now you’ve gone and gotten it stuck in my head. Damn you, Slezak! You are so not invited to my birthday party.

    WOW, I think I just may be the only person in the entire world that actually likes this song! I always crank it when it comes on the radio (yes, they do still play it). And that Arrested Development episode is one of my favorites…have worn the DVD out!
    “Thinking of you’s working up my appetite…” Priceless!

    I love the Song “Afternoon Delight”! I was 13 when it came out, and I was just starting to think about girls! When I heard the part Taffy and Margot sing, I remember getting so turned on!!! Then when I saw them on TV, I was in love with both of them! Major puppy love!

    margot from the starland vocal band (summer 1976) “afternoon delight” is one of the 10 most beautifull ladies in the world and her singing is oh forget about it…unbeleivably unbeleivable.

      Yea, I could’nt agree with you more.Starland Vocal Band brings me back to july 1976 maybe the best summer (really the mid 70’s was unreal ie; fantastic )
