27 November 2023 - Three Dog Night - Shambala

And so this is the main blog post today.  That's right.  Totally Covered rises again, with a song that was originally meant to be our Wicked Guilty Pleasure. 

The song was originally written and performed by Daniel Moore, and previously - like a WEEK previously - covered by country-rock artist B.J. Stevenson.  It was this version, however, that went to the upper stratosphere.  

Ten albums into their catalog, this would end up being one of the band's biggest hits, by far.  From the Cyan album, the song, although rooted in Eastern religion, really fits in with the Christian/gospel feel of the album as a whole.  

You are also going to have this song stuck in your head all day.
