In Search of Donny Osmond

I.  Am.  A.  Complete.  Dork.

There, I've said it.  Yes, the title is accurate.  I am indeed in search of Donny Osmond.  Well, technically I am in search of Donald Clark Osmond.  And before you ask, yes, there is a difference.

I grew up a Donny and Marie fan.  I had the albums, I watched the shows.  As I got older and it became "uncool" to be a fan, I got rid of them all and moved on to my 80's metal, big-hair bands era of which I still live in.  A little sad but true.  So anyway, always in the back of my mind is an album of Donny's where he sort of made the break from the past and was trying something new, something a little less "poppy" and it was titled "Donald Clark Osmond".  There is a very serious looking picture of him on the cover and everything.

So why am I searching for this now?  Because there were TWO songs on that album that I loved and for some reason they came to my mind and now I cannot get them out of it!  I went on Amazon to see if I could BUY the MP3 download of it but guess what?  Donald Clark Osmond is not COOL enough, apparently to HAVE an MP3 download!  I can buy the VINYL album but that does me no good because while yes, I have record player, I'm honestly telling you that I am going to want to sing to these songs while driving my car and nothing looks more pathetic than a grown woman hauling a record player around in her car while singing along to Donny Osmond.

I'm just saying...

So take pity on me, readers!  If any of you have access to this album and would be willing to make a recording of it for me I would be ever-so grateful!!  Maybe soon I will be able to go to sleep without Donny's melodious voice joining me!

Which songs are you looking for Stace? I have several Donny CD's and some off them span his life... not just a period. Maybe they are on there.

One of the songs from that album is on YouTube

Don't know if it is one of the ones you're looking for...It can be SO frustrating when you are trying to find something you liked back then, I know :)

I have a turntable, Stacey, but alas, no Donald Clark Osmond album. :( I do, however, have every Patridge Family album....HANDY.. should you request any songs from them. Sigh. David Cassidy trumps Donald Clark Osmond any day!

I don't listen to Donny, but I loved hearing about your love of that album. You're hilarious!

How has everything been?

Sorry to say I do not have access to the albums.

I will confess to owning the DVD of "Joseph and the Amazing technicolor dream coat". I've never even thought about this being a dorky fact about me until I was with a group of people ranging from 20-something to 60-something and we all went out to lunch together. It wasn't until something came up about that play and I declared that I had that DVD and adored it - and they all looked at me like I was nuts - that I realized that others may consider me dorky.
