Over at the Spree blog our fearless editor-in-chief has alerted the world to the release of a side called "Love Songs of the 70's" by no-one else than Donny Osmond. Cast your eyes down this set list, if you dare:

1. I Can See Clearly Now - Johnny Nash
2. Sometimes When We Touch - Dan Hill
3. Let’s Stay Together - Al Green
4. Laughter In The Rain - Neil Sedeka
5. When I Need You - Leo Sayer
6. How Long - Ace
7. Mandy - Barry Manilow
8. You Are So Beautiful - Joe Cocker
9. Will It Go Round In Circles - Billy Preston
10. How Deep Is Your Love - Bee Gees
11. Alone Again Naturally - Gilbert O’Sullivan
12. If – Bread

In the comments there, I remarked that this is a pretty comprehensive list of horrible-- although I take it back about the Al Green number, and the Johnny Nash as well. Those, and I suppose the Billy Preston, are merely desecrations-- Donny Osmond doing his Pat Boone number on material originally recorded by people he no doubt regards as Sons of Ham. Eliz. helpfully adds a few numbers to the roster, but this is too big a subject for just one site, so I am opening it up here, too. What are the songs that Donny should start recording for Volume Two?
