Song of the Day - Time to Change - The Brady Bunch

Today's Song of the Day is in tribute to Ann B. Davis, who sadly passed away yesterday after a tragic fall in the bathtub put her into a coma from which she couldn't recover.  She was 88 years old.  For any of us who lived during the Brady Bunch years of the early 70's and beyond, Ann's character Alice, the Brady's self-deprecating housekeeper, was one of those faces we all knew, making daily visits to our living rooms for so many years taking care of the kids, dating Sam the Butcher and providing plenty of comic relief for our pleasure.

Towards the latter portion of the Bradys five-year run, the six kids, Greg, Marcia, Peter, Jan, Bobby and Cindy put on musical performances of songs that oldest brother Greg had written.  From what I remember, there were three songs that they did (the other two were Sunshine Day, Keep On Movin') and I loved them all, including Time to Change.  In the episode where this appeared, Peter's voice was changing (ah, adolescence!), and they used the cracks in his falsetto as a part of the tune. I thought it was fun then and it still is now.  Do you remember this????
