Interesting facts about I Think I Love You & The Partridge Family –
The Partridge Family was a TV show that ran from 1970-1974. It was about a musical family, and it starred David Cassidy and his real-life stepmother Shirley Jones along with future L.A. Law actress Susan Dey and a young Danny Bonaduce. The show was marketed around Cassidy, who is the son of the actor Jack Cassidy.
Jones and Cassidy were the only members of The Partridge Family to perform on their recordings, as Cassidy sang lead and Jones, a veteran of movie musicals Oklahoma and The Music Man, sang backup.
This was written by Tony Romeo, who also wrote songs for The Seekers, The Everly Brothers and Richard Harris. It’s a very unusual song with a vocal intro (ba, ba ba ba…) that made it challenging for disk jockeys to talk over the song.
The group Voice of the Beehive took this song to #25 UK in 1991. Other artists to cover it include Less Than Jake, Paul Westerberg and Declan Galbraith. The Hip-Hop duo Nice And Smooth sampled it for their song “Hip Hop Junkies.”
