Her Name is Jan

Description
Poor Jan. Personally I thought she had surpassed Marcia in hotness by the final season. But being the middle child, naturally nobody noticed.

With apologies to The Silver Platters, The Brady Six, The Banana Convention, and Sam the Butcher (who along with Fluffy didn’t make it into the song), I give you track three from my album "Internet Rock Star."

Lyrics
Her Name is Jan
Words and Music by Demetrius P. Hill ©2010 all rights reserved, February 6, 2010 additional lyrics on February 26 and 27, 2011

Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!
Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!

Now listen to this story ‘bout a family they call Brady
They live inside my TV set.
Three sisters and three brothers – a Father and Mother
They got Alice and a Tiger for a pet.

But one is an invisible girl -- cause she’s livin’ in a Brady world!

Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!
Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!

Now Greg he digs the honeys, and Peter’s kinda funny
And Bobby found a wallet full of cash.
There’s Marcia she is pretty, and Cindy’s cute and silly
And Oliver was last to join the cast.

They’re serving pork chops and apple sauce -- to the middle child who was so lost!

Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!
Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!

You gotta keep on, keep on, keep on dancin’
Dancin’ all through the night!
You gotta keep on, keep on, keep on doin’ it
Keep on doin’ it right!

(rockin’ Johnny Bravo solo)

Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!
Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!
Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!
Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan! Her name is Jan, Jan, Jan!

That is so funny ... just that Brady song just takes me back. Nice track. Great playing and catchy fun melody. Very cool bass playing and I like that tamborine that comes in. Rockin' lead ... this is well produced and mixed. I enjoyed it!!

Celebrate the "Lost Girls"
Hooray, a song that puts a spotlight on the middle sister who works so hard, puts up with crap from all the siblings with a smile, and is never noticed. Great catchy song, and brings me back to a childhood long ago, watching those episodes. Funny, I married a "Lost Girl", so this hits home in a weird way :-)

ttfn,
Drakonis

Another Fan of the "Lost Girls"
A perfect tribute to one of my favorite childhood shows. You rocked the best episodes and the sampled bits are well chosen.

Like Drak, I married the middle girl so I dig this in very special way.

Great stuff.

We never got into the Brady Bunch over here, so can't really comment about Jan, but this is a really great song. Enjoyed.
Cheers

Fun song, got a big smile from this. I grew up on the Bradys. I like the use of the clips, and the bouncy verse groove emulates the theme song albeit with a rock edge to it.

Is Mary-Anne next in line?
Clever, witty, perceptive pop song, Slashh! Nice hook and good harmonies. A fitting tongue-in-cheek tribute to Sherwood Schwartz, who died quite recently. I must look up what Jan looks like now on the net. She is probably about the same age as me :-) I hope Gilligan's Island is next... Regards, Peter

Echoes of the 60s
Really nicely put together. I never actually saw the Brady Bunch so I guess I'll just have to accept your take on it :)

Sounds really good. Everything in its place and everything clear.

Cheers

Good 70s vibe
That bouncy bass/drum/guitar rhythm feels 70s, although I guess in a way the music from that era will always stay with us, and there will be plenty of 90s songs that have that feel. Maybe even in the 00s?

In a way it's hard to judge what in this song is honest, what is cheese, and what is honest cheese. No matter, I liked it.

An instant and appealing song
Really enjoyed this happy and well written song. This is what pop music should sound like. I feel we have moved too far away from this type of sound over the last twenty or so years. Nice work.
