I’ve tried to get over it, but this strange attraction to Michael Landon has only grown stronger.
Previously I blamed it on insomnia, the Hallmark Channel’s relentless Little House on the Prairie marathons (next one is this Saturday, starting at 10am), and contaminated water, but I’m putting the crutches down. It’s not the Hallmark Channel, nor the insomnia. The contaminated water might be an issue, but I just think Michael Landon is hot, that’s all.
Anyway, far from seeking help, I’ve decided to just give in to the Landon love-fest, and that decision is what led me to a momentous discovery on YouTube. Are you ready for this? Michael Landon cut an album! For real: in 1960, Michael Landon recorded his own doo-wop album.
His singing voice is kind of Elvisish… so much so that you wonder if it’s really him, but then at the end, the music stops and he says something in his regular speaking voice. And at that moment, you know you’ve just been serenaded by Pa Ingalls.
Look, doo-wop is not really my kind of thing… except when Michael Landon is singing! Check it out —- you know you’re dying to!
