Did I just hear "Sunshine" in a commercial?

But you can see why he'd tell THAT tall tale.

Oh I know. I was just being silly.

Of course obody can say that they KNOW that DC sang that song if DC said he didn't. I will say that it is my opinion that DC doesn't remember recording it for the PF, has not personally heard the commercial, and is surrounded by people who are as unfamiliar with the non-hit PF songs as he seems to be. Wink Cuz...that is an exact copy of the original lead vocal. I don't think anyone could immitate him that well, and there's no earthly reason to go to the trouble or significant legal risk to do it.

I read through this thread. Here is the note from 7 Up on the subject, as posted by Joey more than a year ago. 7 Up =thinks it's DC. And behind that I've posted a USA Today article on the ad campaign that also says it's the Partridge Family.

I haven't even gone to the You Tube links yet, but I think it's David. He's been performing for a long time. I can easilly imagine he has forgotten a song he sang about 37 years ago.

Not too long ago, in my quest to clean stuff out, I came across a video of a Christmas concert by my church choir when I was involved in it. I popped the video in, it started, and I didn't recognize one thing. Finally, after some time, I see myself on camera, singing right along with some song I don't even know now. LOL! I was in a total of three Christmas concerts. That's not a lot to remember, and yet one I forgot. All that to say, I can easily see David hearing the song and saying he has no idea about it, but it's not him.

ETA: Ok, now I've seen both the videos. Totally him. Very Happy

I'm not saying that he's lying about it. Of course that would make no sense. I'm saying that he hasn't heard it, and since he didn't record anything recently (and perhaps doesn't remember the song), he assumes that it isn't him.
