I used to have the Doobie's greatest hits. Did you that a doobie is one who smokes pot?

If you missed the away game you could tell if we won or lost by the sound of the bus pulling back into the school lot. Winning nights we'd be singin this song. Most of the team... Loud maybe even close to on key. Pissed off coach Stitzel until we made regional. I think even he sang a few verses that night

In the words of the great Roger Thomas - 'which doobie you'b...'. Best of the best

When my 45 year old son was young he sang this song and when it came to funky dixieland he substituted f**kin. Wonder where he heard that. He also got a kick out of Signs by the Five Man Electrical Band. :-)

As for me, Another Park Another Sunday will always be the "A" side and Black Water will always be the "B" side but the dude that decided to play and promote Black Water was a genius -- like capturing lightning in a bottle.

The Doobies...ke e p on shinin' on me! Everything will be alright!

An unintended # 1 for the Doobies. They didn't think much of the song so it was relegated to the B side of Another Park, Another Sunday. A DJ in the midwest flipped the single. Black Water caught on and ... well ...

FM Album Oriented Rock stations in the 80's and 90's played Black Water - More Than a Feeling - Fly Like an Eagle every 15 minutes. Apparently it was a law that they could not evade.
