Song of the Day: The Fifth Dimension, “One Less Bell To Answer”

I know, I just featured The Fifth Dimension a couple of weeks ago, but today is Marilyn McCoo’s 79th birthday. She’s been married to Billy Davis, another former member of the group, since 1969. “One Less Bell To Answer” was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, who originally wrote it for Keely Smith in 1967. It was released in 1970 and went to #2 on the Hot 100, kept out of the top spot by George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord.” It went to #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart, #4 on the Soul Singles chart, #2 on the Cash Box Top 100, and #11 in Canada.
