Afternoon Delight

May 27, 2024

This month I’m focusing on One Hit Wonders of the 70s.

Today our song is:  Afternoon Delight

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

"Afternoon Delight" is a song recorded by Starland Vocal Band. It was written by band member Bill Danoff. In the US, it became a #1 single on July 10, 1976, and earned a gold record. 

The title came from the happy hour menu at Clyde's restaurant in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., where Bill Danoff was eating with fellow bandmember Margot Chapman, while his then-wife Taffy Danoff was undergoing surgery for cervical cancer. Danoff downplayed the lyrics: "I didn't want to write an all-out sex song ... I just wanted to write something that was fun and hinted at sex."



  1. They were quite the thing when this song came out, with a summer replacement series and everything. A year later, both couples had broken up and we heard nothing more from them...

  2. This is a great song, sexy but tasteful and fun
