AM radio was being taken over by pre-teens in this era, while their older and wiser brothers and sisters were listening to FM Progressive Rock. I could imagine that when David Cassidy sang the title line of this song, all the 12 year olds were screaming, “Me! I’ll want you!” It came in at #7 this week.
