Video Valentine: "So Much In Love" (late 70's)

"So Much In Love" was originally recorded by the Tymes in the 60's, and to my knowledge has only charted twice more. The Eagles' Timothy B. Schmidt recorded a solo version for the 1982 movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", and All 4 One recorded an a capella version about 10 years later. Before either one of those versions, however, comes this offering, courtesy of Sha Na Na, from an episode sometime in the late 70's, I think. Johnny Contardo is serenading Ginger (Pamela Myers, who was also the show's announcer), while the rest of the boys kibitz to get the laughs. Too bad no one saw fit to try to release this cover as a single.....! Uploaded by Faerydancer to YouTube:
