BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1978
Pure pop-disco heaven! from D & M a.k.a. Donny and Marie Osmond. The song is notable in their career for being the final tune by ANY of the Osmonds in the ’70s to make the Billboard Pop Charts (# 38 in 1978). Donny went on to make a notable pop chart comeback in 1989-90, with sis Marie enjoying a country chart comeback of her own in the mid-80s. “On The Shelf” is from the 1978 film “Goin’ Coconuts”.
Though the film flopped, and essentially killed off any film career hopes for Donny & Marie, who were (at the time) enjoying a wildly successful run on television with their 1976-79 variety show. At the same time Marie was offered the lead role of Sandy in the 1978 blockbuster film “Grease” but she turned it down dut to the tart yourself up, to win the guy role in the films finale. “No” to Grease, but “Yes” to Goin’ Coconuts.
