It was on the second side, last cut on their Naturally album. Three Dog Night got their band name from an old Australian Aborigine saying they heard. He said the first line, Jeremiah was a bullfrong, was never really intended to be in the song.

Three dog night is actually an Australian term. Born in Los Angeles and raised in Beverly Hills, Jimmy attended the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music and played in several groups on Sunset Strip before hooking up with Danny Hutton and helping to form the 7-member group. The band buried the song in the middle of the second side and only released it after its management urged them to do so, according to Greenspoon's book. It was also played at the end of at Pro Player now in and in. The song is featured prominently in the film.

And then they put out this stupid little song, Joy to the World. Why couldn't it just be about a bullfrog named Jeremiah? Axton, who was a popular country singer-songwriter from Oklahoma, pitched it to the group while he opened for them on a tour. If it was cold at night, you slept with your dogs for warmth.

My next question is, has the original ever been released on a compilation release since the 70's? Axton wanted to persuade his record producers to record a new melody he had written and the producers asked him to sing any words to the tune. However, after reading the Book of Jeremiah, I now realize it's a rebellious taunt toward God. He was given a star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars in 2000.

The station got a gold record for it and Three Dog Night came to Seattle to launch their next album. This is what the band took their name from. But I never did have the music to this song all these years. The frog is also featured on the cover of his album 1983 and has become an official music mascot for Johnston.

And there were also some whimpy bands.
