Purple shower bells and tea

The premise of the song is that a couple is exchanging love letters in musical form. The singer is creating "Strawberry Letter 23" as a reply to the song he has received from his lover, and he refers to her previous message as "Strawberry Letter 22" when replying.

For Music Monday, the Brothers Johnson with Strawberry Question 23 (1977). A bit of trivia: The 12" single was pressed on red strawberry-scented vinyl. The 7" single was originally released in a strawberry-scented sleeve.

More of the Brothers Johnson: Stomp

Really nice song...I think I remember hearing it back in the day.

And I would love to have that strawberry-scented vinyl record!
