    Thanks Raw for posting that. Hocus Pocus was a favorite song of my sons. He passed away 5 years ago and I remember him and his friends pestering the local radio station with call after call until they played it. It's kinda ironic as I heard it played on the radio today also- 1st time in a long time.

    Never heard of it. But, there are a lot of songs from the seventies I don't know. I was on a carrier in the Gulf of Tonkin off the coast of North Vietnam during 72 and 73. Long time ago.

    After re-watching that great video clip again, two things.....

    1) Was the host a young (and very hip looking) Gladys Knight?

    2) Was the lead singer ever afflicted with Tourette Syndromme? Watch the "tics" in the beginning.

    I too thought it was Oprah 'till the date showed. It sure does look like a younger Gladys Knight.

    Don't want to be a Canadian idiot

    Dont want to be some beer swillin' hockey nut
    and do I look like some frost bitten hosehead
    I never learned my alphabet from A
    to Zed

    They all live on donuts and moose meat
    and they leave the house without packin' heat
    never even bring their guns to the mall
    and you know what else is too funny
    their stupid monopoly money
    can't take 'em seriously at all

    Well maple syrup and snow's what they export
    they treat curling just like it's a real sport
    they think their silly accent is so cute
    can't understand a thing they're talking aboot

    sure they got their national health care
    cheaper meds low crime rates and clean air
    then again well they got celine dion
    eat their weight in kraft macaroni
    and dream of driving a zamboni
    all over saskatchewan

    Don't want to be a Canadian idiot
    Won't figure out the temperature in Celcius
    see the map they're hovering right over us
    tell you the truth it makes me kinda nervous

    always hear the same kind of story
    break your nose and they'll just say sorry
    tell me what kind of freaks are that polite
    It's gotta mean they're all up to something
    so quick before they see it coming
    time for a pre-emptive strike
