A change of pace...

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.

Any computer whizzes out there, every time I trying to go to a utube clip it starts playing and then the video vanishes and all I get is the audio.HELP.

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.


Life is a Highway...
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.


Hey raw cool old song there...theres a new song out that I couldnt find a video for but I did find the lyrics.It kinda sounds like you wrote it.
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
