Focus: Hocus Pocus

Here’s another Dutch band from the 70s (see previous post) – Focus, performing their 1973 hit Hocus Pocus. I had forgotten all about this bit of loopy art rock-yodeling fusion until I saw it today on Tacky Raccoons.

Is it any wonder the crowd gives them a standing ovation? No, it is not.

  1. Apparently Focus was pretty big overseas, but came off as a one-hit oddity in the States. That video is kinda “Spinal Tap”-ish, too. (Thanx for the link.)

  2. great band, great yodeling song.

  3. Did I not listen to KJRB that day in 1973?
