Focus Hocus Pocus

Focus is the most famous rock band ever to come out of Holland. “Hocus Pocus” is their most famous song. They’ve had lots of line up changes over the years but Focus is still performing today. Here they are in 1973 from The Midnight Special.

I think this clip was posted on the Bizarre You Tube videos thread or somewhere else as a funny video but I gotta tell you this song works for me! I think it’s awesome! Still I believe Steven Sondheim missed the mark when he declared that “Hocus Pocus” had the finest lyrics of any song written in the 20th century. I don’t think any lyrics discussion is complete unless serious consideration is given to this number.
