This is old

cocker

This came up in conversation today. Now that I’ve looked it up, I might as well share.

I can’t find a reference, but per my memory: the story goes that a guy made this and sent it to his girlfriend for her birthday (you’ll see a dedication to April). And then it went viral, back in the happy olden times before “go viral” was a thing people said.

If you’ve not seen it before, enjoy.

sock it to me

Insensitive, I know, since we’re obviously watching someone writhing with a cruel form of cerebral palsy, but I laughed til I cried. Thanks!

I grew up playing the Woodstock album on a loop. This thing is in my DNA.

Have you seen John Belushi‘s version?

Belusi and Cocker sang Dave Mason’s “Feeling Alright” together. It didn’t look like Cocker realized he was being parodied.

Damn You! I love Joe Cocker, and I love this song and I love this performance of this song. Now I can never listen to it again without giggling hysterically.

Therefore in a sort of Sicilian-revenge-thing, I hereby curse you with:

“Bored of the Rings”

Spoil my Joe Cocker, and I spoil yer Tolkien – it’s the Hippy way.

Too late, Some Veg! I read Bored of the Rings not long after it came out, and hated myself for loving it.

Ever see the SNL episode with Cocker as the musical guest, where Belushi went out dressed as Cocker, hair flying, and twitched right along with him?

I doesn’t know how to embed a link, and I’m too lazy to figger it out, but check out “Gopher Tuna” on youtube.

Salsa cookies!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
