Phil Ochs photographed an hour after his death by a camera in Heaven.
Phil Ochs (born December 19, 1940, died April 9, 1976) was the major American social movement singer-songwriter of the 1960s and the initiating irritating organizer of the more satirically absurd street demonstrations of the era. And he did it all while six sheets to the wind.
Ochs, of course, long after his semi-tragic alcohol-fueled death-by-hanging in 1976, became a musical icon in the 21st century. But during his short aggravated lifetime, Phil Ochs was the essential quintessential unknown American folk artist/social activist. And, historians agree, in the end he was not a very good brother.
Phil Ochs was unknown in the 20th century for such songs as "The War is Surely Almost Over", "I'm Considering Not Marching Anymore", and "Pleasures of Your Momma", heard by hundreds during his lifetime. (more...)
Where are you?? You vixen!!!
Not to be confused with Piña Coladaburg, this song is sung to the tune of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville.
Eatin' some rum cake
Beatin' my tubesteak
Just bought a vat of coconut oil
I know that it's dirty
But I'm over thirty
And I ain't got no woman to soil
Layin' around in Piña Coladatown
Searchin' for my pineapple juice (more...)
