I love putting up these 'Forgotten Favorites.' There are so many songs that have gotten lost over the decades. Not sure why they got lost, but it's fun bringing them back.

'Hocus Pocus' by Focus is, without a doubt, one of the most frenetic songs ever recorded. It's like the sound of someone having a nervous breakdown set to music.

It's another one of those 'forgotten' hits that you just don't hear anymore, but back in April of 1973 it was a Top 10 Hit.

Here is Focus performing 'Hocus Pocus' on The Midnight Special.
