Mood Music: Rick Springfield, ‘Hooky Jo’

Rick Springfield belts out ‘Hooky Jo’ on Aussie TV circa 1972

Here’s an odd bit of Mood Music for your Saturday that you may not have heard before – Rick Springfield’s “Hooky Jo” from 1972. The single comes from Springfield’s debut L.P., Beginnings.

“Hooky Jo” is super poppy and you’ll likely be singing along by the end of the tune. The song is about war but it’s hard to say which conflict. The Civil War? Vietnam? One thing’s for certain – you’ll never hear another cow bell and whistling breakdown this fantabulous. Enjoy!
