Beatle-esque meets tin pan alley

Words and Music by Ronnie Hock

Those lazy Sunday mornings in bed with your significant other, when the newspaper no longer holds your interest...hummmm



Floating on the waterbed
Sunday paper, just lying around,
I like chillin’ with you.

You sit, quietly read,
I rub your feet, and tickle your toes,
I like hangin’ with you.

Ooooh, ooooh, oooh,
Baby, let’s go tubin’
You and me, baby,
On the river of love.

A little cottage, we hide away.
You deal the cards, I scramble some eggs,
I like cookin’ for you.

Throw a log on the fire,
We Indian wrestle, I show you some moves,
I like movin’ on you.

Ooooh, ooooh, oooh,
Baby let’s go tubin’
You and me, baby,
On the river of love.

Hugo's Hits
One of the most fun things about this place is that you never know what to expect - logged in this morning to find a generous comment from Ronnie and was excited to hear his fun tunes...welcome, Ronnie, hope you have fun at the site, and I for one would enjoy hearing more than two tunes!


Smile About It
honey pie-ish delights...


LAID BACK LIFE
spent my formative years (‘68–‘75) playing in Rock & Roll/Blues bands, part of the Ann Arbor, Michigan counter-culture music scene. Following that, my career took me to Europe, doing club tours in Scandinavia, residing in Oslo, Norway for a time, and residing, writing, and recording at a studio retreat in Southern Italy. On returning to the U.S., I moved to LA to shop my music and moonlighted as a lighting tech. I worked for Theater Vision, Inc. in North Hollywood doing location film, movie premiers, and trade shows.


Cabaret Noir.......
This is so wonderfully flapper band Cole Porter authentic 20s 60s psychedelic revivalist vibed..So well crafted and charming with all the right period instruments too..Utterly delightful track impossible not to enjoy..


eclectica
This took me SO away to a better place for a few minutes. Wonderful!!


IAC GEMS
Lets Go Tubin' by Ronnie Hock is a delightful piece of whimsical retro -pop..Normally i wouldn't elevate a song thats so obviously a pastiche to the status of one of my "IAC gems", (tho i'd still enjoy it on my stations) but there's something here that just strikes a chord with me and seemed so memorable and fresh even on a first listen.. I think its the quality of CHARM it has...Yeh,this is a genuinelly charming song with an unaffected sense of joy.Its ploughing a similar furrow that artists like Harry Nilsson did in the 60s - updating that 20s goodtime music with plenty of oompa tuba (neat pun with the title here) n wah-wah wailing trumpet.. Anyways the elusive quality of 'charm' in music is a rare quality to find in these days of brow-furrowed ultra-earnest singer-songwriters,bludgeoning rock n pelvic grind dancepop.. Its more cynical ,jaded times we live in now - and the mainstream taste refects that-but there's still a quality of innocence the human soul craves (often ironically as a RELIEF from the artless,noisy chit-chatter of the modern musical world ) - so there's always gonna be a need for a song like this for certain people (i.e me) thats got a genuinelly life -affirming loving vibe.. The nearest modern music gets to being "charming" these days is the kinda twee 'little girl lost' folk pop thats ironically used alot to sell cars in adverts on TV..There's something so obviously self -conscious about that particular vibe that puts me off tho -not to mention the fact the music's usually lazily crafted n musically cliche... This song on the other hand is beautifully made,totally natural,intuitive n timeless of melody - and shows a master craftsmans eye for arrangement n production detail..Like good music does,it strikes you as effortless- -tho you just know a huge amount of works gone in to get it to sound this way.. Lovely track
