Rod McKuen, adopted for a time as poet laureate of the boomer generation, is 77 today.
McKuen is a co-conspirator in inflicting one of the worst pop songs of our generation on our eustachian tubes. But as it turns out, “Seasons in the Sun” has a more complex history than what came out of Terry Jacks’ mouth in 1974.
This is a really weird video of Jacks lip syncing a duet with his younger self.
Stay tuned for Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods singing “Billy Don’t Be A Hero.”
