"4+20" by Loose Bruce Kerr is an AUDIO MP3 parody of Stephen Stills' song, "4+20" from 1969. It's about April 20th each year at 4:20pm when pot lovers everywhere celebrate, well, pot! Together. Or alone. Whatever. Who's counting (...except on the calendar & clock).
Instead of Stills' dark picture of despair, the parody flips it to celebrating 4/20. At 4:20pm. You get the picture. Or had it decades ago.
Whether I still smoke pot or not is private, this song’s title begged for a parody of it. However, I will say I first tried pot the same year Bill Clinton did. But I definitely inhaled. Earbuds encouraged.
Song parodist “Loose Bruce” Kerr (nationally: Dr. Demento Show; Jim Bohannon Show) sings and plays all the instruments one at a time in his multitrack studio in Roseville, CA. Kerr is from Waukesha, Wisconsin, the home of multitrack inventor, Les Paul, who inspired Bruce who saw him perform in their hometown in 1960.
Bruce’s songs are an irregular feature of the Dr. Demento Show and Jim Bohannon show on syndicated radio & internet. Bruce opened for “Weird Al” Yankovic back in the day. His breakout song was in 1987: “Walk Like a Deukmejian,” about California’s then-governor and Supreme Court Chief Justice, Rose Bird.
