70s Saturday: "Hello Hooray"

Detroit native Alice Cooper may be the perfect artist to feature on Halloween weekend, but I decided to stay away from the typical spooky song selection(s) from him and go with my favorite instead. "Hello Hooray" comes from 1973's monster (forgive the pun) hit "Billion Dollar Babies", and was originally a Judy Collins song, believe it or not.

A song about strength that comes from finally getting the freedom to be yourself. As far as I can tell, this originally aired on German TV, and all the YouTube copies cut-off in the middle. I found this version on some Russian site.

It has a macabre ending, so it fits with the season. Boo! Be afraid. You've been warned.
