The Moguls: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — May 25, 2022

THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE 1960s THAT NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD

462) The Moguls — “Ski Bum”

’66 B-side by the Moguls from Eugene, Oregon is a garage rock classic dishing out some great career advice — be a ski bum!

Popsike.com says:

[T]his outfit was originally known as The Centurians but changed their name to The Moguls in December 1964. Their manager was convinced that after “surf” music, “ski” music would be the next big thing. So he hired two go-go dancers in ski-bunny outfits and clad the group in ski pants, turtlenecks and ski boots. This single featuring “Round Randy” Bryson on keyboards and vocals, is the second of three issued by the group, all of which are rare. It reportedly was produced by a member of Don and the Goodtimes.

“Come on, yeah. I’m gonna leave you. You never see me go. I’m gonna pack my bags. I’m heading off to snow. I’m a ski bum baby. I only live for snow. I’ve got a little snow bunny. Maybe two or three. But it don’t matter honey, they’re all the same for me now. No matter where I go baby, I only go to ski. I got a little Volkswagen, wasn’t made to go. But it holds my skis baby, runs good on snow. Don’t you know I’m a ski bum, no matter where I go. I said I’m a ski bum, and that I’ll always be. No matter where I go, honey, I want to go to ski. Don’t you know I’m a ski bum, it’s all the same to me. Hey, hey, hey, hey . . . .”
