Song Of The Day - "Pretty Smart On My Part" by Phil Ochs

"Rehearsals For Retirement" was the first record Phil Ochs released after the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. Ochs was a Yippie (Youth International Party) member and was instrumental in the organization of the protest and the party. This song, and indeed the whole album, reflects the sense of alienation Phil Ochs took home with him from Chicago.
