Thanksgiving is by far the nation's most boring holiday. Even the main event - gorging on food is compromised by the selection. Turkey' tastes like plywood and the second and third place finishers, potatoes and stuffing, are only edible if covered in gravy fat.
Even the idea of the holiday is bogus. Celebrating a pre-genocide meal between native Americans and the machinery of conquest? This is as pretentious as Susan Stamburg's tired cranberry recipe joke.
Oh, you scoffers! Don't pin me down as a subjective whiner. This is coming from an objective music library researcher. There are simply very few Thanksgiving songs that would work on a Saturday at midnight radio show. No Screaming Jay Hawkins. No monster / UFO invasion songs. There may be billions and billions of profound Christmas songs but who's been inspired by Thanksgiving?
Tonight we provide the musical proof. We'll play any song about Thanksgiving you can find besides Alice's Restaurant. Until then, over fifty songs about topics related to Thanksgiving,
The big leg syndrome of over-eating,
Too many songs about potatoes,
Even beer advertisement songs
Since we tend to do everything sideways, we'll start with a set of music about slow time that matches the feeling that settles in after the feast but before the Detroit Lions boredom festival completely numbs the brain into unconsciousness.
Oh yeah. Those brutes at NASA reported on their Saturday Night Special gunshot at the moon. Bastards made her cry buckets of tears. We'll do a set for the moon too.
