I love Gary Larson and find him one of the funniest comics ever. This weekend is our Canadian Thanksgiving...the time we say thank you to the Native Americans for letting us steal their land, destroy the Buffalo almost to extinction, being the first to scalp the Indian, place them on reservations and deride them as human beings. Well, enough about thanking them, and on with some music that made me think about thanks. So here are my 3 picks...
1. I'VE GOT PLENTY TO BE THANKFUL FOR SUNG BY BING CROSBY-1942
This song was written by Irving Berlin for the classic movie, "Holiday Inn". This is the Thanksgiving part( duh) and it's just a nice song that makes us think what we truly should be thankful for. Funny, this part starts off with the cartoon turkey on the November calendar, running from one Thursday down to the following Thursday and back again before giving up and shrugging its shoulders. I guess FDR wanted to change the Thursday Thanksgiving was celebrated on and it became a heated debate.
2. THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC SUNG BY ABBA-1977
Well, of course I thought of ABBA and this is a great song that I loved listening to and I also have it in Spanish from their Spanish album, "Gracias Por La Musica".
3. THANK YOU SUNG BY DIDO- 1998
I actually like Dido and this song is so good. I first heard it in the movie "Love, Actually" and then I went on a search. I didn't know she was singing about depression but that didn't matter because it sounds ethereal to me.
What thank you song can you think of?
