Thanksgiving | Song of the Holiday | "Chicago"
Artist: Big D and the Kids Table
Album: How it Goes (2004)
Hey, Happy Thanksgiving! It’s one of my favorite holidays, actually - the food is delicious, I love my family, and I always root for Detroit. (This is their year, dang it!)
It’s by accident that this blog really launches on Turkey Day, but hey, I’m not complaining. But in honor of that, I’ll do another song of the day - a Song of the Holiday, if you will.
One of Thanksgiving’s most cardinal components is that of the “kids table,” where all of the children sit and eat until the year they’re deemed tolerable enough to dine with the adults. So let’s celebrate that immortal concept with a song by a band with one of my favorite names, Big D and the Kids Table.
"Chicago", our Song of the Holiday, is also the city where I live. I, personally, am very thankful to be going to college there. I’ve always wanted to, and city life fits me like a glove. My college experience has been wonderful so far and I’m extremely grateful for all the opportunities and friends I’ve found and made there.
So, Happy Skanksgiving, and remember, don’t give your dogs and dark meat or gravy!
And now I know what they meant when they always said:
“We’re not noticed, but we have so much more to give.”
