Hope everyone out there is having a great Thanksgiving weekend (even those folks who aren’t in the US)!

Celebrate Me Home – Kenny Loggins

We Are Family – Sister Sledge

Holiday – Madonna

I was once a Knucklehead, and still talk with a few of the guys regularly. See if you can guess the lyrics to this ditty: That White Christmas Song. When you don’t have time for too many tunes…..

It’s OK to do this now that it’s after Thanksgiving. The official Christmas anthem of Texas “Merry Christmas from the Family”. Where else can you hear about cigarettes and tampons in a Christmas song? Maybe this can help explain our politics, although this guy is a librul.

AB, according to the Wiki, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merry_Christmas_from_the_Family entry this is the sequel to yours. Are you sure this isn’t Louie Gommert’s family?

hey JM, hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. These guys are really good. I’ve never heard their music before. Always great to hear stuff for the first time.

Hey Killgore. Happiest of the holidays to you and your family, my friend.

I grew up listening to Earth, Wind & Fire. They were my first concert — a double bill with the Tower of Power. Phillip Bailey, who sings lead, is a Denver native, along with two original members, so when they came to Colorado, we claimed them as our own.

They really don’t make music like this any more.

They sure don’t. These guys, and Tower of Power defined true R&B/Soul. They actually played “real instruments.” LOL!

May I throw in the Blood, Sweat and Tears, They could really play that “large sound” when they played live.
