ROCKOLLECTIONS: HOME FOR THANKSGIVING 2012 PT.2 END

I don't mind telling you that getting this 2nd half out there was a huge pain in the butt.
While I am Thankful for so MANY things...computers are NOT necesarily one of them!
Ah, but that's a nice looking Turkey!
And the Holiday is getting very close as people are making there way Home For Thanksgiving.
There are those who host Thanksgiving Dinners and those who are guests.
If you are hosting and waiting for those guests to arrive, the first song in this closing half of the show is for you.
I try not to repeat songs on this Rockollections thing, so you more often than not will hear a song played and never hear me play it again!
There are always exceptions of course, when that same tune may at another time fit perfectly into a Theme.
But each year I try to come up with different songs about Going Home.
I ask you to try these on for size, lol!
And I will be leaving early in this concluding chapter, as I will be playing a song that was one of the first to break the 10 minute mark in Rock Music- and this was way back in 1966! 
Plus it is by a group that is very very well known to you.
No, it is not Ten Years After...I played that one 2 years ago and that was from 1969...but it has a very similar title.
Here's a great quote by Frederick Keonig for this Day Of Gratitude:
 
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
 
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
And I Thank You!

I have played Talking Heads before, and will again very soon.

So it's NOT Once In A Lifetime...with two meanings for that statement, lol!

Well, there you go. I heard it once in my lifetime! Maybe you can now play a song from Talking Heads!

Jon,

Can't You Hear Me Knocking would fit if you were interpreting it as an effort to get in out of the storm.

But You Can't Always Get What You Want can be used in connection with the hurrican too, you just need to have some imagination and it can be applied.

Not a bad idea on your part, and I love Can't You Hear Me Knockin- I MUST find a reason to play it soon!

But the Stones song I did play was over 4 minutes longer, and should be heard at least once in a lifetime.

The 7 minute song was "Can't You Hear Me Knocking", that would have fit!

I got it...and I got gas too, lol!
Smelled like turkey!
The dreaded Kiss made you vomit?
I'd rather have gas!
Glad you liked the that Billy Joel song.
But your album collection is too small to be AWESOME, LOL!
Hell, I have more records than most radio stations!
What 7 minute Stones song were you thinking of?
You Can't Always Get What You Want?
Which is another motto for the show, lol!
I always stick around, sometimes I end early because I am always running long, trying to fit as much music as I can in, so why bother coming back to speak when I can sign off before the last song- I hate talking over the songs!
Thanks for the listen and writing, hope you and the family had a nice Thanksgiving,
Mike

They might just be carrying a can of gas, they might have gas when it's all over. Get it!!??

This started off fine, and then Kiss appeared. After I finished vomiting all over myself, Connie and the cats I got back to the show. That Billy Joel song is really good, and I have it! My album collection is AWESOME! 

And the Stones song? Meh. Thought you were going to do another long Stone's song instead, but it would have been only 7 min or so, so you would have had to stick around.....

RJ,
I can't say I didn't think of you when I played that Kiss song, lol!
You are the leader of the parade for them!
And I wanted to sneak it in there, when you wouldn't expect it...then BAM!
I thought that Billy Joel song had been on ice for too long, and it was time somebody gave it a spin...namely me.
Karla Bonoff beats The Rolling Stones for the Golden Pell?
I can't argue with the choice, because the Stones song goes on and on- but it gave me a chance to sign off early, lol!
But the important point was that the Stones Goin' Home was 3 years BEFORE Ten Years After did I'm Goin' Home.
They were among the first that broke out of that time limit like Dylan did, but he was Folk and they were Rock.
It was a strange and wondrous time, so I'll always love that Stones song.
Also the things Jagger was saying in there was pretty racy for its time too!
Hahahahahaha...BEST Thanksgiving show ever eh...since I played Kiss!
I thank you for always listening no matter how painful, writing, and most especially for your friendship.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family, open the door and let 'em in,
Mike

OMG!  I can't believe you played that third track.  Kiss is definitely the greatest.  My book, of course.  The start of that song put quite a smile on my face.  Thanks for playing it bro!

Also, that Billy Joel song is very good.  I wish I'd never heard it so I could give it a Golden Pell.  But, alas, I have, so the Golden Pell comes down to Carla Bonoff or The Rolling Stones.  I'm going with Carla.  The Stones song is okay but a bit long winded.  

Nice Thanksgiving show Mike, probably your best ever since you played Kiss.
