Today’s Song of the Day is not chosen for mysterious reasons. The song is ‘Give Thanks and Praises’, and it is off of Bob Marley’s marvelous album ‘Confrontation.’ Thanksgiving is one of America’s most wonderful & unique holidays, and while the focus can sometimes be on congested traveling, calorie-indulgence, and a required rendezvous with extended family – at heart it is a day of pause so that we can recognize all that we have in our lives to be thankful for. And we all have a lot to be thankful for.
And while Bob is most certainly addressing more spiritual thoughts, as opposed to referencing turkey-day, the wonderful thing about Thanksgiving is that it is a concept that transcends all boundaries of country, religion, etc. And on top of that, it is a classic, slow-buringing Marley reggae tune. So before you dive into your cuisine-satiation, or after, turn up the volume a little and reflect on the day with a little help from our friend Mr. Marley.
From everyone at OurVinyl.com, have a most wonderful and grateful Thanksgiving!
