By now if you're an avid reader of this blog you've come accustom to this post around every Thanksgiving. It's one of the few traditions I keep, but every turkey day I dust off Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant and listen to the title track. Clocking in at over eighteen minutes it is a lighthearted yet very profound folk song full of spot on social commentaries. Thanksgiving is a family holiday, and I don't think anyone has the right to call their family normal. Every family has their eccentricities and bizarre facets, and the people that Guthrie introduces us to a whole host of crazy characters in this song. So, while you're putting together your tofurkey for tomorrow why not take a little trip to Alice's Restaurant.
