Bio
A Work in Progress. When not doing the devil's work, I'm the single parent of two great young men, living playing and working in beautiful Thunder Bay Ontario. That's at the western end of Lake Superior - the North end of Highway 61. from here, you can just drive all the way to New Orleans, though I have yet to do it.

Black Friday Grooves

Rate: 5 Flag

I commented somewhere yesterday that I don't understand the appeal of lining up or even camping out just to stampede for "bargains".

 And I'm a rare guy who, at the right moment, can enjoy shopping.  That may be why I have too many clothes. (though i think that's more about wanting to look good). And I love giving more than buying for myself, so I must really love giving. Lately, mostly truck parts for Lil B.

However, I thought I ought to promote a classic rock tune with a sufficiently Black theme:

 

What? You expected Christmas music? Not before December 1, please!

Excellent choice - and how about "Black Friday" by Steely Dan?

I would change the second verse to read like this:

"When Black Friday comes I'm gonna dig myself a hole
Gonna lay down in it while others go to the mall"

I'm sitting this one out. Gonna take the kids to the movies instead.
Linda...dvds?
Andy- not familiar with the tune. why don't you post it.
Brian, if stores were as smart as you, they'd play more music like this. Love it!
Sally: Can you just imagine the urge to spend listening to a whole set of Mick?
Here's some concert footage of the song - personally, I prefer the studio version:
