Ray Davies, formerly of the Kinks, has a new song out called "Thanksgiving Day." As far as I know, it's the first rock song about the holiday. And it's by a Brit!
A local DJ used to say, "Never judge a record until you have heard it three times." Apparently, it takes the ear three listens to understand new music. After three listens, Ray Davies's new song strikes me as... eh. It will probably get some airplay on a few stations -- once a year.
