The Weekly Music Thread Is Thankful

Let’s discuss any and all music here. Got a new artist who’s rocking your boat that you want to talk about? Post a video! Found out about that unearthed Coltrane album that has the jazz freak in you losing your mind? Lay it out for us! Have a theory about what your favorite band might do for their next album? Let’s hear it! Anything and everything music-related goes here.

This week’s discussion prompt: It’s the fourth Thursday in November, which means that today is American Thanksgiving. Two years ago I wasted what I thought was a very good discussion prompt on what turned out to be a sparsely-attended thread, so last year I opted to keep it simple, and I’m keeping it simple again this year: What, musically, are you thankful for?

Is there an album or band that you discovered at a crucial stage in your life that was exactly what you needed at the time? Did a spur-of-the-moment bargain bin purchase or random Columbia House/BMG selection turn out to be an all-time favorite? Were you lucky enough to have a friend, older sibling or parent turn you onto something you might not have heard otherwise? Let us know down below! And if you feel like interpreting the prompt differently, by all means go for it!

BONUS PROMPT: What’s your favorite ABBA song?

As always, any and all music-related posts are welcome. Have fun, and rock out with yr guac out!
