You Can Have Anything You Want

...except a singing turkey, I guess.  You see, it's a Thanksgiving Day tradition on this blog to post the video of the turkey singing "I Will Survive."  But this year, due to some copyright thing-y, I am not able to do so. I don't really understand it. I mean, if someone wants me to pay them so that I can post that thing, I will. But there doesn't seem to be any option to do that.

So, I sulk.

I guess I could dress up in a turkey costume and sing the song and have someone film it, if we possessed either the tools or the talent. But we don't, so we shall have to go with a different Thanksgiving tradition this year. You know, the one involving Alice.

Remember, if you want to end war and stuff, you gotta sing loud.


  1. In honor of the many decades that have gone by since the last time I heard that (on vinyl!), I listened to the WHOLE thing. And people say *I* tell long stories. If I used the phrase "protest music" I don't think my kids would know what I was talking about, but I listened to so much of it, back in the last century. . .

    Anyway--peace on earth, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Have some more pie.

  2. We baked Alice's sweet potato pie from Alice's cookbook yesterday, and yet somehow I forgot that the whole thing revolved around Thanksgiving dinner. D'oh!

  3. I missed the turkey, though. Here's a link to it:

  4. Watched a considerably older Arlo singing it, from a link from MovieMom's blog. Priceless.

  5. You can have anything you want... I will survive! :)
