Rhode Island DJ Songs of Thanks

I thought it would be fun to make a collection of songs with the word “Thank” in the title. So, I’m calling this Rhode Island DJ Songs of Thanks. Not very original but makes sense due to tomorrow being Thanksgiving. Some songs are traditional songs related to Thanksgiving but some aren’t, or are a little more playful about saying thank you or giving thanks. “Thank You” by Led Zeppelin appears twice, the original and a somber cover by Tori Amos.

Dido wrote the song as a tribute to her boyfriend, entertainment lawyer Bob Page; they got engaged in 2001 but split the following year. It remains Dido’s biggest hit single in the USA to date, and her only one to reach the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. “White Flag“, which features on her second album Life For Rent, is about their split.

“Thank You” signaled a deeper involvement in songwriting by singer Robert Plant, being the first Led Zeppelin song that he wrote all the lyrics for. According to various Led Zeppelin biographies, this is also the song that made Jimmy Page realise that Plant could now handle writing the majority of the lyrics for the band’s songs. Plant wrote the song as a tribute to his then-wife Maureen.

Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)” is a 1969 song recorded by Sly and the Family Stone. The song, double a-sided with “Everybody Is a Star“, reached number one on the soul single charts for five weeks, and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1970. “Thank You” was intended to be included on an in-progress album with “Star” and “Hot Fun in the Summertime“; the LP was never completed, and the three tracks were instead included on the band’s 1970 Greatest Hits LP. “Thank You” and “Star”, the final Family Stone recordings issued in the 1960s, marked the beginning of a 20-month gap of releases from the band, which would finally end with the release of “Family Affair” in 1971.

The song’s length on the original hit single and the “Greatest Hits” LP is 4:48 and was re-channeled to simulate stereo on the very popular “Greatest Hits” LP. The previously unreleased full length version in true stereo (6:18) was mixed by Bob Irwin and only issued on the 1990 Columbia promotional CD “Legacy: Music For The Next Generation”. On the subsequent (and currently available as of 2013) “The Essential Sly & The Family Stone” 2-CD set, the track is in stereo but is the standard 4:48 length hit version.

Rolling Stone ranked the song #402 on their list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time“.
