I have started a new feature: The Most Awesomest Song of the Day!
Here’s a link to the complete list: https://philmaq.com/most-awesomest-songs/
I want to emphasize mostly, relatively newer music, just like on my Monday night show, “Prime Time Theme Attic.” (Monday nights 8PM-10PM ET when it returns.)
Here’s the link for when that day comes: http://rdo.fm/r/4qntu )
But I can promise this: I will not force my selections. If something doesn’t hit me, I won’t post one.
Everything I do has always been about shining a spotlight on the artist and their music.
Now I will have the potential to shine 365 more spotlights if I want to!
You won’t be able to look up at the sky in Southeast Michigan tonight and see this month’s Full Moon.
But many others in the world will be able to see the Beaver Moon in all its glorious splendor!
Yes, this month’s historic moon name is derived from the time when traps were set to catch those busy creatures so their furs could be used to stay warm in the winter.
Although it may be hard to believe (Ha, Ha!), there aren’t too many songs written about beavers or beaver Full Moons.
So, I have decided to select a song that celebrates the hardest working rodents in the world, and indirectly Canada, the country that has selected them as a symbol for its country!
The Arrogant Worms, a Canadian group that specializes in humourous songs, took things to a higher level by recording a version of their “We Are the Beaver” song with The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra from the “Semi-Conducted” album!
Man! The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra get all the best high profile gigs!
And The Arrogant Worms salute the beaver in the best way they know how: by mocking other countries symbols!
“The U.S. is the Eagle/
Russia is the Bear/
Australia is the Kangaroo/
‘Cause they’re kinda weird down there.
India is the Tiger/
That stands so proud and tall/
But Canada is the greatest of them all!
We are the Beaver!”
Let me go on record that I am a fan of The Arrogant Worms, Canada, and beavers!
They’re very cute, and I’ve never run across one that I haven’t found enchanting!
And as The Arrogant Worms firmly declare:
“The Beaver always gives a dam!”
I personally know this to be true!
What The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra did for whales and dogs, they also do for beavers!
The Most Awesomest Song of the Day is “We Are the Beaver” by The Arrogant Worms!!!
