One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded: “Average American” by Don Arbor!!!

For as long as I’ve been on the radio, and definitely for as long as I’ve been writing a blog, I will occasionally make a reference to a song being “One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded!” (GSER)

I would usually follow that by saying that I would eventually start a category for it, but then never get around to it.

Well, now I’m getting around to it!

It will pretty much follow the pattern of The Most Awesomest Song of the Day.

I’ll select a song to celebrate and then give my thoughts about it. Nothing really brand new here that hasn’t been done before. But since I have a website, I can collect them and lay out what my own greatest songs are.

My radio show, “Prime Time Theme Attic,”  is on Monday nights 8PM-10PM ET but is on hiatus because of the pandemic.

Even though I always emphasize new music and artists, it’s always fun to take a short drive through the legendary artists, since they influenced those other artists!

But a song doesn’t have to be old or done by a legendary Theme Attic Hall of Fame member to be thus honored.

I can think of several songs that are only a few years old or less that I could identify as One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded.

This will be fun, and hopefully you will join me on my journey…at least sometimes!


The Lotto jackpots are near record highs today and tomorrow which makes many people itchy and anxious to take a chance.

I ran across a rockin’ tune by San Francisco area Singer/Songwriter and multiple Philby Award winner, Don Arbor, that kinda fits the situation.

He has it on a couple of albums: “Man on a Mission,” and his most recent, “Everyone Comes From Somewhere!” 

It’s a wish for every “Average American” who plays the Lotto as their solution to solve their financial problems.

The song tells the listener that, “you may already be a winner,” like in a clearing house sweepstakes.

But if you’ve already bought your tickets, here’s hoping that you may already be a winner!

Good luck!
