YOU CAN GET ANYTHING YOU WANT…

In 1967, singer/songwriter Arlo Guthrie released an album titled ‘Alice’s Restaurant’. The main song on the album was a 18 minute, 34 second musical monologue, by the same name. It is a historical account of events that Arlo and his friend Richard Robins experienced Thanksgiving Day, 1965.

The song was an instant hit and its lyrics became a slogan for the 1960’s anti-war movement. Historically played on radio stations at 12 noon on Thanksgiving day, marking the day in which the events of the song took place. This song that was so popular in the 1960’s is very much relevant today.
