Riffs: Thanksgiving now means a plethora of pop music weirdness on television
While the rest of our family spent much of Thanksgiving watching football in the living room, Click Track went down to the basement to channel surf for morsels of pop music surrealism. Among the strange things we saw...
... Kanye West performing his most soul-shattering cut ("Lost in the World") on a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade looking like an extra from "The Warriors"...
... Taylor Swift on her Thanksgiving special singing "Haunted" in a spooky house as if trying to win the forgotten Evanescence demographic...
...and a dose of flashback surrealism courtesy of the Centric network: A 19-year-old Al Sharpton giving James Brown a "black record" for "The Payback" on Soul Train in 1974!
