Response: Memories

Down at the Sea
Beat Happening

mr fish is having a party
down at the sea
with really loud music and the food is free
down, down at the sea
so let's put on some sun tan lotion
drive your car out to the ocean, to the ocean, to the ocean

where we can play all day
down at the sea
and we won't care if there's anyone's there
down, down at the sea
i've got the beach ball and you've got the song
everbody's gonna sing along, gonna sing along, gonna sing along

put the radio under a palm tree
down at the sea
it's a swinging place for you and me
down, down at the sea
dance, dance, swish, swish
i dance with the clams and you dance with the fish, you dance with the fish, you dance with the fish

when the sun comes down we'll go to sleep
down at the sea
mrs lobster's gonna tuck us in
down, down at the sea
and we'll dream about the waves out there
combing in and washing us away, washing us away, washing us away

Why this response?
This was a hard call with the Hocus Focus because there was no clear "thanks giving" message.  So I decided to interpret it as being thankful for the memories I have, specifically, memories with my family at the beach.  This song isn't specific to giving thanks on its own either, but it gives a nostalgic feeling of being younger and letting your cares go at the beach, which I am very thankful for. 

How does this relate to giving thanks?
Like I said, it's not a direct link to thanks giving, but it reminds me of something I am very thankful for.  I hope that counts. :)
