Song Of The Day 12-31-10 - "And We Bid You Goodnight" by Grateful Dead
As we get ready to put another year to rest, what better way to send you all off than with this standard performed by Grateful Dead. They had been closing shows with this song for over 25 years by the time of this 1989 performance. Many a-New Year's Eve was spent in my youth listening to the Grateful Dead broadcasting from the West Coast on the radio as our own New Year's Eve parties were beginning to wind down on the East Coast. Jerry's gone...but not forgotten...2010 is gone...and in many cases...better forgotten..."And We Bid You Goodnight."
