Topic: November 2016 FSOTM - Friends in low Places - Hide your love away
Joe placed your names in a box and picked ONE person's name from the box! DINO was the winner and this month he has chosen the song Friends in Low Places for the Featured Song of the Month!
From Wikipedia: ""Friends in Low Places" is a song performed by American country pop artist Garth Brooks. It was released in August 1990 as the first single from his album No Fences. The song spent four weeks at number one on the Hot Country Songs, and won both the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association awards for 1990 Single of the Year."

ALL the song suggestions previously made in other months that were NOT chosen have been compiled into a list, and we chose one of those songs as the second song to feature as the second Song of The Month!
You've Got to Hide Your Love Away was chosen from the list of previous suggestions to go along with Friends in Low Places!
This is a Beatles song from 1965 and has been covered by Eddie Vedder, The Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Oasis, The Kentucky Headhunters, Waylon Jennings, Joe Cocker, Elvis Costello, and others!
I wasn't able to find a link to an actual Beatles recording of this song. So, here's The Silkie (The Beatles assisted with the recording of their cover, according to Wikipedia, " Lennon produced, McCartney played the guitar and Harrison kept time by tapping his guitar and also playing the tambourine"): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNyy00Hjl2g
And here's Eddie Vedder: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jPIB8yQoC4
This post has been edited to add the 2nd song of the month for November.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.
