Top 10 Turkey Day Songs

This Thanksgivukkah (Thanksgiving Hanukkah), there are a lot of things to be thankful for. While we all think of what to share at the table, here are some tunes to dish out to the family.

Stream this special playlist through Spotify, hands free. Oh, and don’t forget to thank the based god while blessing your food.

1. Thank Me Now- Drake
Truth be told, I’m mostly thankful for Drizzy. Amen and mazel tov.

2. Thank You- Jay Z
The title says it all. Remember to spread those p’s and ty’s around (please and thank yous).

3. Thanks Vision- Toro y Moi
Get the gravy ready, this right here is some groovy gobbling. This track sounds exactly how it feels when you get hit with a dose of the itis after gobbling down one too many plates of Thanksgiving dinner.

4. Hey Thanks- The Wonder Years
For a pop-punk band, this acoustic song is awfully cheerful. Shoutouts for the Atlantic City mention.

5. Home- Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Heroes
Thanksgiving is about spending time with family and friends, and this song is the ultimate reunion tune.

6. Thank You- Boyz II Men
Because who doesn’t appreciate some soulful gratefulness?

7. Thankful- Kelly Clarkson
I’m thankful that I rediscovered this song because it’s perfect for this holiday. Sing it, sista.

8. Thanksgiving Prayer- Johnny Cash
It would be rude not to include The Man In Black.

9. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
A classic bit of classical music at its classiest. If you don’t watch this special, you’re a turkey.

10. What A Wonderful World- Louis Armstrong
This song is a classic and cutting it from this list would be as shameful as Christopher Columbus invading North America and claiming the territory of Native Americans for the colonists. Oh, wait…

BONUS TRACK: I’m Like A Bird- Nelly Furtado
Turkeys are considered birds and I bet leading up to this day, all they want to do is fly away.

“If music be the food of love, play on.”- William Shakespeare
