When it comes to finding the right music to get you into the holiday spirit, some celebrations are easier than others. We all could name dozens of Christmas songs off the top of our heads—why don’t other holidays get the same treatment? But while it doesn’t look like Michael Bublé’s going to be releasing a Veteran’s Day compilation any time soon, and Mariah Carey’s not about to put on a sexy sycamore costume to release an Arbor Day bop, at least you’ve got more options than you think when it comes to Thanksgiving.
And while it’s not as easy to find music for Thanksgiving, we all need something to listen to while we’re running around the kitchen and getting our turkey and stuffing on. Plus, it’s nice to have background music while everyone’s eating, so you won’t feel the need to fill the silence with conversation, and your guests can sit back and enjoy the meal. No one wants to talk with their mouth full like they’re at the dentist. Let them eat turkey!
Whether you’re spending the holiday with your family (chosen or otherwise), celebrating Friendsgiving with the boys, or enjoying a solo meal this year, there’s no reason you shouldn’t have the perfect playlist to get you in the holiday spirit. Yes, it’ll take a little more doing than scoring your Christmas dinner will—you can’t just turn to a Thanksgiving-themed Sirius channel and call it a day—but there are plenty of songs about Thanksgiving, autumn, and remembering to be grateful for all the gifts that life has given you.
After all, a meal isn’t just the food on the table: it’s also the atmosphere and the experience. If you’re going to put all that effort into nailing the side dishes, perfecting your table set-up, and picking the right outfit, why settle for a sub-standard soundtrack? So start putting your playlist together now, because these seasonal songs are sure to set the grateful mood to complete the Thanksgiving dinner experience.
