I wanted a quick post for today; after all, it IS a holiday. I found a Thanksgiving playlist: Top 20 songs of gratitude, which was a pretty decent roster. It contained some good, but obvious choices, such as Sam & Dave, though NOT the original version, and I couldn’t find that on YouTube either. There were also some nice finds, such as Ella doing that Bob Hope theme song.
I did notice, however, that while the Sly song is on the list, it doesn’t play on Spotify like the others. There is a live version of the videos, but here’s a studio version of Thank You…[LISTEN]. Also, a surprising omission: Thank You by Led Zeppelin [LISTEN], which DOES appear on similar lists.
Listen to some songs of thanks, then go do what you do on this day, such as eat turkey, watch football, or quite possibly nothing special at all because you’re not in the US, and it’s just another Thursday.
Here’s a little Thanksgiving art.
