5 Songs to Add to Your Thanksgiving Playlist (VIDEOS & PHOTO)

It seems that almost every holiday has its own soundtrack, except for Thanksgiving. There are Halloween songs and Christmas songs, but nothing really catered to Thanksgiving, unless you count children’s music.

So, in the spirit of celebrating Thanksgiving, I’ve compiled a very literal list of songs that give thanks. While the songs listed below aren’t specifically about Thanksgiving, the music does highlight the different ways a person can be thankful, whether it’s genuine gratitude or sarcasm.

1.) “Thank You” -Dido

2.) “Thank You” -Estelle

3.) “Thank You” -MKTO

4.) “Thnks fr th Mmrs” -Fall Out Boy

 

5.) “Thank U” -Alanis Morissette

What songs are on your Thanksgiving playlist?

    lyrics:
    As we come around to take our places at the table
    A moment to remember and reflect upon our wealth
    Here’s to loving friends and family, here’s to being able
    To gather here together in good company and health

    May we be released from all those feelings that would harm us
    May we have the will to give them up and get them gone
    For heavy are the satchels full of anger and false promise
    May we have the strength to put them down

    Chorus:
    May the light of love be shining deep within your spirit
    May the torch of mercy clear the path and show the way
    May the horn of plenty sound so everyone can hear it
    May the light of love be with you every day.

    May we wish the best for every one that we encounter
    May we swallow pride and may we do away with fear
    For it’s only what we do not know that we have grown afraid of
    And only what we do not choose to hear.

    Chorus:

    May the light of love be shining deep within your spirit
    May the torch of mercy clear the path and show the way
    May the horn of plenty sound so everyone can hear it
    May the light of love be with you every day.

    As we bless our daily bread and drink our day’s libation
    May we be reminded of the lost and wayward soul
    The hungry and the homeless that we have in every nation
    May we fill each empty cup and bowl

    May nothing ever come between or threaten to divide us
    May we never take for granted all the gifts that we receive
    Being ever mindful of the unseen hands that guide us
    And the miracles that cause us to believe

    Chorus:
    May the light of love be shining deep within your spirit
    May the torch of mercy clear the path and show the way
    May the horn of plenty sound so everyone can hear it
    May the light of love be with you every day

    May the horn of plenty sound so everyone can hear it
    May the light of love be with you, may the light of love be with you
    May the light of love be with you every day
