Thanksgiving Songs for when you might not be feeling that Thankful.
Back in 2014, I posted a post that referenced these two songs. I’d like to remember Thanksgiving 2014 as we sit down to 2020 without a whole lot of discussions about much of anything else… even though neither song has aged particularly well but… well, there aren’t that many Thanksgiving songs.
I know that you aren’t able to spend time with family that isn’t already in your bubble and that you’re missing your loved ones and that you’re wishing that you weren’t here refreshing your webpages. Well, know this: I am thankful for you. I’m not spending time doing Thanksgiving stuff with my family like I’ve been doing since 1999. But I’m spending it here with you. Maybe I’m eating leftover pizza. Maybe you’re eating leftover pizza. Maybe we’re all eating leftover pizza together.
As such, I’m pleased that we’re eating leftover pizza together. From me and mine to you and yours: Happy Thanksgiving. I’m pleased that we’re all here together eating leftover pizza (or whatever) and, you know what? Next year is going to be awesome. It’s going to be *AWESOME*. This year, though, I’m pleased to be spending it with you.
In the meantime, please enjoy these two semi-traditional Thanksgiving day songs (both, of course, share content warnings for potentially offensive content):
Dan Bern’s Thanksgiving Day Parade:
Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant:
