Take a deep breath, Americans: you can practically smell the turkey in the oven. Why? It’s Thanksgiving in the good ol’ US of A, and we wanted to make a playlist just for all of you who are celebrating today. So, we asked you guys what’s on YOUR Turkey Day playlist this year, and took your suggestions from our Facebook page to make The Ultimate Thanksgiving Playlist. Did you suggestion make the cut?
10. Coldplay — Paradise (submitted by Chairil Huda’s Sanz)
Let’s face it: a big spread at your family’s house with mashed potatoes, stuffing, casseroles, cranberry sauce, and the big ol’ turkey just sounds like paradise, does it not? Be sure to blast this song when you first feast your eyes on the, well, feast.
9. Earth, Wind & Fire — Getaway (submitted by Stephen Calgaro)
We all need a getaway every now and then, so this song goes out to y’all who are vacationing this Thanksgiving. Take it from Earth, Wind & Fire: “I know we can getaway, just leave today…”
8. Lenka — Everything At Once (submitted by Shanti Swaroop Prabhakar)
When the adorable Lenka sings “As pretty as a picture hanging from a fixture, strong like a family, strong as I wanna be”, we definitely get the feeling of Thanksgiving. We’re grateful for our families this year!
7. The Cranberries — Linger (submitted by Sheila Jo Wright)
Come on, how can you not have a Cranberries song on a Thanksgiving playlist? It’s practically a given, with their band name doubling as the holiday’s food of choice, next to the turkey of course.
6. Beyonce — Halo (submitted by Alton Secreto Jr.)
Thanksgiving is a day to be good to your fellow man, so put on your halos, kids, so Beyonce can see them!
5. Supertramp — Take The Long Way Home (submitted by Chuck Leigh-Weston)
We’re pretty sure you’ll be wanting to take the long way home post-turkey dinner. That’s it, just drive nice and slow, don’t let your turkey gut rumble around…
4. Nicki Minaj — Moment 4 Life (submitted by Kim Hyun)
When you’re sitting at the dinner table with your loved ones and eating your fantastic meal, think of Nicki’s lyrics and cherish that “moment 4 life”.
3. Weird Al Yankovic — Eat It (submitted by Christian Eston Ridge)
We’re not gonna lie: these lyrics by Weird Al are our mantra every Thanksgiving. “Have some more chicken, have some more pie, it doesn’t matter if it’s broiled or fried…”
2. Bon Jovi — Thank You For Loving Me (submitted by Soumya Prakash)
Don’t forget to play this song for the people you’re thankful to have in your life! It’ll be sure to lift their spirits this Thanksgiving. <3
1. Adam Sandler — Thanksgiving Song (submitted by Cynthia Hernandez)
We can’t think of a better way to top our Ultimate Thanksgiving Playlist off than with the grandaddy of all turkey songs. “Love to eat turkey, love to eat turkey, love to eat turkey, ’cause it’s good!”
