Listomania: The Songs That Give Thanks, a Field Guide
It's hard to argue with Charlie Brown: Thanksgiving is here, man (paraphrased). Over on our on food blog, City of Ate, the writers are counting down to Thanksgiving with odes to their favorite T-Day foods. DC9's thinking: why can't we join in on the fun?
Not a song, but we sure are thankful for this.
After the jump, we've constructed a compendium--an A-Z field guide, if you will--of the songs spanning time and space that give thanks to loved ones, to drugs, to whatever they desire. If you're the type of family that goes around the table and declares "thanks" on this holiday, then these songs may gave you inspiration.
