Never fear, stranger. Although I would be a liar if I didn't claim to have already enjoyed Pentatonix's inexplicably-early Christmas album, the seasonal dosage of Mariah Carey, or various Christmas-special themes, I am a firm believer of giving each holiday its proper care and attention.
So I took the liberty of whipping together a playlist in honor of Thanksgiving. In it I pull songs from every genre, each having to do with a different aspect of thankfulness this season. It is certainly my dream that each of you will pick your favorite of these songs and sing it to one of your unsuspecting family members (call it a "thanksgiving-gram" - heck, if you filmed it I would absolutely put it right on this blog). As always, you can grab my Spotify Playlist or you can get the Youtube Playlist, or just click on each song's album cover below.
So without further ado, here is...
