We’re all familiar with the patriotic tunes that we all sing along to on 4th of July and the joyous Christmas carols that never get old (even if we start singing them a month early), but what about songs for Thanksgiving?
Believe it or not, there are some Thanksgiving melodies! Here are six tunes you can sing with your families while you’re carving the turkey this year:
Oliver! – Food, Glorious Food
From the 1948 film Oliver Twist, “Food, Glorious Food” is what we’ll all be saying when we have a plate full of food in front of us.
Bing Crosby – Count Your Blessings
Bing reminds us that Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful and to realize all of the blessings that we have in our lives.
One of the more comical songs of Thanksgiving, don’t be surprised if you get an e-card from a relative or a post on your Facebook wall of this silly tune.
Johnny Cash – Thanksgiving Prayer
Bow your head and let the legendary Johnny Cash lead you in the “Thanksgiving Prayer” with one of the more powerful songs on this list.
Mary Chapin Carpenter – Thanksgiving Song
Complete with all the fixins, Mary Chapin Carpenter sings to us about the most beautiful part of Thanksgiving, being grateful.
Julie Andrews – My Favorite Things
Julie Andrews has quite the list of her favorite things, so if you plan on dishing out a list of things you’re thankful for, keep it short so the green beans don’t get cold.
