The Five Most Thankful Songs to Play this Thanksgiving

Categories: Lists

Alanis Morissette - "Thank U" 1998
Probably the most famous image of thankfulness is music is Alanis Morissette's nude and grateful video for "Thank U." Recorded after a peaceful trip to India, the song was a far cry from the angst-driven Jagged Little Pill Morissette many had come to expect. Here, she thanks India, terror, disillusionment, frailty, consequence, silence, providence, nothingness and clarity. It's a solid list, and we at the Weekly encourages you and your families to sing what you're thankful for this year as well. Clothes optional, but encouraged.

Nicole Westbrook - "It's Thanksgiving" 2012
Perhaps you recall production team Ark Music Factory's previous monster hit, Rebecca Black's "Friday?" Well, they've taken their talents into the seasonal domain with Nicole Westbrook's "It's Thanksgiving." While this new song continues in "Friday's" fun tradition of celebrating the passage of time, "It's Thanksgiving" ups the ante by accentuating the importance of how Thanksgiving is the one day Westbrook has been waiting all year for. We at the Weekly are sad to inform Ms. Westbrook that, according to her calendar in the video, she's missed Thanksgiving this year by about a week.

Thinking that Thanksgiving was short changed in the song department, a friend and I wrote one, "Tasty the Turkey":

Tasty is a very special bird who uses his intelligence, pluck and patriotic tail to save himself at Thanksgiving by getting a presidential pardon. Take a look at the video and free coloring book at the link above.
