Top 20 Songs for Thanksgiving Day

It's time to get the food trays out, sit down with family and eat like gluttonous wallabies... oh and give thanks for everything. Just don't forget to spend some time thanking people around you, and being thankful for all the good stuff in your life. In the meantime, you need a mix CD to play during the Thanksgiving holiday week.
Here are the top 20 pop songs for your Thanksgiving season.

1 - Thank You by Led Zeppelin is the top of our Thanksgiving song list. It's a great Led Zep song from the 70s, and it says Thanks in all the right ways. Very cool track, enjoy it one more time.

2 - Yummy Yummy Yummy by the 1910 Fruitgum Company (and by Ohio Express)
So much yummy food, so little time. Just make sure to share it.


3 - Cold Turkey – John Lennon The tune is all about giving up over-eating, smoking and drinking. Most people won't take that vow until the “day after.”

4 - Get Together by the Youngbloods.

5 - People of the South Wind by Kansas. An ode the native American people, from the late 1979 Monolith LP.

6 - I Thank You by Sam & Dave (1968) The ultimate "Thank You" song from the 60's set.
You didn't have to love me like you did, but you did, but you did. And I thank you

7 - Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Again) – Sly family Stone, another smooth Thanks song.

8 - Sugar Sugar by the Archies A sweet song for dessert from the 60s. I've always like this syrupy song.

9 - Just Eat it by Weird Al Yankovic. A very funny song, sung to the beat of Michael Jackson's “Beat it.”
Just eat it ... Get yourself an egg and beat it; Have some more chicken, have some more pie
It doesn't matter if it's boiled or fried; Just eat it....


10 - Maximum Consumption by the Kinks (1972) Rarely played enough, but good for Turkey day.
Pumpkin pie, whipped cream and coffee...

11 - Flying Turkey Trot by REO Speedwagon.   The song speaks for itself. It's a cool instrumental from an arena rock band your kids never heard of.

12 - Fat Bottomed Girls (1978) by Queen, for the day after Thanksgiving.

13 - Eat by Chilliwack, an early 70s tune

14 - Apples, Peaches, Pumkin Pie by Jay & the Techniques

15 - Let's Turkey Trot (1963) by Little Eva

16 - Eat at Home by Paul & Linda McCartney

17 - Thank You for a Good Year by Alexander O'Neal

18 - Give a Little Bit by Supertramp

19 - Thank You Very Much (2007) by the Kaiser Chiefs

20 - Turkey (1971) by Paul Revere & the Raiders


Those are the best Thanksgiving Day songs about food and giving thanks.  Spin the tunes and enjoy the turkey, food, family and friends, the whole season.
