Music About Food And Drinking: A Thanksgiving Playlist

It’s Thanksgiving time and that means firing up my Thanksgiving playlist. This playlist is a mix of music I’ve put together over the years with songs that are about Thanksgiving, food, family and a little bit of drinking. Really everything that you love and possibly don’t love so much about Thanksgiving wrapped up in one jazz, blues, hip-hop and indie rock playlist.

Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
