Thanksgiving Playlist

I threatened to do it, and 1 hour and 48 minutes before turkey day, it's done. Here is my Thanksgiving playlist, in alphabetical order by song title. On a better day, all of these songs would be linked. Apologies. However, I did put it together using Grooveshark, and if you're interested I can share my playlist with you - it should be easy for you to listen to it in all its glory.

I'm pretty sure this is the most eclectic playlist I have ever put together.

Hey! I was just thinking about this list today. And then I wondered if Pandora has a "Thanksgiving" channel. I will check and see tomorrow. I want good American tunes wafting through my house along with all the lovely smells.
