But what songs exactly should you be playing? Unlike Christmas , Turkey Day doesn't have any whole list of designated tunes. There are few Thanksgiving songs we return to year after year, however.

No matter what you play, your crew is sure to be thankful for it. If you can't find the words to express how thankful you are, this classic song's for you.
