Get your turkey on, bitches!

For a variety of reasons I shan’t explain, me and mine actually celebrate the day after Thanksgiving — it’s called Thanksgetting, and it’s sweeping the nation — so I may actually manage to get a Listening Booth or three up today. But if I miss the boat somehow, you’ll still have this handful of songs that are either about Thanksgiving or have the word Thanksgiving in the title. Enjoy!

Dan Bern – Thanksgiving Day Parade
Don Henley – My Thanksgiving
George Winston – Thanksgiving
Jack Handy – Thanksgiving
Lewis Black – Thanksgiving
Loudon Wainwright III – Thanksgiving
Adam Sandler – The Thanksgiving Song

EDITED to include William S. Burroughs’ “A Thanksgiving Prayer” (courtesy of our good pal Ted. Thanks, Ted!)

EDITED AGAIN to accomodate our bloggy friend Eric’s request for Green Day’s “Macy’s Day Parade.”
