"Thank You" Songs: A Thanksgiving Playlist

"Thank You" Songs: A Thanksgiving Playlist


This week people around the country will be saying thanks for their blessings: family, friends, good health, etc. So it's a fitting time to make a playlist of music that captures this sentiment in song. Many popular songs that express gratitude have to do with thanking a romantic partner for his/her love, but there are plenty of tunes that are simply thankful for someone's kindness (Natalie Merchant's "Kind and Generous") or for good friendship ("Thank You for Being a Friend" by Andrew Gold, later covered and used for the Golden Girls theme song).

If you wanted to say thanks through song, which tunes would you pick? I've selected a smattering of songs full of gratitude (including some silly ones), which you can check out if you

Thank You Songs

Also, Led Zeppelin's "Thank You":

And, if you enjoy the silliness of this as much as I do, "So Long and Thanks for All the Fish" from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy":

The only songs I can think of with Thank You in the title are Thnks Fr Th Mmrs and Thank You For Loving Me, which I both love. But I once gave a cd to my grandma with Because You Loved Me on it to thank her for being there :)

"Thank You Jack White for the Fiber-optic Jesus That You Gave Me" by the Flaming Lips immediately popped into my head. Though that's more Christmassy I suppose.
