I could not think of a single song for Thanksgiving! Closest was Roll around the house tonight-sung to Rock Around the House! I’ll spare you the rest! So, I went to a wise source…Okay, I googled it! Lo and behold, it had a list!
The first one, I laughed at “Food Glorious Food?” from Oliver!. How ap propos! Okay, not sure…appropriate!
Followed by the greed song in Willy Wonka -the one with Gene Wilder, of course!where the little girl, Violet, turns into a blueberry! My inclusion!
“Count Your Blessings”-the old Bing Crosby standard.
The hymn which truly epitomizes Thanksgiving, “We Gather Together.”
In a different vein, Adam Sandler’s hilarious, “Thanksgiving Song”
And for our dose of schmaltz, but, I love it, too! “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music
And I tell all my clients that this time, as well as all the time, keep a Gratitude Journal. Write down 3 things you’re grateful for each day! It could be birds singing or crisp apples, family or a roof over our heads. It can be the simplest thing. Also, write down all the people you’re thankful for having in your life! Say thank you to each & why! Thanks to all my readers who let me share my thoughts and send your comments!
