There aren’t that many straight-up Thanksgiving songs other than Adam Sandler’s “Thanksgiving Song” and Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restaurant”.

But someone managed to come up with a list of the 60 Best Thanksgiving Songs.  And they did it by . . . CHEATING.

They widened the net so that a song doesn’t even have to mention Thanksgiving . . . just things like coming home, getting together with friends and family, and stuff like that.

That way, they were able to include such soon-to-be Thanksgiving playlist mainstays as Motley Crue’s “Home Sweet Home” and the “Friends” theme song.  (Very timely.  I see what you did there.)

It’s a bit of an injustice, however, that “Alice’s Restaurant” did NOT make the list.  Here are some of the tracks that did:

1.  “I’ve Got Plenty to Be Thankful For”Bing Crosby

2.  The theme from “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”Vince Guaraldi Trio

3.  “Thanksgiving Prayer”Joanne Cash

4.  “That’s What Friends Are For”Dionne Warwick

5.  “How Sweet It Is”James Taylor

6.  “Lean On Me”Bill Withers

7.  “Thanksgiving Song”Mary Chapin Carpenter

8.  “We Are Family”Sister Sledge

9.  “What a Wonderful World”Louis Armstrong

10.  “You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To”Harry Connick Jr.

11.  “Take Me Home, Country Roads”John Denver

12.  “Our House”Madness

13.  “In My Life”The Beatles

14.  “Thank You”Dido

15.  “Photograph”Nickelback
