The [Almost] Ultimate Thanksgiving Eats Mix

The best Thanksgiving mix doesn't have to be thematic -- as with all

music that accompanies a gathering like the one Thanksgiving requires,

it should be easy to listen to, unrecognizably pleasant: background

music.

But our goal here isn't necessarily to give you songs to

accompany the event.  It's to get you thinking about what the holiday

should really be about: gratitude, gatherings, the changing of seasons

and partaking of food and drink together.  After all, Thanksgiving's

roots are dubious at best, so instead of pretending the holiday is a

sincere one, you've got to try to make it about love and sharing presently.  Also, these songs could at least make a really, really good cooking soundtrack.
