Can you believe it’s already Thanksgiving week?  I love Thanksgiving, so I’m happy about it.  For those of you (like me) who celebrate with tons of food and lots of fun, are you ready?  Turkey defrosting or ordered?  Side dishes plotted and planned?  Good – then all that’s left is some fun music to accompany the accompaniments.

If you haven’t guessed it by now, this week’s theme for Monday’s Music Moves Me is songs about thanks or songs you’re thankful for.  I always like to think outside the box, so I’ve come up with another fun eclectic mix to make everybody happy – and possibly thankful.  First up, is a great song by ZZ Top with “I Thank You”:

Songs on Thanksgiving week cannot be complete without Adam Sandler’s “The Thanksgiving Song”:

When I was thinking ‘thankful and ‘fun’ songs, this one came immediately to mind.  And I guarantee you’ll be singing along with Sawyer Brown, “I Thank God For You”:

And finally, a song that has been around forever and always gives me goosebumps, Louis Armstrong with “What A Wonderful World”:

I thank God for you, my Dear Readers – let’s enjoy this Wonderful World…and your Monday!

Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:

  1. I have never heard the Adam Sandler song, but I was holding my breath trying not to crack up and wake up my hubby. It was hysterical!
    I love the Top song and I totally forgot about the Sawyer Brown song, but I love it and will be singing it all day today!!
    Thanks for posting the Louis Armstrong song, I have always loved it and it made me smile today.
    Have a fabulous Thanksgiving… HUGGLES!

  2. Can you believe it, I’ve never heard the Adam Sandler song? Thanks for sharing it, though. It’s hilarious! I hope y’all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! =D

  3. I usually love Thanksgiving but this year is nothing but stress. We are going to my sister-in-law’s and she just realized yesterday that she can’t feed my youngest because of her dairy allergy. Still not sure what we are going to do.

  4. You are getting so good at this Girlfriend. I don’t know why I didn’t choose I thank you by ZZ Top Dave sings that all the time in the band for years. Adam Sandler I thought of that one, but where I found it they would let me embed, but I’m glad you found it that’s just too funny. I never heard Sam & his song, but a very entertaining video too cute & your winding up with Louie is perfect! Maybe I should make you head conductor!! ~hehe~

  5. What a Wonderful World always makes me cry. Little o likes me to sing it to him at night, and he pats my cheek.

    And what holiday can’t be improved by ZZ Top? NONE!
