It’s Thanksgiving! While the turkey broth for the Chestnut and Pancetta stuffing simmers, I cooked up a playlist. The iTunes imix is here. Some obvious favorites (e.g. Massive Attack’s version of “Be Thankful for What You Have Got, Arlo Gutherie’s “Alice’s Restaurant”) some selected primarily because of their names, but also b/c of fitting songs (Smashing Pumpkins, Cranberries, Sweet Billy Pilgrim) and others for sheer lyrical perfection (“Let’s Have Another Cup of Coffee, Let’s Have Another Piece of Pie”).
In my book, nothing beats getting together with friends and family and cooking up a big meal with some great tunes. I think I prefer that part to the actual sitting-down-at-the-table part.
Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy!
