A Thanksgiving Playlist

Be thankful for what you got. Music for the holiday.

2. "A Good Sauce From The Gravy Bowl" - Cab Calloway.

3. "Long Gone, Like a Turkey Through the Corn" - Lightnin' Hopkins.

4. "Turkey in the Straw" - Broke Strang Band.

5. "Turkey Gotta Gobble" - The Rev. Horton Heat.

6. "Mashed Potato Time" - Dee Dee Sharp.

7. "Pecan Pie" - Golden Smog.

8. "I'll be Your Bird" - M Ward.

9. "Thanksgiving Day" - Ray Davies.

10. "Almost Thanksgiving Day" - Graham Parker.

11. "Thanksgiving" - Loudon Wainwright III.

12. "A Thanksgiving Prayer" - William S. Burroughs.

13. "I Thank You" - Sam & Dave.

14. "Thankful & Thoughtful" - Sly & the Family Stone.

15. "Thankful For What You Got" - William DeVaughn

That's all that fits. So some of the usual suspects -- "Surfin' Bird" by the Trashmen -- got cut. Any suggestions for seconds?
