Thanksgiving Jams: Stuff Your Face to These Songs

With Thanksgiving just around the corner of tomorrow, we're having a hard time thinking about anything that isn't turkey, potatoes, cranberries, gravy... mmm. In short, we're hungry. But even if your turkey is still defrosting, you can satiate your eardrums thanks to this playlist stuffed with tunes about "Vegetables," "Pork and Beans," "Fried Chicken," "Sweet Potato Pie" and, err, "Nicotine & Gravy." 

Naturally, Arlo Guthrie's Thanksgiving essential—the hysterical folk epic "Alice's Restaurant Massacre"—is included on our playlist. So is Weird Al's "Eat It," a spoof that has no expiration date. And just to give you a bit of indigestion, we tossed in the Smiths' "Meat Is Murder." It might give your conscience pause, but hey, it's still pretty tasty.
