Thanksgiving Music

No festivity is complete without the perfect music to set the tone. In essence of Thanksgiving it's good to play music that speaks to the heart but also music that gets the party started. It takes a talented hostess to play the right combination of music to match the novelty of the season, mixing a little bit of dance with some Top 40 picks and a little old school all while keeping it family-friendly. If your family is like mine "family-friendly" allows for a lot of nontraditional song choices. There is nothing like music to spark nostalgia, conversation, or creation of new memories. Ahhhh, I love music! Here are 10 songs that will definitely be on my Thanksgiving playlist.

1. Before I Let Go Frankie Beverly & Maze. Classic! Every man, woman a child can appreciate this song.


2.Off The Wall Michael Jackson. Hosting 101 Play Michael Jackson. This one definitely sets the tone for the spirit of gratitude and living easy
3. So Fly by Slim ft.Yung Joc. Even old folks love this song. Something bout the beat drop
