The best part of Thanksgiving is getting together with friends from near and far and completely indulging in a delicious meal. The over-eating is always a good choice (just this once), until the food coma starts to sink in and the only place you want to be is back home in a pair of pants with an elastic waistband falling asleep to reruns of The Twilight Zone. Don't be that person this year, not when there are stories to be shared and lives to be caught up on.
We want to wish all of you the happiest of Thanksgivings, filled with friends, family, good food, and—of course—even better music. So we put together a little playlist for you to digest to. You can expect some of the classics—Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald—with a few modern twists thrown in (we're talking the best of Vampire Weekend and Fleet Foxes). Stick around past the feast, press play and let the conversation flow. There's no lulling to sleep with this Thanksgiving playlist.
