The Very Best Playlist

The only musical constant from hosting Friendsgiving for the last eight years is that it always starts out very chill and autumnal but by the end of the night we're definitely listening to early 2000s hip hop. 

—Kalyn, NYC

LISTEN TO THE PLAYLIST

Louis Armstrong Radio

I always just put on “Louis Armstrong radio” at Thanksgiving. It ensures endless classic hits from greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke, Frank Sinatra, etc. The smooth jazz and crooning vocals are perfect background music for getting cozy over a big plate of food and curling up next to the fire with a cocktail. 

— Maddie, NYC

LISTEN TO THE CHANNEL

Endless Sunday 😌  Playlist

I've been obsessed with a YT channel & find myself turning on this video when I snuggle up to dive into reading my book.

—Jason, NYC

Ricky Reed | The Room

This is the Friendsgiving of 2020 albums.

—Max, Los Angeles

Dinner Party

This! It is chef’s kiss.

—Sophie, NYC

Alice’s Restaurant

Also, if you don’t listen to Alice’s Restaurant on Thanksgiving you should. 

— Sophie, NYC

Something’s Gotta Give Motion Picture Soundtrack

No shame, but my folks used to play the soundtrack to Something's Gotta Give in the background when we ate, so it reminds me of being at the dining room table. 

—Erica, Boston

LISTEN TO THE SOUNDTRACK

La La Land Soundtrack

It’s jazzy, emotional, magical — all the energy I want from working in the kitchen to laughing around the table.

—Mara, Jacksonville
