A Thanksgiving Playlist For Working Out And Hanging Out

If you want to get things more lively this holiday, give this playlist a try on your run or around the table.

This Thanksgiving, we’ve revisited a host of workout hits new and old in search of the tracks that best embody the big day’s themes. So, if you’re looking for tunes to score your festivities or a workout playlist to help you burn off those second helpings, the songs below set the mood in either case.

The list kicks off with an ode to returning home from Shania Twain and winds down with gratitude from Alanis Morrissette. In between, you’ll find tributes to family and friends from Mary J. Blige and LCD Soundsystem alongside calls for good times and joy from Chic and Three Dog Night. Finally, Kacey Musgraves portions out some sage advice–by way of food-related wordplay–in her hit “Biscuits.”

All of our picks are below, if you’re looking for something to fire up this week as you run, dine, and give thanks.
