When Thanksgiving rolls around every November, people across the country gather ’round a food-covered table with family (or friends and chosen family!) to reflect on their blessings and give thanks. And, yes, possibly eat ourselves into a collective tryptophan coma.

Given that November 2016’s political tumult will have an effect on a plenty of people’s Thanksgivings this year (there’s entire articles about it on in the New York Times, and USA Today, and Vogue, and ABC News, basically every third media outlet), our Thanksgiving Playlist is packed with calming feel-good songs, as well as some that focus on something we all love: FOOD.

From Kelly Clarkson‘s “Thankful” to Kacey Musgraves‘ “Family Is Family” to Stevie Wonder’s open-hearted “You Are the Sunshine of My Life,” enjoy our Thanksgiving songs via Apple Music below.
