#4M : Turkey Songs



Today’s theme for #MondaysMusicMovesMe or #4M has been chosen by Stacy of Stacy Uncorked.  She has chosen all of the themes for the month of November.  Today her theme selection is “Songs of Thankfulness or Thanksgiving”


I hope Stacy doesn’t mind, but I went a slightly different direction.  

I focused on the main part of the Thanksgiving meal - Turkey

Here are 5 Turkey Songs for you to enjoy:

  • REO Speedwagon - Turkey Trot
  • Ohio Players - Jive Turkey
  • Freddie Schnickelfritz Fisher - Turkey In The Straw
  • Jefferson Airplane ~ Wild Turkey
  • Thelonious Monk - Stuffy Turkey






Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who are celebrating, Happy Thursday to everyone else!

Today’s post is part of the Monday’s Music Moves Me blog hop, hosted by X-Mas Dolly, and co-hosted by JAmerican Spice, Stacy Uncorked, Curious as a Cathy. , and Ramblin with AM. Be sure to stop by the hosts and visit the other participants.  If you have a MUSIC* post, feel free to join in the fun! *sorry non-music posts are not permitted in this bloghop.

  1. Bwahahahaha I must admit the Jive Turkey tune made me laugh. Reo SW - I thought that might be a instrumental. Also, I couldn't sleep so I got up for some hot tea & tunes to see if it will help me sleep some. Okay, what else ya got here girlfriend? Ooops Turkey in the Straw, another smile on my face.. girl you're battin' a 1,000! hehehe~ Up next Jefferson Airplane man, didn't know they ever made this tune, instrumental or no! Cool and last, but not least Thelonious Monk - Stuffy Turkey I never heard of Mr. Monk or his Stuffy Turkey, but this would be the kind of music I'd like to listen to in the car. Words sometimes distracts my driving especially when I really get into it. hahaha How about you my friend? Anyway, HAPPY THANKSGIVING & I'm very thankful I met you and thanks for posting! HUGS

  2. Mary,

    I'm thankful for the guest of honor on Thanksgiving Day...the turkey!

    REO Speedwago 'Turkey Trot' I almost used last year in my Thanksgiving playlist and now I wished I had. I really like the sound and it doesn't really make me think of Thanksgiving at all. lol I did pick your #2 selection last year, though. I remember in the 70s the phrase 'jive turkey' was such a common thing to say when someone was being an idiot or just plain stupid. lol 'Turkey in the Straw' is a vintage tune. lol What fun!! Jefferson Starship 'Wild Turkey' didn't ring familiar but I sure do like it. 'Stuffy Turkey' is an introduction but I like this jazzy number. I can't believe with its 50+ year history this is the first time for me to hear it! You really brought the party to life with your mewsic features, dear friend. I hope you have plenty of good times this Thursday. Thank you for being my friend and may God bless you! ;)

      Most of these were new to me as well. But you know me, I love learning and finding new tunes. I almost didn't post today, but at the last minute I pulled this one out and glad that I did.

      Thankful for our friendship, too! Hope you have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving!

      There are actually a few more songs with Turkey in the title, but I wanted to keep the list short and fun.

      Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Happy Turkey Song Day! Oh yes, what was that, three instrumentals? Four songs new to me? My fave was Stuffy Turkey - I'm not a huge jazz fan but this was so mellow it was wonderful to rock out to. Jefferson Airplane came in a close second. Thank you for the musical meal and I hope you and your family have a happy one.
