Folks, Thanksgiving is THIS week. The holidays are now here, not just merely approaching. THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Time to get yourself in that kitchen and start cooking. Of course, you’ll need music and lots of it! Luckily, I’ve got you covered in that department. I’ve put together a cooking playlist just to cater to your culinary preparation needs.
This playlist will include a variety of songs. Some of these songs will of course be about cooking and/or food, while some of these songs will just move your feet while you mash those potatoes. Some of these songs might be more tailored to a specific holiday – for instance Bing Crosby’s “Christmas Dinner, Country Style,” or the “Thanksgiving Theme” by the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Most of these songs, however, will work year round.
One last thing – I realize that Grandma and Aunt Frida might not appreciate heavy metal and a bunch of R rated lyrics, so I’ve tried to keep things PG-13. There is one song, The Rolling Stones’ “Start Me Up,” that has a bit of questionable content. Maybe cough or something at the end of the song. Or maybe just ignore the lyric altogether. Seriously, I was at a Golden Corral and heard this very song – ending lyrics and all, played in front of soooo many kids, so maybe I’m giving you a warning for absolutely nothing.
Enjoy this Cooking Playlist, and Happy Holidays!
This Cooking Playlist is just the beginning!
The day after Thanksgiving, you might find yourself in the stores. You poor, unfortunate soul. Maybe this year you should skip the shopping maul, and stay home. Why? Because Audioperfecta will publish a very special article that day. Ok – ok, maybe you could read the article while you’re waiting in line for that 100 inch, 10k TV – that’s your business.
What is this special article? I’m doing my second artist exploration. This time, I showcase one of my all time favorite artists, Over the Rhine. Maybe you know them, maybe you don’t – but hopefully you’ll love them after reading my article this Friday.
One last article of business….if you follow us on Facebook, please like, love, share, and comment any and all of our posts you enjoy. Facebook’s algorithms now favor pages that have “meaningful interactions.” While a simple like always seems lovely and helpful, the love interaction means even more in Facebook land.
Thanks, and I hope this cooking playlist helps your kitchen grove into the holidays!
