My Thanksgiving Playlist #10 – “Good Times”

Dear Readers,

I am so happy I was able to share 10 songs with you this year. The last song, an older Jackson Five hit from 1976, is dedicated to all of our family and loved ones who are no longer with us. While moments of sadness may come, and the tears may sometimes fall, let’s try to encouraged and remember all the Good Times.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Fondly.
Monique

My Thanksgiving Playlist #9 – “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing”

Dear Readers,

I was thinking earlier today, I simply cannot have a playlist without Stevie Wonder. There is one song I’ve been listening to a lot lately Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing. As I listen to this song, I will make note of Stevie’s advice.

Fondly,
Monique

My Thanksgiving Playlist #8 – “I Say A Little Prayer”

Dear Readers,

I can think of no greater voice to celebrate this time-honored holiday with the Queen of Soul – Ms. Aretha Franklin. When I was growing up, learning the words to I Say A Little Prayer was a rite of passage, and decades later it never gets old. It took a while for me to couple the words of this song with the dance moves, but once I mastered these 2 things, I was allowed into the big girls “club.”

Fondly,
Monique
