A while back on Twitter and Facebook I asked the thankful community if there were any songs with the message of gratitude and appreciation they knew of and loved.
Brenda Phillippe Auch remembered Thank You by Dido. Ibis Kristina Cabarcas Martínez told us about Gratitud by Fonseca (Colombian Singer). She even quoted her favorite part, and as she did so in Spanish I had to ask for a little translation:
"I feel thankful for my life, for my family and my country, I feel thankful because I want to sing, I want to scream for happiness , I feel thankful, 'cause my heart has got the most beautiful things in life..."
Don't you just love the last line?
My own song choices proved to be kind of unexpected and a little funny... The first that came to my mind was Tupac's Dear Mama, and then I remembered Pharrel's Our Father! Isn't that... well, funny?.. Later I also remembered Christina Aguilera's Fighter, and just recently thought (when it started playing on my iPod) that Alicia Keys' Like You'll Never See Me Again was a really good reminder too!
So what's on your thankful playlist?
