A Friendsgiving Playlist You'll Love
This Friendsgiving playlist, curated by me, is designed to enhance the ambiance of your Friendsgiving soirée.
Friendsgiving is a fun tradition where friends get together to celebrate friendship, often sharing a Thanksgiving-style feast.
Planning and preparing for the feast and decorating your home can take most of your focus, but don't forget to plan the playlist. The right music can create an unforgettable atmosphere.
My sister-in-law and I used to plan a Friendsgiving for all of our friends. And while she made sure our Friendsgiving menu was on point, my job was always the music.
This mix of songs is relaxed, mellow and mostly indie. The right mix of music always sets the tone for a party. I made this list long so that you can push play and not worry about it.
Tips for Choosing a Playlist
To decide what kind of music is right for your party, you need to look at who is coming.
If this is a Friendsgiving with your close pals, pretty much anything goes. If there are kids, you may want to tone down the songs with swearing.
For a family function with multi-generations, you'll want mellow music that blends into the background.
Jazz is always a great option if you don't know what else to play!
How to listen to the playlist
Playlists are the best when they are on shuffle so it's new to you every time you listen.
I love to create my playlists on Spotify because the platform is super easy to use. I pay for the upgraded version so there are no ads (which is great for a party), but they offer a free version as well.
You always have the option of upgrading for the month of November so you can listen ad-free and then go back to the free plan again in December.
I used to do that for my parties but I really love my playlists so decided to bite the bullet and pay every month. And I also have the app so I can listen to all my playlists on my phone and in the car.
This is totally not sponsored. I just love this music platform the best!
Just connect Spotify to a Bluetooth speaker or through the TV.
Make sure to turn on Auto Play so that Spotify adds similar music to the playlist and doesn't stop when the songs on the list have finished.
Head over to the Friendsgiving Playlist on Spotify to see the full list of songs and listen to it all the way through.
Music for Friendsgiving
It would also be great to listen to in the car and on your holiday road trips! I'll be listening to mine in the kitchen as I prepare my Thanksgiving dishes too!
On Spotify, you can follow individual playlists and/or users. Be sure to check out my other favorite playlists:
- Rap and Rosé (chill rap to sip rosé to)
- Rap to Bother my 6th Grader (old school stuff to rival his new rap)
- The Beach at Sunset (this is the one that I listen to most. Relaxing music to listen to while doing just about anything - over 9 hours long!
- It Sounds Like the 80's but it's Not
- Songs to Clean To - Put this one on as you get your home ready for guests.
This Friendsgiving playlist is great music to have on in the background as you spend time with your favorite people.
