This Friendsgiving Playlist is full of cool, mellow indie songs to create a chill vibe and be the perfect background to the party chatter.
Making playlists is one of my favorite ways to procrastinate.
I have been a music lover for as long as I can remember and with technology making it super easy to gather your favorite songs, my obsession with them has only grown.

A Friendsgiving Playlist You’ll Love
Have you ever hosted a Friendsgiving? Throwing a Friendsgiving is pretty much what got this blog started in the first place.
My sister-in-law and I used to plan a Friendsgiving for all of our friends. We got crazy.
We decorated, we cooked, we had a blast. And we knew that we could come up with really great entertaining ideas for other people.
So months and months and many more parties later, this blog got started.
While she went off and got too busy having babies to continue with it, I will always cherish those Friendsgiving memories and this blog.
The right music always sets the tone for a party. I tried to make this list long so that you can push play and not worry about it.
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 ($9.99 a month, or the family plan at $14.99 a month) so there are no ads, 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!
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!
Cool Friendsgiving Playlist
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!
Head over to the Friendsgiving Playlist on Spotify to see the full list of songs and listen to it all the way through.
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
