A Thanksgiving Playlist to Help Keep You Sane

“S.O.B.”, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

Drinking? There’s drinking involved during the holidays? If you’re not laughing, then maybe this playlist isn’t for you. Of course there is drinking involved with the holidays, ESPECIALLY Thanksgiving! With so many relatives in the same room—hell, even the same city—things are bound to get a little nutty. Maybe the drinking helps everyone get along, maybe it makes things worse, but one thing is for certain: it’s inevitable. So here is a song to make some people laugh and some people purse their lips. Either way, it’s a good addition, and catchy af. Just let Aunt Gertrude know that it’s just a song, and that you’re not really an addict (lie if you must).

"I’m gonna need someone to help me I’m gonna need somebody’s hand I’m gonna need someone to hold me down I’m gonna need someone to care I’m gonna writhe and shake my body I’ll start pulling out my hair I’m going to cover myself with The ashes of you and nobody’s gonna give a damn Son of a bitch Give me a drink One more night This can’t be me Son of a bitch If I can’t get clean I’m gonna drink my life away Oh oh"
