Thank you songs. Do you remember that old song that goes, “Every time I try to tell you, the words just come out wrong. So I have to tell I love you- in a song.” Good point! Why stumble through a sentiment if someone has already eloquently expressed it, and put it to music?!
Here are dozens of songs with “Thank you” in them somewhere. Maybe you can find the right words to say exactly what’s on your mind.
Don’t miss the thank you songs for kids. It’s never too early to teach your kids to express gratitude.
One of my favorites is Kind and Generous from Natalie Merchant, which she released after leaving 10,000 Maniacs. I loved the video with her as part of a travelling circus. The circus performers were actual performers from the local area. When asked about the song she said, “I’m proud of the song because I always wanted to write a song that had an extremely universal, simple sentiment. And just gratitude, that’s all this song is about and really I feel like I accomplished my mission: simple, to the point. And everyone knows what I’m talking about the first time they hear the song, and they can sing along.”
