With Lady Gaga playing holiday hostess yet again this year with another Thanksgiving special,along side the Muppets, music from televised specials on that day seemed to be the appropriate choice.
So,let's start off with Gaga,as her special for 2012 got off to a grand old school start with a duet as she and Tony Bennett proclaimed "The Lady Is A Tramp":
In addition to performing the newer tunes from Music Box such as "Hero" and "Dreamlover", she also showcased several big hits from her past like "Vision of Love" and "Someday"-I hope that someday Mariah gets another choice to be a real music mentor and not waste her energy in a silly diva feud:
That record was considered to be a major crossover for her as Taylor began to make more of an impact on the mainstream pop circuit. As part of the promotion for Speak Now, she did a number of impromptu concerts in places like a double decker tour bus in Hollywood and an airport lounge.
The special included such singles from the album as "Mine" "Mean"(which won her a couple of Grammy awards that year) and "Back to December". I know some people find her to be a little too sweet but I feel that she's more comfortable in her own skin than certain other singers around her age and a tad more mature to boot:
Have a Happy Thanksgiving,folks and what ever music you choose to play at dinner time, please make sure that it contributes to the spirit of the day in an appetizing way:
