Be Thankful

The Wailers: Thank You Lord

A classic bit of soul ska from Bob & the boys' early days. Find it on many compilations...I recommend the great Bob Marley box set Songs of Freedom.

Sly & The Family Stone: Thankful N' Thoughtful

Subtle funkiness from the legendary Sly Stone. Get it on 1973's Fresh.

Love: Be Thankful For What You Got

One of my all time favorites. Most well known by it's composer William DeVaughan, this version moves forward at a brisk pace but still manages to keep the laid back groove. Get it on 1974's Reel to Real.

One Blood: Be Thankful For What You Got

Get it on Hustle! Reggae Disco
