Suggestions for an edgy, down-to-earth Thanksgiving playlist?

My husband and I are going to be spending T-giving mostly by ourselves, probably cooking for most of the day, and I got the notion of making a CD as a soundtrack. I'm looking for good songs about gratitude/thankfulness.
I would definitely prefer songs that are upbeat (although laid-back a la Grateful Dead is OK too) and not sticky-sentimental, and while I AM grateful for the love of my mate, that seems to be the primary topic of most songs about gratitude I've been Googling and I'd like something a little more original. Neither of us are religious, so overtly religious songs are right out unless they've got a REALLY kick-ass arrangement.
I have seen this AskMeFi
, but I'm asking again because it seems like that guy wanted mellower stuff than I do.
"Gratitude" by the Beastie Boys and "Wonderful World" by the Ramones are the only songs I'm REALLY set on at this point. What works with that?
