I’ve Got Plenty To Be Thankful For

I’ve Got Plenty To Be Thankful For is an Irvin Berlin classic. He wrote the son for the 1942 film “Holiday Inn“.

The movie stared Bing Crosby, whose version of this song is best known.

In the film, Crosby’s character, Jim, is depressed and lonely after losing his sweetheart. Asked to write a song for the Thanksgiving holiday, he writes “I’ve Got Plenty To Be Thankful For“.  In the movie, he has a negative comment {to match his depressed mood} to answer every positive notion found in the song.

The song reminds us of the simple things to be thankful for and thankfully for Jim {in the film} things begin to look up shortly after he sings this song.

What are you thankful for?
