As we all learned from SNL this past weekend, music (or at least Adele) can save a Thanksgiving dinner like nothing else.

The music site/app will cook up a playlist that's measured for peak turkey roasting time. Just answer a few crucial questions: How many pounds is your turkey? Is it stuffed or unstuffed? And, pray tell, what type of music do you like to rock out to? (Kitchens should be judgment-free zones, so if you want to dance around to country or bubble-gum pop, we won't judge). There are options like Golden Oldies, Americana and Club Kitchen, aka dance-around-in-your-apron music.

All of the lists end with a small ringing bell that tells you your turkey is done. (Still, it's best to also take the bird's temperature starting a few songs before the list is over to make sure it hits 160 degrees, meaning after sitting, it will hit the 165-degree ideal.)

And remember, when all else fails at Thanksgiving, Adele really can save you:
