Songs We Love: Going Postal

This Thanksgiving, Morning Edition and All Things Considered are examining the import and impact of the U.S. Postal Service and its recent cutbacks. In honor of the occasion, NPR Music partner station KUT in Austin, Texas, curated a list of its staff's favorite songs involving the Postal Service.

Many of these songs revolve around writing or receiving letters, those 20th-century artifacts of communication. In fact, the fading popularity of the handwritten note ranks among the reasons the USPS is in so much financial trouble.

So appreciate these classic songs about the Postal Service -- and then e-mail your friends about them.
