November 3, 2022
Everything's Sweet
Kai Straw
Just a decent modern song.



Seven Nation Army (feat. Alice Russell)
Nostalgia 77
Rayyan posted this one. It makes at least my seventh version of Seven Nation Army...



You Want It Darker
Leonard Cohen
Super deep and dark song with religious overtones, via the trailer for "Bones and All"
Ghostbusters
Run-DMC
Kinda by the numbers rap version of the classic theme.



In Love With the World
Aura Dione
Mostly here because I dig the concept of "you're in love with a girl who's in love with the world"



Skeleton Sam
LVCRFT
from the soundtrack to "Hocus Pocus 2" that my friend Sophie is an extra in.



Take over Your World
The Party Band
Great, great, great closer for a local HONK favorite. Has that SNL-ending closer energy... take over your world / make it a better place / do real good things / and together we'll sing / just try your best / that's all we can ask / to bring world peace / and harmony



Gotta Work
Amerie
A lot like her other song but damn I love those horns and drums
Family Reunion (Live/1999)
blink-182
Goofy profane celebration of "The 7 Words You Can't Say on Television"
I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink (Re-Recorded)
Merle Haggard
Cracked says to give country a chance
Kryptonite
3 Doors Down
Cracked also talks about the reign of the razor scooter. I feel like I should know this song more than I do.
Please Don't Go
KC and the Sunshine Band
So, I loved the clubby Double You version of this song when I heard it in Portugal, and amazingly was able to find it at Newbury Comics by talking to the clerk. Had no idea it was a cover. This version is slower but good.
Got to Get You Off My Mind
Solomon Burke
Classic R+B referenced in "High Fidelity" when he's talking about the rules of the mixtape (he thought it might be too much to lead off with for a gal he was crushing on so he buried it on side two)



Shutdown
Skepta
I do dig english hip hop - used to parody the UK government in this twitter video
June
Gizelle Smith
Throwback R+B they play at the bar at Simon Pearce in Woodstock VT.



Don't You Want Me (feat. The Weather Station)
Bahamas
Amazing slow cover... Sometimes you just don't realize how dark a and menacing song is until you slow it down...

Hey Elon: Let Me Help You Speed Run The Content Moderation Learning Curve - great points on what an impossible job it is.
