2022 december playlist

January 6, 2023
Middling month but with some really good songs from the series "Conversations with Friends"...

Let It All Go
The Sei
5 Stars - This song is really somber and beautiful. The call to "let it all go wrong", reminiscent of that verse from "Hallelujah", somehow it really speaks to me, the importance of embracing the life even when it's not what we wanted.

I'm So Humble (feat. Adam Levine)
The Lonely Island
Finally got to watch "Never Stop Never Stopping". Weird Al-level rhymes - I love the 60s rock (doo wop?) intro and bassline.

Little Big
Saw some tumblr point mentioning how their 5 year old play this over and over skewed their Spotify end of year list... a lot of goofy fun and catchy as hell.

Sin Wagon
The Chicks
"Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition"

Remember Me (Sure Is Pure 7 Inch Edit)
Blue Boy
Old 90s from Derry Girls.

RU Ready
"Macho Man" Randy Savage
Macho Man's delivery reminds me of "Chuggo"
Santa Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto
James Brown
Trader Joe's has some really good music in the background...
Austin Lounge Lizards
Based on a true story about a jerk shooting majestic old cacti.
Run the Track
Some nice percussion in this one.
Wicked Game
Tenacious D
Fun cover, not sure it improves on the original all that much. But I love the original.
James Blake
More slow and stately and somber music.
Christmastime For the Jews (Saturday Night Live / SNL) [feat. Darlene Love]
TV Funhouse
SNL goof. Impressive how they reconstructed the old "Wall of Sound" sound.

Hot In Herre
"can't believe that on the day hot in herre was recorded, nelly walked in the booth & hopped on that neptunes beat with "good gracious, ass is bodacious" & not a single person was like hey wait a minute man" --@NifMuhammad
Up On The Housetop
Reba McEntire
Solid Christmas song.

It's a Big Old Goofy World
Alice Howe & Freebo
Got tagged by a friend on this for obvious reasons.
Frozen Logger (Live)
Derroll Adams
My mentioned this one, the whole line - "no but a logger stirs his coffee with his thumb".
The Season's Upon Us
Dropkick Murphys
New Seasonal Classic.
