“Thing is, I don’t like beards.” ~ this lady, I hope
(random old things that came up tonight around the house: this song and Swimming to Cambodia)
we need to talk about my Van Houten.
I took that Not Punk playlist and replaced every song with a different, slightly-less-popular (but in many/most cases still very popular) song by the same artist.*
Some of it (certainly the opener) might still get airtime on those Mom-O.R. radio stations (“We Play Anything!”ª), but IMO it’s better than silence or CNN and it won’t alienate your visiting friends/family who never got more edgy than Eponymousº, Unforgettable Fire, and that Drivin’ ‘n’ Cryin’ album with “Straight to Hell” on it.
* couple exceptions for true 1HWs or other songs where there just wasn’t another good one, in which case I tried to stick to the general vibe.
ª “…within this tightly proscribed 240-song playlist covering ’76 to ‘97”
º REM. that mutual drum horn mix, woof.
pass me a mug of medium duty coffee
just as well I’ve been trying to quit Instagram, if it’s gonna go down all day.
