HOW SWEDE IT IS

Stumbled upon this little blast-from-the-past while preparing the current "regular" mix that accompanies it here today. Originally curated by myself and posted on this blog in April of 2010, it somehow seems oh-so-cozily-apropos in this guilded age of "Mama Mia!" madness.

Eat your heart out, Roxette. Do your stuff, Swedish Bikini Team. Wherefore art thou, Swedish Chef (bork! bork! bork!)?

BEST OF 2017 (PART 1)

Of the 393 songs that appeared on the 19 "regular" P of A mixes of 2017, here follow the 42 that most successfully insinuated themselves into my oft-soporific, oft-sentimental, oft-sodden, oft-sophomoric, oft-insensate, oft-insomnia-insensible subconscious.

[A note: I have recently succeeded in falling and fracturing my humerus -- something I do not begrudge to concede I do not find humorous in the least. Surgery, it would seem, shall follow shortly. In the meantime, I pledge to do my best to keep this site updated as most I can manage. Please do be patient with this incipient, nascent patient....]

2017: 20 ALBUMS

Here follow 20 albums that most thoroughly goosed my moose during the year 2017. Perhaps you're already familiar with them; perhaps it's better if you're not.  Nothing quite like having new music to investigate and evaluate; nothing quite like that prickly, electric thrill of discovery and that first blush of love.  So please do feel free to left-click on the artists' names in order to invoke additional information, sound samples, and the like....

[A note: For reasons I think you can quite comprehend, these albums are not available for download from this website.]
