THE 7-YEAR-ITCH MIX: SPRING 2007

Last year at about this time, I chose to flip the typical P of A script by revisiting a rusty, tetanus-threatening sliver of my mp3 past. That sliver encapsulated some of my most treasured musical memories from the winter of 2006 and was presented in proper, karmic/cosmic conjunction with the astronomical phenomenon that is the spring/vernal equinox.

And so, as we celebrate yet another successful encirclement of the sun -- and as we in the North begin to dig ourselves out of a particularly bitter winter -- the time has once again come to cast our yearning ears rearward.  For, as that old Greek goat Socrates was wont to philosophize: An unexamined assemblage of mixtapes is neither worth assembling nor mixing in the first place.  (I paraphrase.) 

So I invite you -- my fearless, fellow time-travelers -- to return with this inveterate mixtape assembler to a time neither so very long ago nor so very far away.  A time that -- while perhaps ever-so-slightly brighter-eyed and bushier-tailed than the one we currently find ourselves biding -- we can only hope will prove as soft-focus familiar as it does sharp-contrast surprising...

BEST OF 2013 (PART 1)

Of the 345 songs that appeared on the 16 "regular" P of A mixes of 2013, here follow the 41 that most successfully insinuated themselves into my oft-soporific, oft-sentimental, oft-sodden, sometimes-seizures-&-hallucinations-besotted subconscious.  That they appeared here once suggests that I couldn't help but be smitten with their initial, dauntlessly indomitable, Lloyd-Dobler-cum-boombox overtures; that they appear here twice proves that I have long-since fallen head-over-heels/ass-over-teakettle for their enviable endurance and endowments.

Oh, and... just to be clear... neither the songs nor the mixes are listed in order of preference, merely arranged in what I hope will make for a smooth-yet-varied listening experience.  Finally, technically-speaking, not all tracks were released in the year 2013.  My mixes would sooner contain a Taylor Swift ditty than be confined by calendars.

THE 7-YEAR-ITCH MIX: WINTER 2006

'Tis winter, 'tis true.  But 'tis not a time for distemper or discontent...'tis not a time for recrimination or regret.  No, 'tis a time to turn one's cheek... for forgiving sins... for making peace.  A time to bury strife by righting wrongs... for dancing... laughing... seasoned, salty songs.  A time to resecure the ties that bind... a time, in short, for auld lang syne.

So, as you hang your stockings with care not coal... as you get crocked on 'nog and kiss 'neath mistletoe... as you play games with reindeers, dreidels, or Festivus poles... please savor these ghosts of days drained gray (BEST OF OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, and DECEMBER 2006). When 2014's sun comes up -- as come up it must -- there'll be tunes anew just as sure as Rudolph's gay...

Autumn befalls us, causing me to yet again repair to my lair of musty mixes (BEST OF JULY, AUGUST, and SEPTEMBER 2006) in my never-ending quest to separate men from boys; wheat from chaff; cat's meow from cat's pajamas.  And I'll be a monkey's uncle if you should come to judge the consequent collection of chants, carols, and canticles as anything less than the bee's knees and/or the dog's balls...
