THE 7-YEAR-ITCH MIX: SUMMER 2010

I know what you did last summer in the wind with the wine and those boys and that breeze and Joaquin and the smoke in the school in the city -- that endless, ceaseless eve -- with the Bionic Woman and Donna and Sam and sad, ditzy Chrissy and that little baby-sister of Rain, River, Liberty, and Joaquin. It may have been '42 or '69, but, no: It was 2010 and thus have I summarily summarized what I know you did. Last summer. In the wind. With the wine. Those boys. That breeze. Joaquin. In the school. In the city.

BEST OF 2016 (PART 1)

Of the 373 songs that appeared on the 18 "regular" P of A mixes of 2016, here follow the 40 that most successfully insinuated themselves into my oft-soporific, oft-sentimental, oft-sodden, oft-suicide-ideating subconscious. May they serve as ample distraction from a world gone stark, raving, mad-as-a-March-hare/mad-as-a-hatter mad. Certifiably, insane-in-the-membrane/batshit/ape-shit//loco-en-la-cabeza crazy. Crazy as a loon. Crazy like a fox. Off one's rocker. Out of one's tree. Out to lunch. 'Round the bend. One-Flew-Over-the-Cuckoo-for-Cocoa-Puffs nuts. Nutty as a fruitcake. So here come some cray-cray/bats-in-the-belfry/screw-loose loony tunes... to soothe this savage madness...

- Residents of Maine voted to overturn a law allowing same-sex marriage.

- The New York Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series.

- Bombings in Baghdad killed 127 and wounded 448 in a single day.

- The D.C. Sniper was executed in Virginia.

- A shooting at Fort Hood in Texas left 13 dead and 29 injured.

- In the Canadian Football League's Grey Cup, the Montreal Alouettes defeated the Saskatchewan Roughriders, 28-27

- President Obama announced that the U.S. would send an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan.

- The New York Senate voted down a same-sex marriage bill.
