THE 7-YEAR-ITCH MIX: WINTER 2007
Now, don't get me wrong: I'm pleased as a partridge in a pear tree to be sharing the subsequent slew of songs with you. These are the ones that still turtle my dove and french my hen from my BEST OF OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, and DECEMBER 2007 mixes. And, truth be told, they still sound almightily righteous to these grievously aging ears.
But the holidays can be a trying time -- so much so that I've long-since stopped celebrating them. Which is why -- this year, in this place -- there shall be neither holly nor ivy. Nights shall be neither silent nor holy. Halls shall not be decked. Gay apparel shall not be donned. No maids shall be a'milkin'. No little boys a'drummin'. And nobody whatsoever a'wasasillin' (whatever the fuck THAT means).
I ask you: Who the hell cares what child this is? What business is it of mine if you hear what I hear? And, frankly, if you saw your mommy kissing Santa Claus, your mommy is a whore.
But be ye not taken aback by my Grinchy bitterness -- 'tis but a passing phase. A phase of squashed sugar plums & shattered sugar canes. Of broken bells -- be they "silver" or "carol of the." Of unheralded angels & unroasted chestnuts & Good King Wenceslas (who everybody that knew him says was actually a real shit).
In the new year, my mood shall surely improve. And yes, yet again, there surely shall be tunes anew.
In the meantime, please enjoy these ghosts of mixtapes past...
