Here are few of my favorites for December listening—some newly discovered, some tried and true. Songs about this crazy world, about turning inward but radiating outward. Songs swaddled in a Snuggie and dusted with Mariah Glitter. I’ll be playing this one during my home Fletcher Floorwork, and maybe while wrapping presents, too. Warm, warm, warmer-than-a-portable-personal-sauna holiday wishes to you and yours!
1-3 (A) Solange=So good! (B) You’re leaving not a trace in the world/But you’re facing the world.
4 I have these, even under the warmest covers.
5 I speak of wondrous, unfamiliar lessons from childhood. Are you ready?
6 She’s the only one thinking it through, people. Also: Taco Cat is from Seattle!
7 Commence overpowering desire to scream this song from rooftops. (PS: Language somewhat NSFW, depending on thy W. PLAY IT ANYWAY.)
8 (A) Mariah’s new reality show kind of disappoints me. You? (B) I am still trying to decide whether the cleavage-epaulet combination in this video makes up for it. (C) I know someone who punks his friends with this song at bars, especially karaoke bars. He walks in, gets the bar to play All I Want For Christmas Is You, laughs like a hyena, and walks out. This man is my hero.
9 (A) Sorry not sorry 🙂 (B) This is the only song that manages to get this other song out of my head these days.
10 So much hurt/On this Earth/But you loved me/And I really dared to love you, too.
11 When you gonna make up your mind?
12 Will attempt to remember this one come New Year’s Resolution Time.
