Unrehearsed, seat-of-the-pants, let’s-see-what-happens mixing. You never know what might fall into one of these!
The Seattle area was getting inundated with snow, so every song in this mix was pulled from a playlist of tracks with titles that included the word “snow”, “winter”, “cold”, “froze”, or “ice”. Otherwise unrehearsed and unplanned, all done on the fly.
The first Difficult Listening Hour of the new year, and it’s all “new” music! That is, not “new” as in “newly released” or even “new to my collection” but as in “has ‘new’ in the title somewhere” (except for two, one of which is an acronym, and the other features the word ‘new’ rather prominently in the lyrics). Basically, I just did a search for ‘new’ in my music collection and then winged it from there.
Every track has “thank”, “give”, or “giving” in the title. Thematically and lyrically, few if any are particularly Thanksgiving-related, and it’s a mishmash of styles and genres. Happy Thanksgiving!
