What a year for a new year

I’ve been shoveling snow all afternoon and holy moley – it is tough. Gratifying and good hard work, but I have an oozing blister on my thumb and I think my arms and legs may actually fall off. We’re going out for (several) margaritas after my hours of no-joking slave labor, then over to some friends’ house to ring in 2007.

Last year I posted up a New Year’s mix, and I was listening to it while assembling some Trader Joe’s brownies (imported in the luggage from California, since Colorado is TJs-forsaken) for the fiesta this evening. One of my favorite songs from that mix is “Up All Night,” which seemed appropriate to belt this afternoon, perhaps because of the victorious refrain “When the roads are clear, we’ll head on outta here,” a nod to my savage clearing of the 3 foot drifts in the driveway. Plus, you know, there’s the ‘up all night’ business:

Up All Night – Counting Crows

And a few others for your end-of-the-year enjoyment:

Next Year, Baby – Jamie Cullum

This Could Be My Moment – The Verve

Start Again – Teenage Fanclub

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
