2001 is a hard one for me – not for lack of great music, but more because I was a depressed human making bad decisions during most of that year, and come that September, the national climate took its own downturn. The feels, man. Let’s have them.
People, wasn’t 2000 only just yesterday? I swear that it was, even though I was still in high school then and still driving Sid The Angry Volvo (R.I.P.), and even though the musicians in some of these videos look like babies in comparison to now, 2000 just happened. Don’t spoil my illusion just yet.
The Letter T is another jumbo-sized letter because I couldn’t make up my damn mind. So many good songs, so much with which to sing along. Let’s get to it:
Oh, friends, we’re chock full of love, lust and loneliness in this week’s Ode to The Letter O. Stick through until the end since I’ve left you all a present. Oh yes.
Songs that start with The Letter N (somewhat predictably) often have the words “Never” and “New York” in their titles. We’ve got that here, plus some ’90s classics. Get in.
Oh, The Letter L is a good one this week because I am sharing some of my All-Time Favorite Songs, of any letter. In some ways, it was difficult to articulate why these songs make all the right parts of my brain light up, and it’s tempting to just say, “Well, listen! It’s obvious,” but no, we do know I still like to go on a bit.
Somewhat predictably, this week, I’ve a lot of songs that start with the word “I” or its variants, but that’s all right. I is for “I love these songs.”
This week’s glorified love letters to my favorite songs features some All-Time Favorites, of any letter, that just so happen to all start with The Letter H. As usual, we’ve got a heaping amount of love and loneliness, but this time, with a side of glitter. Behold!
