Point of Revue

2016 in Revue

It seems as though I haven't posted in a year. I think we can all agree 2016 was a tumultuous trip around the sun, and if you'd like a peek into my personal experience of the last 12 months, I'd implore you to enjoy my 2016 in Revue mix.

A distillation of all (well, most) of the songs I fell in love with this year, 2016 in Revue is free for your perusal by download here.

Or, if you prefer, you can just hit play on this YouTube playlist.

Or, if you'd like to get your paws on one of the little luggage tags I crafted from vintage book pages, I'd be more than happy to trade you actual, physical mix CDs. Just drop me an email to arrange.

2016 in Revue

2016 in Revue
1. Born Again Teen - Lucius
2. Up on Cripple Creek - The Band
3. If U C My Enemies - Rubblebucket
4. Queen Bee - Taj Mahal
5. What a Fool Believes - The Doobie Brothers
6. Love as Strong as Doubt - Fort Defiance
7. Sila - A Tribe Called Red feat. Tanya Tagaq
8. JJ - Priests
9. This Land is Your Land - Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings
10. Dim Lights, Thick Smoke - The Flying Burrito Brothers

Perhaps a little more upbeat than such a year would warrant, this mix is primarily love songs that reflect my happy first year of marriage as well as cheery songs I sought out when feeling the burden of a bad news-laden year. I hope it brings you cheer.

Here's to comfort and joy in the new year.

Hi stranger!!! 2016 was so insane for so many people. I have been beyond crappy at writing on my blog for two years. Twitter has made it to where I can just post a quick 140 letters and be done with a random thought. It is a goal to do more blogging in 2017. I will check out your youtube list, I make monthly playlists as well. Good luck to us both. Hugs

HELLO! It's good to know I've not been the only derelict blogger! I will check out your monthly playlists. Thanks for sharing!

I miss your blogging! But I'm glad you found a moment to share some music. I dig it.

And of course I had to come up with a playlist of my own.

Here's hoping 2017 is...sigh, words escape me. But I hope YOU have a great year.
