    Peak Christmas

    I feel like we've finally passed peak Christmas. Until recently, there was a steady Christmas creep, with stores putting out their displays earlier and earlier, and radio stations playing Christmas music before the first snow. This is the first year I can remember the post-Thanksgiving aftermath not being all about Christmas. Black Friday also seemed more mellow, with less mania as people realized they could just order gifts on ye olde Internet. Of course, this is all anecdotal.

    This makes me wonder if there will ever be a song called "Vaping In The Boys' Room"

    What winds up your Cassette?

    There remains a small group of people who cling to their cassettes. These are often people who drive cars that still have cassette players in them. They just love the sound of tape hiss.

    I'm still here a fair amount.
  8. Billboard is doing a retrospective of their Alternative Songs chart, which is 30 years old. This story is about "Cuts You Up" by Peter Murphy, which quotes our interview. Murphy is a rather nebulous interview, but he gave us a rather enlightening answer when we asked about that song. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/8479703/peter-murphy-cuts-you-up-alternative-songs

    Chasing the name of a song and artist.

    Maybe this one? https://www.songfacts.com/facts/bic-runga/blue-blue-heart
  10. The Kinks are becoming a popular choice for poignant moments, even here in America. Heard "Waterloo Sunset" in a big weepy scene somewhere recently.
  11. Maybe not perfect for this occasion, but "Joey" by Concrete Blonde is a pretty vivid description of being in love with an alcoholic.

    Song/Video of the day

    Battle rapping is a media cliché perpetuated by people who have likely never seen one in real life. Unless Eminem is involved, it's rather contrived. Snickers is particularly uninspired in this commercial. What a waste of Elton John.

    Down to Earth Cool Chick

    Don't see girls that are gearheads like this very often. Ed Sheeran would approve.

    Suicide Songs

    Seems young people have levels of anxiety and depression that exceed those of previous generations. One thing about these suicide songs is that they often come with information on how to get help. The Logic song 1-800-273-8255 is the best example. That's the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which has gotten a huge increase in call volume. We reached out to them about the impact of the song; they explained that whenever Logic performs it, they get a spike. They coordinate to make sure additional staff is on hand.

    "Only U"

    We'll get on it. Would be a good one to have in the database.
