Monthly Mixtape: Honey and Sugar and Mayonnaise

New yeaaaaar! New like, everything. Year, decade, century, millennium, myrioi, megaannum, all of it. Don’t argue with me about this, just smile and look pretty.

To celebrate the new all of it, I’ve obviously got some sick beats for you. Actually, can Taylor Swift throw me in jail for using the words “sick beats”? I feel like she did something with those words a few years ago, but seeing as how it’s the new megannuum and all, she can rightly chill her face.

I like Taylor, don’t get me wrong. But if you’re going to “own” some words, why those? Why not something more inventive like Mango Toot Head.

. . . wait, did you leave already?

Back to the mix!

It’s a theme this month. You know how I like a good theme. And a gazebo. I like a good gazebo, but that’s neither here nor there.

This month’s mix has FOOD in every song title. How fun is that? And let me just tell you now, when I started crafting this playlist, I made it a goal to NOT REPEAT foods. And then I realized that was dumb because there’s a lot of horrible, awful music out there with food in the title. And I’m not doing that to you. Honey is everywhere. Sugar is everywhere. Mayonnaise is everywhere. Not really on that last part. But it is a Smashing Pumpkins song (there’s has one n in it, but we’re fine) from the early ’90s, so clearly we’re doing this.

For the most part, this mixtape is upbeat, cheerful, happy! There are little dips here and there because that’s my soul. Lots of older songs. Actually, all older songs. Nothing after 2000, except one song! What does this say about me?



No promises.

I give you . . . The “Honey and Sugar and Mayonnaise” Mix.

You ate your black-eyed peas two days ago, right?!

    Hmmm. This looks interesting. I like the theme. I am going to have to try Spotify again to listen to this. I'm old and I don't know, I just didn't like Spotify the first time I used it so I offloaded the app. On another note (no pun intended), I have never listened to the Cranberries. But know you are obsessed. So when I saw one of their CD's in Goodwill I got it so I could give them a listen. And I hate to say it but they're just not my jam. Don't hate me. I'm a child of the 70's (I told you I'm old) and that was what I grew up on; late 60's & early 70's music. So I love that stuff but I have found a lot of music from other eras that I like, especially the 2000's. Well, I'm sure you didn't need to hear all of this and I'm going to keep listening to that Cranberries CD because sometimes that stuff will grow on you. I wasn't crazy about Joni Mitchell the first time I heard some of her music but I'll fight you now if you say anything bad about her!! Have a good weekend!

      Ohhhhh you must be a new follower to not know my undying devotion for Joni Mitchell! She's the absolute queen of the universe. I have her on muuuultiple mixes. Could never get enough of Joni! And YES - okay, regarding The Cranberries - I can get that! Listening to then in the '90s is much different than listening now. ALSO, which album did you get? They have power albums, and some not so great. Ode to My Family is LIFE. The VERY BEST. I bet you found something later in their career. None the less, happy new year!!

        I was looking for Friday Flotsam this morning and alas, you took the day off :( So I decided to see if you responded on this and you did! I've been following you for about 3 years and yes, I knew you liked Joni Mitchell. I was just saying when I first started listening to her, some of her stuff had to grow on me but grow on me it did. In any case, The Cranberries' album I got is Everyone Else is Doing It So Why Can't We? Or something to that effect. I'm gonna keep listening and see if it grows on me! Happy Friday!

          Flotsam's posted! Are you not seeing it yet? It went up early this morning, like normal. :) Ahhhh yes - Everybody... album, their first! Did you hear Linger? That's the song we covered. I DO hope it grows on you because it's a such a magical album. Happy Friday to you!
