Thursday Mixtape | 125 Songs That Get My Vote (Side 1)

325

We’re in the midst of a mayoral election where I live, and the frontrunner was just very publicly and credibly exposed as — and I’m paraphrasing here — a drunken, incompetent buffoon and serial sexual harasser. Now, you’d like to think that would disqualify someone from office, but these days, it might just put them over the top. On the plus side, it should make for a more interesting campaign. While I find somebody else to vote for, check out these 125 unimpeachably excellent singles, videos, cover tunes, remixes and unearthed classics — including dozens of gems you won’t find anywhere else. Today’s Tinnitist-approved tracks are tagged with a 🗳. Every one’s a winner:
