    Mixtapes Explained, continues, this from the ‘A very BSMW-y Christmas’ Official Soundtrack Album

    White Christmas – Jocko Fergus and The Coonhounds – A bandleader with the names of Regular Brian’s past and present dogs, with an unlikely backing band for Jocko.

    My Snow Hat’s Now In A Snowbank (and That’s Nowhere For It To Be)- Volin’s Simple Brain – A band name suggestion, and Ben once referred to Tom Brady’s winter head cover as a ‘snow hat’, to much Board derision. The letters that spell out ‘s-n-o-w’ appear in order four times in the song title. Fun!

    O’ Kristallnacht – DCM – An Alt-Right traditional carol and a favorite of some of the former Dennis & Callahan & Minihane Show. Probably.

    A Child’s Christmas At The Whalers- Stan Beher and The Brass Bonanzeers  – A Christmas gift to Wingo Square’s own Standard Bearer, a fan of the old Hartford Whalers and their ‘Brass Bonanza’ song and the title based on Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales.’

    NORAD’s Tracking Santa? (What a waste of taxpayer money)- Bruise Envy and the freethinkers – Hi howzie! (@BruceNV on the twitter)

    Have Yourself A Murray Hewitt Christmas- Flight Of The Conchords w/Thirdkill – An old gag, repurposed.

    A Coachman’s Christmas- Oswald Brougham and the Knowledge – Another callout to our erstwhile cab driver Ozzy. Based on a Beaker post from way back.

    Pinned Mittens- Rumford Eagle – based on this wonderful response post from Scott;

    Oh Christmas Sales- Shalize Navidad – A song about things our dear Auntie Christmas would rather attend than events at Gillette Stadium.

    Rene The Red-Nosed Rancourt- The New Original Six – Old time hockey song about the beloved Garden national anthem singer and heroic imbiber.

    A Visit From St. Nicholas- recited by The Honorable Thomas M. Menino (deceased) – I wish he actually did this.

    I Wanna Rocketcar For Hannukkah- R.B. and the Scofflaws – Rickky could use a rocketcar to outrun pursuit.

    Christmas Means That Truck Day’s Rounding Third – Merle Samuel Hornsen – Honk Honk! Yayyyy Truck Day! Merle is, of course BoSoxLady Cheri’s consort, and in pseudoNordic naming touch, is a Son of Sam Horn. Sorta.

    The Nutrocker Suite- A Daily Pounding – Another entry from Xxx Xxxxx’s imaginary all-girl band, playing an ELP classic.

    It’s Yuletide In Manhattan Where I Live- PK and the Fingerwaggers – Peter King, if you did not know, he lives in Manhattan.

    Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime/Step Into Christmas- Tool – Two terrible Christmas songs, perhaps made listenable by the rock stylings of Tool. Or perhaps not.

    Do Astronauts Get Mistletoe Instead Of Athlete’s Foot? –Little Tiny Jerry Thornton & The Rimshots –   -“Get it? Missle-toe? Eghk.”

    S’Wonderful Life- Suzy Zou Bisou (With First String Kevin) – A Gershwin/Mad Men/IAWL mash-up.

    Christmas In Millis- Average White Band – A take of on the holiday classic ‘Christmas in Hollis, by Run-DMC.

    Jag fick ditt svenska Yule log här – Rubber Volvo –  Translation from Swedish –I Have Your Yule Log Right Here.

    In even-numbered years, I also do a Labor Day weekend Mixtape. It is themed differently than the Memorial Day compilation.

    Songs of Work and Toil;

    1. Workin’ in The Coal Mine/Sixteen Tons – Oswald Brougham and the Knowledge – Late poster Ozzy always had, if not a soft spot in his heart for the coal miners, a hard spot in his slacks against the coal mine owners. So a medley of two songs about mining. Getting back to the band name; Someone named Oswald could be referred to by the familiar ‘Ozzy’, a brougham was a type of carriage & later large/luxury car style, and prospective cab drivers in London, England need pass ‘The Knowledge of London’ exam to earn their green badge.

    2. I Dreamed I Saw Joe Gill Last Night, Collecting EBT- Jayden Seeger – A reworking of the hoary folk song about IWW’s* Joe Hill, done here by a putative relation of Pete Seeger, one with that currently and absurdly popular boys name of ‘Jayden’. And about our favorite underemployed content cook. (*- No, not about Wrestling.)

    3. The Hardest Job in the World…X3 (Theme to the ABCFamily program ‘Nurse TeacherMom’) – Sara Bareilles (with Kelis & Vonda Shepard) – What if one person had to do the self-described three hardest jobs in the world? A mom, who also teaches at a nursing school? And what if it was a TV show? It would need a theme song. With three singers. Ms. Bareilles best known for that ‘Love Song’ from some years back, Kelis for that ‘Milkshake’ song, and Ms. Shepard did the theme to Ally McBeal.

    4. I Hate Myself More Than I Hate My Job & I Hate My Job A Lot –Live Zzam & The CSN Symphony – Live Zzam is merely Evil Mazz spelled backwards. A play on the ‘Evil Tony’ persona. And a guy who has that many awful radio personas must be full of self-loathing.

    5. Arthur T is Right For Me/Arthur S, You Caused This Mess – Original Cast of ‘Market Basket Cases’ – If there wasn’t an Off-Off-Broadway Musical about the 2014 Market Basket supermarket protests over the firing of Arthur T. Demoulas as CEO, there ought to have been. This would have been the number that ends Act One.

    6. Everyone Does A Great Job (They Really Do) – Mu’umu’u Larry – As clear as his cartoons are opaque.

    7. Proud Young Americans (DJ Crunk El S.a.m.M.i. remix) – Ron Muskmelon Catamount – A remix of one of the Board’s favorite songs. By a patriotically named DJ.

    8. Pin Monkey (live w/monologue) – Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band – One of my favorite songs by the Boss. Great monologue, too. LINK I hope he writes it someday.

    9. I @!&%ing Hate Work, I Want to Keep Drinking- LDB & The Big Green Numbers – Wisdom from poster Lobel’s Drinking Buddy. A post espousing that sentiment earned many +1’s, which on the Legacy Board, would have been inside a green icon.

    10. Hooray For Hollywood – Acres of Pussy – A suggested band name, and a song about making it big in movies. Which could lead to the suggested band name, I suppose.

    11. A Cap Is A Hat In Baseball, Not A Crutch For Pigskin Tycoons – Moby Dhale – Poster Great White Dhale was not much for putting up with any talk about the salary cap in football, for reasons blessedly lost.

    12. Working Man – 2112 Overture – A Rush song about work, by a made-up tribute band.

    13. Hovartis Done Got Samsonitis, So He Can’t Handle Bags No More – BA/BH – Samsonitis is an affliction that affects fake baggage handlers. And people misidentified as being John Dennis.

    14. You Write For PFT? (You’re An Employee) :lol: :lol: – Tha Notorious B.R.I. & The Tattletellers featuring Treach – Regular Brian was neenering Bruce over writing for Patriots Football Today. I know, I know; but it happened. Song modeled after ‘O.P.P.’ by Naughty By Nature, of which Treach is a member. You can hear the sampled piano part now, can’t you?

    Songs of Celebration and Songs of Summer’s Departure;

    15. Fancy – Felgy Aveeno (With Iggy Bouzouki and Charli CHP) –the actual song, by Iggy Azalea w/Charli XCX, Fancy was the big hit of the summer in 2014. Here I have moisturizer addict Mike ‘Felgy Aveeno’ Felger singing lead. Iggy Bouzouki is a callback to Dale Arnold’s ‘Icky balookey’ exclaimation. And maybe it’s supposed to be Charlie CHB, not CHP.

    16. The Boys of Summer –TC Royle – Not only a Don Henley solo hit, ‘the boys of summer’ can also refer to baseball players. Right, Truman C. Royle?

    17. It’s Designed to Break Your Heart – Lady BoSox and the Little Green Monsters – A line from the (in)famous A. Bartlett Giamatti paean to baseball. Lady Gaga’s fans are ‘Little Monsters’ , Lady BoSox (Old Friend BoSox Lady, BKA ‘Cheri’) fans would therefore be Little Green Monsters. At the end of the Red Sox season, Cheri gets to make the Bart Giamatti post on SoSH. It’s one of the unwrittens those people have.

    18. Stuck Truck Blues – Norton Adams & The State Collegians (Live) – It’s not the true end of summer until NASCL* posts about the first Ryder truck containing returning collegians getting wedged under a Storrow Drive overpass. (*- or another poster; we’re not weirdos about it like SoSHers)

    19. Summertime Sadness –Shalise & The Side Hustle – Summer ending also means SMY has to go back to work covering football in earnest. Poo!

    20. Now That You’re Gone – Yodelin’ Larry Lou and the Whisper Campaign – Larry Lucchino in that unconvincing country/western getup with (find name of country singer he’s pictured with at Fenway) had me re-imagining him as a singing cowboy.

    21. Jimmy Buffet Song Supercut – Cheese Steak Incident – Were there a band called ‘Cheese Steak Incident’, I think they would be playing Key West, where town ordinances require Jimmy Buffet cover bands to perform 16 hours a day.

    22. The Autumn Wind – O.co Coliseum Security Holding Area Impromptu Ensemble – Raider Fans spontaneously breaking into this NFL Films soundtrack staple while incarcerated at the stadium for assorted infractions? Why not? (The video of the performance would have been recorded in portrait mode.)

    23. Wake Up – Brightly Painted Cows – Some weirdo used the baffling phrase ‘don’t paint your cows too brightly’, by way of reducing enthusiasm for the Patriots. It stayed with me.

    24. There’s One Good Sunday For Apple Picking, And This One Just Ain’t It – The Postermen – A lovely sentiment!

    25. You Got No Game – VALIS – Actual singer, made up song.

    26. Rubber Room Man (Biding My Time) – Linkin Haus – This was during one of Bert Breer (AKA Lincoln House of Corrections) noticeable absences from the NFL Network. In the NYC Public Schools, teachers legally prevented from interactions with students but unable to be fired due to tenure are kept in ‘rubber rooms’. And Rubberband Man was a hit for The Spinners in 1976.

    27. Proud Young Americans (DJ Speedy Tate remix) – MC Del Gansett – Speed Tate was Joe Gill’s nickname for erstwhile Pats WR Brandon Tate, Narragansett produces a Del’s Lemonade based-shandy for summertime consumption. And PYA needs no further introduction.

    28. Theme from “A Summer Place” – Motorhead – A pleasant instrumental by Percy Faith & his Orchestra, perhaps less so once Lemmy & co. have a whack at it.

    29. Get Back To Work –Tiger Mike (and No Band, I’ll Do It By Myself) – Board favorite Houston TX-based Tiger Oil owner Edward ‘Tiger’ Mike Davis, writer of numerous entertainingly tactless memos, would not need a band to tell you layabouts to get back to work.

    Nothing will be saved. All will be lost. And our new onion-headed sad emoticon is unable to convey the depth of that loss. -10/22/25 (sic) Daily Thread

    Fourth Wall Breakage:

    Long shot probably, but my friend just found out he has to work, so I have an extra (and free!) ticket to Japandroids and Craig Finn at the Bowery Monday.

    Five or six Gansett tall boys at the Tam beforehand optional (for you… mandatory for me).

    Gave the new Queens of the Stone Age two listens.  Disappointed. Was reluctant to go to midweek October show at Red Rocks, that sealed the deal.

    LCD Soundsystem should have remained broken up.

    New Deer Tick record good on the first listen.

    New Foo Fighters has a couple of ass kickers on it.  Huge sound, they used some producer that worked with Adele and who ever else.
