    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.

    Memorial Day Mixtapes Explained continues

    2015 Disc One – Songs That Build Up America

    • The Star Spangled Banner – Jimi Hendrix/Whitney Houston (DJ Crunk El S.a.m.M.i. remix) – A combination of arguably the two most famous versions of the National Anthem, thanks to remix culture.

    • Proud Young Americans – Lee Greenwood – Lee loves the Muskmelon.

    • The Pilgrims Should Have Landed On a Bigger Rock (Plimoth’s Lament) – Rickard & Gregor – A song for everyone who’s visited Plymouth on a school field trip or other occasion and peered down at that hallowed piece of American history and thought or said, ‘That’s it?’, by old friends and Ren Faire stalwarts the duo of Rickard & Gregor.

    • Born on the 2nd of July – Barry Pedantic – A song for the tiresome ‘Well ACKSHUALLY, the Second Continental Congress adopted the resolution for independence from Great Britain on the second, not the fourth of July, 1776.’ types out there. ‘Barry’, sounding a bit like ‘very.’

    • The Iroquois Confederacy Influenced the Constitution (New York State & I know this to be so) – Aggressive Zero – Some question begging going on here, and a throwaway poster description that became a great band name.

    • Four Quarters Makes a Whole, and We’re Wholly Against Quartering (The 3rd Amendment Song) – Schoolhouse Rock! : Rarities and B Sides – Posits that there were unreleased Schoolhouse Rock! Episodes made, and enough of them to be later compiled into an album.

    • Cotton Gin? Blecch; I’d Rather Have A Fribble – Brian and The Uncles of Invention – Frank Zappa’s band was The Mothers of Invention. Eli Whitney was an inventor. Cotton gin is not a drink. A Fribble is. I think that’s how you have to look at it.

    • James K. Polk ( link )– They Might Be Giants –Actual band and song. No doubt Smilin’ Joe Hesketh approved.

    • Tubmania Overture – Harriet! The Original Broadway Cast Recording – Who’s to say in this age of Hamilton that there wouldn’t be a Harriet Tubman-centered musical?

    • Battle Hymn of the Republic – Grand Army of the Potomac Observation Balloon Corps ‘The Soaring Falcons’ Veterans & Ladies Auxiliary – This would have had to have been a very early Edison reel recording of some older Civil War veterans. And ‘Falcon’ was of course the name of Board Favorite ‘Balloon Boy’.

    • March of the Pinkertons (We Never Sleep) – Father Jones – The Pinkerton Detective Agency (motto: We Never Sleep) was often brought in as strike-breakers during disputes with unions, here they get a folk song in their honor for a change. Father Jones alludes to the, decidedly pro-labor magazine Mother Jones, a favorite of Ozzy. Probably.

    • In 50 Years Some Limey Wankers Will Steal This Song Blues – Turkeypie Jefferson – In March of 2015, drove past a roadside restaurant advertising ‘Turkey Pie’, though that would be a great blues singer name. In this case, one who can see into the future.

    • It’s Good We Didn’t Kill All The Indians (They’re Good At Working The High Steel) – Nat Plutocrat and His Spatted Fat Cats – A disproportionate number of Mohawks, Iroquois and other Native Americans worked as ironworkers constructing NYC skyscrapers from the 1930’s on.

    • Ballad of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps – Surgeon General’s Honor Cadre Band – You may think that the U.S. Surgeon General does not have an Honor Cadre. You would be wrong.

    • TVA – Seventeen Man Rural Electrification Band – Government inefficiency swells the numbers of this group well past that of the Five Man Electric Band (Signs), the Tennessee Valley Authority being a federally owned corporation set up in 1933 to assist an area particularly hard-hit by the Great Depression.

    • Battleship USS Arizona Memorial Plaque – Mike Brady (spoken word) – Dammit Bobby, you take that foolish hat off. 1,177 men died here. Show some respect.

    • U.S.A. R.O.C.K. is A-O.K. for U & Me from AK to ME – Ron Catamount Muskmelon – So. Many. Capital. Letters.

    • I Like Lands That Are Great – Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga – A patriotic take on the SNL Tony Bennett Show theme. Mr. Bennett & Miss ‘Ga have, of course, collaborated in real life.

    2. 33 Innings -Toad Thrubber –‘Toed the rubber’ a baseball term for pitching, 33 innings being the length of the famous Pawtucket Red Sox/Rochester Red Wings longest game in professional baseball, which took place at McCoy Stadium in April 1981.

    14. Underground Hit – The Indie Darlings – Very meta.

    15. Down On Me – Big Brother’s Department of Health and Human Services – An actual Janis Joplin and Big Brother and the Holding Company song.

    16. Don’t Do It – Nursinghome Disasterplan –Strange WEEI targeted ad by ARS gives us the group name, and a song by The Band.

    17. Sorree, You Can’t Always Get What You Want. Fact; Not Opinion – The Trolling Stones – (cough)

    18. Trampled Underfoot -The Bad Clams – More Led Zep, and another Xxx Xxxxx-inspired band.

    19. Give It To Me- Vinnie Falcone Ensemble (with Peter Wolf & TD Garden organist Ron Poster) A J. Geils Band tune, Vinnie Falcone is the bandleader Paul Anka threatens to bring in to shake up his stupid band. Where’s Joe?

    Saw the Zombies at City Winery last night. So freaking good, bunch of classics, a couple of Argent tunes. For guys in their 70s they rock.

    Awesome room too. I’ll be back
