This playlist is long overdue, and for that I apologize. I realize y'all have been songless for the past two months, but the wait is over (I like to imagine there's a ton of y'all out there eagerly awaiting my seasonal compilations with anticipation). Here's a soundtrack to help you get through all of the broken New Year's resolutions, all of the winter chills and all of the economy-related stress.
Sealed and approved by yours truly:
1. "Girl Next Door" by Darin - Get past the "Just Dance" rip-off and imagine the whole thing choregraphed at a senior prom in a number that would make HSM3 look like a cheesy theme park attraction. Listen HERE.
