Mix Tape #41 - Lunch Will Keep Us Together

Well hey there! This turned out really well. I hope you like it as much as I did.

Neil Sedaka has a delightful new children's album and that's where the name of this mix came from. It also features "Where the Toys Are" and "Waking Up Is Hard To Do." It does not feature this [super fucking creepy] song.

What else, what else?

- Oh. Thanks, Ben, for lending me this which is awesome. Congratulations on your nuptuals!

- Look, I'm not goofing around with that Neulander. It's my favorite Eurotrash album ever and I listened to that song in a loop while driving around aimlessly one very sad day in Cincinnati last year.

- That Red Sovine song is endearingly racist. I bet he was hell at family gatherings.

- "Strip Club" is my favorite cover. Ever.

- I'm sort of suddenly obsessed with Teddy Parker and...OMFG WATCH THIS:
