It’s a most wonderful time of the year for killer earwormy songs. In fact, all year we’ve been blessed with some wonderful tunes and introductions to new artists. A collective pat on the back is due, I think?
From me, thank you to my predecessors Tin, Maki, bishbosh and Zalamanda, for their help and support - each of whom brought unique and special gifts and wonderful and imaginative playlists that I couldn’t hope to match. Special thanks to TinyTin for putting all the songs into the box, and everyone who sent in worms during the year and for this festive edition.
Earworms will be back on JANUARY 7TH with your new wormwrangler, wilemena, in the hot seat. I’ve enjoyed my tenure as the earworms curator for the last six months. It’s been fun, and I’d like to thank you all for your contributions and for tolerating my experiments.
Wishing each of you all the very best wishes of the season, a wonderful Christmas and a very happy and prosperous 2013.
I am not going to add the download links for this festive playlist as it’s so large, so you’ll have to fish them out of the box. Grab your favourite beverage, pull up a wood-burner and enjoy this wonderful selection of new and traditional festive songs.
What You Said…(Right Click – A page for each playlist.)
This first playlist is winter-oriented and frosty. You’ll need your puffy coat and mittens.
This one is a little more raucous in places and will help you warm up again as you bounce up and down a bit.
This final one contains some reflective songs, perfect to sit by the fire, sip eggnog and ponder on the year gone, and the one ahead.
A big Thank You to everyone who contributed worms to this special holiday playlist or has sent them in to the wormbank. Please send your juiciest worms plus a line or two per song on how you got hooked to either firstname.lastname@example.org or a wormhole near you. Thank you.
