Monthly Mix #12: February 2016

Now you can listen to a year's worth of monthly playlists.  That's 120 songs hand-selected by me.  Do it.

February 2016:
Picks up right where January left off.

1. Ozomatli - "Super Bowl Sundae"
I heard there's some football game this month.

2. The Postal Service - "Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)"
TPS covered this Phil Collins number for the Wicker Park soundtrack.  Still haven't seen the movie.

3. Jermaine Jackson - "Let's Get Serious"
Seriously funky.  Stevie Wonder produced, co-wrote, and performed on this one.

4. Dr. Dog - "Good Grief"
New Dr. Dog album is out.

5. Bob Marley & the Wailers - "Waiting in Vain"
Bob would've turned 71 this month.  I like how the line "In life I know there's lots of grief" kinda hearkens back to the Dr. Dog track.

6. Grace Potter - "Something That I Want"
This is also from the soundtrack to a film I've never seen.

7. Hey Anna - "If You're Wondering"
I don't think I believe you, Anna.

8. Pop Etc - "What Am I Becoming?"
Chris Chu gets a lot heavier on this number from Souvenir.

9. The Cure - "Pictures of You"
"Disintegration is the best album ever!" yelled Kyle to Robert Smith way back in South Park's first season.  While it's not the best ever, it's pretty amazing when you get to that point in life when you totally realize why he said that.

10. Rayland Baxter - "Freakin Me Out"
With Baxter going solo on the Soho EP, this song takes on a further level of introspection as compared to its full-band album version.
