"Joy In Woodville": THE WEEKEND MIX
I've been running a vinyl group on Facebook for 18 months. It's a success, and members, who have a dozen or more opportunities a day to purchase records and interact with each other, have become like family. But of course, there is the occasional pill who can ruin things for all involved. Like the guy who for 18 months has never liked a post, or purchased an album, or made any comment of any kind, but found a minute to show off a picture of an album on my want list and offered the bratty comment, "I have it but I'm not selling it." As my grandfather used to say in situations like this, "Some people, I'll tell ya."
"Joy Week," here in our little town of Woodville, got off to a rocky start and then got rockier. Some people, I'll tell ya.
Well, it's Friday, and I'll end "Joy Week" with 15 more songs that never fail to make me feel good. And for the trolls, that's 15 more opportunities for you to take a shit and run.
For the rest of you fine people, I hope you dig the mix. Much of it is obvious, but that's okay. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Plus, not one of these songs ever gets old for me.
Remember, it's supposed to be joyful.
