12 Days of Seasonal Earworms You Need Right Now (Day 8)

I have to thank my friend Sarah Warburton for this one, because I hadn’t heard it before she shared it with me. And now I love it. Its catchy little self is running through both our heads.

In other news, I have one straggler essay left to grade before I can begin to tackle the trillion administrative tasks that have been put on hold until I could get my papers graded, and then once those are done, I’ll get a little time off, which I really need, wheee!

(Though, let’s be honest, I’m still going to be writing, because there aren’t any days off from being an author when you also have a day job that’s something else. And I cannot wait to get back to the writing! Edits of my next book, the second in the Animal Affinities series, are on the docket, so fans of Finis., rejoice! The next one is finally on the horizon. More details on that soon.)

The other day David posted Motörhead’s version of this song on his blog — which is awesome, by the way — but this rendition was already on my list for this year. In high school my friend Patricia and I were unabashedly ridiculous Bryan Adams fans. His music was so ubiquitous in that era, and we loved it. I still enjoy listening to it now and then, although I’m more likely to have the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Ani diFranco or Hamilton in the kind of heavy rotation Bryan Adams saw back in the day. Anyway, enough about that. This song is super fun.

Enjoy!

Okay, I get it. Not everyone loves the holidays. Not everyone enjoys hanging out with their family. In fact, some people cannot even with the holidays because they’ve successfully managed to more or less escape the pandemonium and strife of the families they came from, and having to go back during the holidays is stressful.

Friends, I see you — and your relative nightmare. This mildly inappropriate earworm is for you.

Okay, I have to include this new Christmas song this year because it’s by Wrabel, and I have a special fondness for Wrabel’s music because when he was in tenth grade, he was in my English class.

So, shout out to you, Wrabel. Your English II teacher is proud of you and really happy about the art you’re putting out into the world. “11 Blocks” is still in heavy rotation on my playlist. Happy holidays, kiddo. Good job.  🙂
