Comment:

The subtheme of this mix is in the second song: "It's getting better all the time (can't get no worse!)."

So there's some party time stuff, both benign and wild; some funny tracks (I dare you to listen to "Bloody" with a straight face); and some contemplative stuff. There's not a lot of deep digging (outside of the Tom Waits/John Lurie track and maybe "Amen Brother," which features what must be the most sampled drum break in the prehistory of hiphop), just some really fun listening. Just right for early spring.
