Written by Music


It’s almost noon (eastern standard time), the streamers streamed, the fireworks worked (with fire!), and the punch is, egad, still punching. Here then is an impromptu mini-mixtape to commiserate with you. Liberties were taken with context for some of these songs, specifically because the titles just SCREAMED inclusion, but liberties were taken with you last night as well. You just don’t know it yet.

…And we have pictures to prove it!
