PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO BITTERNESS” (3.23.19)

23 Mar

Generally it takes 12 muscles to smile and 11 muscles to frown. But the 25 songs I played don’t even begin to capture the complexity, the intensity, the subtleties,  and the diversity of bitterness. If I left out your favorite, don’t be bitter. I only have two hours. But, at least I did prove that even Canadians can be bitter.
