Katie Schorr: "I Was Thinking I Could Clean Up For Christmas" (Aimee Mann). There's a moment (or an hour, or maybe 72 hours) during the holidays when listening to "Let It Snow" does not properly align with where one's soul is at. This is a perfect, melancholy song for that kind of moment. To me, this song's about feeling stuck and in between worlds, which is how often I feel right before the New Year. Let the hypnotic Mann chords wash over you, contemplate how everything sucks and then go suck on a peppermint candy cane. Happy Christmas!
