Your favorite poster’s favorite poster (that they have on notifications-only mute)

You all raised over $300 to feed hungry people hurt by the pandemic. I know it wasn't an easy time to give—everyone I know's pockets are looking a little thin these days, and lots of mutual aid is happening on here as well, which I appreciate.

Thank you for tolerating my self-promotion and I hope you enjoy these playlists; scroll back and enjoy each one knowing that they were created for lovely charitable donations.

So the main stopper to making @sexybenfranklin's donor playlist was that a lot of my favorite heavy covers (iron maiden doing jethro tull, snowden doing the zombies) are like only in my itunes and nowhere else apparently

but here's my favorite pun title of this whole thing:

LEAD BLANKET: Heavy Covers

i have just been dealt 2d12 psychic damage by the video of pete buttigieg playing "The Way We Get By" by Spoon on piano

@sexybenfranklin finishing up your playlist, want to put this on it but it's not on streaming services so enjoy it as a bonus cut youtube.com/watch?v=7Eeg6v60lL

ok, this one was actually easy, 'cause i could just dip into my wedding reception dinner playlist, lol

@Aleums the song I immediately thought of was "Never Been Any Reason" by head east which a, fucking rules, and b, is one of the most coked-up coke songs ever

after a short hiatus of childcare, here the last few playlists from Friday's donors!

@Aleums gave me quite a challenge by looking for something extremely specific: songs with harmonies and choruses where the band drops out near the end…

I think I did OK? A lot of freshman-year-of-college indie here on THE THREE VOICE PROBLEM
