Lyrics in 2022: “And I took that personally…”

On Day 5 of Celia’s 5 Days of List-mas, I played songs with lyrics that were so moving, so soothing, so infuriating, so very ME RIGHT NOW upon receiving them in 2022, that I needed to save them and organize them for this #ThematicStatic hour… as if an audio journal entry I can revisit and remember how the year felt. Hooray for the songwriters who seemingly look and then sing right into the listener, amiright?

Listen (👇🏼) to the archived December 22 #ThematicStatic and hit us up with future requests for shows that will air on Thursday mornings, 9-10am CST, then again on Sundays from 8-9am on WNXP.
