I am one of those rare people who do not mind getting older. This being said, 33 is an odd number and the number I am turning this weekend. 33. 32 made sense to me and I will embrace 34, but 33, you do not seem real to me. I cannot explain it. I have tried and fallen short.
Instead, to lift my spirits I curated my own birthday mix. 33 songs to grapple with a new year, embrace change, and, of course, dance to. On my birthday weekend, my gift to you is this eclectic mix. Where else can you find Connie Francis, The Buzzcocks, Del The Funky Homosapien, Le Tigre, and Otis Redding? Welcome to a glimpse into my world and how to take an odd little birthday, like the number 33, head on with music and gusto.
