Radio 62, side A, track 1: “Yesterday Girl” by The Smithereens

The Smithereens - Yesterday GirlOh, The Smithereens, it’s New Year’s Eve, arguably my favorite time of year, when I look back on all that’s happened over the last year and think about the year ahead.  This is one of those times where the track that came up was pretty serendipitous, an awesome song by you that includes lyrics like “I don’t think about tomorrow, I just live for today”.  And it’s the start of a brand new tape right as a new year comes around.  And it’s a song about not worrying about yesterday.  I don’t know what any of it means, The Smithereens, but it seems like it should mean something.  But unlike many other New Year’s Eves, I’m just not feeling like taking a big dip in the nostalgia pool this time out, or pontificating on what’s in store for us in 2016.  But I’m glad you were here to help us say goodbye to 2015 and be all like “that’s so yesterday”.  Which is what we’ll say tomorrow.
