The Election Special, 2018

Election day is one week away. Here in Washington, we do all mail-in ballots, so my ballot is already filled out. I’m not going to go into great detail here, but if you can vote then you should do so. That’s basically all I’m writing this time, but also… here’s an extra playlist! New music, old music, longtime favorites, political songs, angry and cynical songs, and determined and positive songs. I’ll just let the music do the talking. Enjoy!
