So It’s Come To This: Songs of 2005

| Radio

2005 was a year of resignation for many of us. It was a time to turn away from politics and get on with whatever we found important in life. There was a resurgence of love songs. Others pondered the bigger questions of life, the universe, and everything. For me, 2005 was definitely a drop-out year. I spent the whole month of May just hanging out, talking about music and shrooms and the spiritual energy of plants…  I crocheted an afghan and harvested herbs.  That kind of year.

As always, not all the songs below are from 2005, but a lot of them are.
