Happy Mixtape Monday, everyone!
So, last week featured a tiny bit of our innocently riling up The Joker in celebration of his 80th anniversary! He was, however, ahem… less than 100% happy about it, and judging by how fast our party decorations went 'splodey, 'splodey, kaboom, last week’s playlist obviously didn’t go over very well! We know, we know… boy, did we do it this time! But although a little rattled, we’re no worse for the wear, and thanks to you, we have a set of songs perfect for helping us regain our minds, our composure, and, for a few of us, our memory of the rest of last night’s events!
