Be like the shark.
Okay, so, a couple of hiccups. I would like to note the following amends:
Algonad: I already had that song in my library, so while looking for the ones I didn't have, I told myself I'd throw that one in later. Never did. Sorry.
Zack: I originally couldn't find that Eskimeaux track and was going to get back to it, but never followed up. The Speedy Ortiz track was the last song to be cut, so if it's not too uncool, I'm just going to reintroduce that one.
Whoever's supplemental tracks I ended up cutting (still haven't checked who submitted what again): I debated between just adding the previously noted tracks, or to keep true to the original 90 minute idea. I came down on the latter.
Should you feel like it, I've added a ratings bar to this post. Let us know what you think of this years mix (and if you're saucy enough, tell us why below).

I've created a revised Spotify playlist (I also couldn't find the Vinny Cha$e song), however I can't figure out a way to get it to play in order (again, song order was heavily considered). In that case, one could conceivably
