Is this playlist safe for work?



So the common themes here are that a lot of this music has been called "post-" something or other, and most all of the songs seem to me to have a nostalgic feel for one reason or another. Or, to borrow a phrase from F.X. Feeney, I feel like there's something in each of these songs that "either plays to your memory or plays to your hope." Fifteen delightfully painful tracks, plus as a bonus a sixteenth holiday number which is postalgic in its own right.
