ThemeLounge #72 – Way

Weigh Station

Sheesh, we thanked you for your patience the last time we posted a new show – so what do we say this time?! I guess there’s just nothing to say at this point except we’re sorry again and we’ll try real hard to do better with the next one. So hey, this is the Way show, and aside from being ridiculously late it’s a pretty good one. Good music here from The Meters, Tift Merritt, Nirvana, U2 and more.

And as we leave the Way behind us and look ahead to show #73, the word-pairing madness continues as we take things way…Down. So if you know some awesome Down songs, as well as what theme should perhaps follow Down, we want you to let us know!
