‘Tis the season to be jolly, but today’s R10 starts melancholy, waxing nostalgically with the lush yet lugubrious lyrics of eighties icons Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal. But have no fear, my fine friends, ‘cause our jukebox rocks off and away with our second-place shot from everyone’s second-favorite punk band, Stiff Little Fingers, followed by a double shot of Van Halen before it evens out with jangly gems by Big Star and R.E.M., and then... well, hell, y’all can read, so I’ll let you see for yourselves. Have a rockin’ Xmas, & party on, dudes!
