'Happy New Year': Almost Certainly My Last Playlist of 2012

12/31/2012 02:41 am ET | Updated Mar 02, 2013

To quote Oscar Wilde, "Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account." Thanks, Uncle Oscar, for the excellent literary excuse to resolve pretty much nothing. So rather than offer any grand resolutions that won't clear or share my ignorant perspective on life on the Fiscal Cliff, here's an eclectic playlist for this New Year's Eve. I've included some suggestions from the good people --http://www.twitter.com/Wildaboutmusic and the occasional hot spambot -- who follow me on Twitter at. So happy New Year to Kim, Kanye and all the other men and women in the extended dysfunctiona family of man.
