Someone came up with the phrase “guilty as sin.” Might as well say, “holy as sainthood” or “slippery as an oiled, squirmy thing you try to hold with hands soaked in lotion for weeks with your eyes closed in air filled with whatever the air equivalent of Novocaine is.” That is, welcome to the Department of Redundancy Department. What does that have to do with this week’s theme? Simply this: we are guilty as sin. So might as well play two hours of music about being sorry and tossing off apologies (or not). So that means Brenda Lee and Ben Vaughn, but also Donald Sterling, Dylan, the Decemberists. And more. We’ve got a lot of apologizing to do.
