Hello, partygoers! Welcome back to the rumpus room! This week we are deep in self-isolation and social distancing so Mary and her dad sadly couldn’t see each other this bi-week, but spoke over goold old Skype instead. (We apologize for any resulting sound issues.)

Here at the Listening Party, we know there is some anxiety out there; we know that some folks are stuck at home or working with the risk of infection; we know everyone out there needs something to take their minds off these troubling times. So we thought: NOVELTY SONGS!!! What partygoers want to hear are NOVELTY SONGS!!! What better way to soothe our worries, ease our minds and bring some colour back into this grey, grey world than with NOVELTY SONGS!!!

So, without further ado, we present Sneaky Dragon Listening Party’s NOVELTY SONG MIX 2!!! Featuring:
