TDF Special - The February Playlist

The Hardest Working Man in Show Business

Whew! It's hard to believe February has come and gone so quickly! And even harder to believe that I managed to scrape together 29 TDF's (which was a lot of fun for me, actually).

Towards the end of January, I had been playing around with quotations or inspirational/sarcastic/ironic allusions, but quickly found that I was running out of material for each post. In one late-January TDF, I had taken a quote from the Jefferson Airplane song "White Rabbit," so as February 1 rolled around, I decided to link the quote to a song - Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" - and there it went.

Sometimes there was a clear [or not so clear] double entendre in either the song-choice, the lyrics, or the photo ... or all three. Sometimes (like today), it's just what I hope you'll think is a fun song. Mostly it's 60s, 70s and early 80s - yes, I'm dating myself - and mostly songs you probably know, but probably don't hear everyday (with a few exceptions, I'm sure).

In any event, I hope you've enjoyed the musical accompaniment as you peruse TDF, and I thought I'd list them for you for your further amusement. Check out the February playlist after The Jump!

Did you have a favorite? Mine was probably James Brown's I Feel Good after we beat UGA, though I got a huge chuckle out of Man of Constant Sorrow and Why Do You Build Me Up, Buttercup?, and had totally forgotten what a rocker Jackson Browne was.
