Playlist for Sunday, Feb. 15, 2015: Not Your Average Valentine!

 Last Valentines Day?  Yup, I did the prerequisite hour of love songs...all the big Rodgers and Hammerstein ballads, the Lerner and Loewes, the "don't throw bouquets at me's," the "if I loved you's," the stuff you have to see your dentist right after (because of the sugar and all)....and it was pretty dang sappy.  I'm just not that type a gal, okay?  I've always preferred the acerbic anti-love character song...the "No Way Are You Gettin' Away With That" tune, the "Never Wear that Purple Tie Again, if You Want to Live" anthem, the "You're Nuts if You Think I'm in..." love song.  So that's what we're doing, 2 hours of Anti-Valentines Day Songs on 2 on the Aisle!

We've got stuff from musicals....like The Pajama Game, Promises Promises, Goldilocks (3 from that one!  Banner!), and Hello Dolly! Solo stuff from Darin, Lee, Day, Sinatra, Bennett...and even some Harry James.  Everybody recorded this stuff, so I am evidently not alone in my regard for it....Just wait til you hear Audra get all outta sorts with "Down with Love!"  And you thought I was bitter!?

Which leads me to my last point: Don't read in.  Not everything a DJ plays has extra special meaning, okay?  I mean, that's what my therapist said, anyway.
