Playlist for Sunday, August 7, 2016: All The Pretty Colors!

A 5 year old got into my brain and concocted a playlist. Colors! Happy!  It must be all the popsicles, sand in my shoes, and lake water in my ears. Ahh well, even cheesey themes can make for interesting juxtapositions. Blue, next to Green. That kind of thing. No, really, it'll be a LOT more fun than that. I mean, it's Broadway, right? Fred Astaire meets Liza meets Goldfinger meets Rudy Vallee meets Marilyn. What a party that would be!

New to 2 On The Aisle: Spring Awakening. A 19th Century play, musicalized with rock music...But don't drop your Pimm's. We'll surround it with classics, so you won't miss a "beat" or a swig or a hammock swing. Just keep one foot on the ground.  :)
