Playlist for Sunday, May 20, 2018: Pomp For Two

I like Pomp. I'm not too sure about Circumstance, but Pomp really gets me. And there is a helluva lot of Pomp about to happen across the pond. Carriages. Epaulets. Lace. Tiaras. Dangerously tilted chapeaux (to x or to s, that is the question). Gloves on guys. That sorta thing gets me...here. But it took a fan/mentor to remind me that all that filagreed fluff was happening THIS SATURDAY! Meghan and Harry's big Do only days away, and why wasn't I celebrating this Royal Wedding on air? Well, tear up that old fogey of a playlist and attempt to get with the times!

Duets! Weddings! Sex! Ascot Gavottes (that's where those dangerous hats come in)! Some distractions (Dolores Finkelstein, remember her?)! And of course me, souping it all up into some sort of deliberate package. Which is debatable, but hey! Throw some rice (not done anymore, right?), tie some shoes (what?) on the bumper (what?) of a car, dust off your epaulets and tiaras (no problem there!), toss down some champagne (always) and celebrate Pomp.
