The _____

(aired 10/21/11)


All songs for this episode share a similarity: each title is two words, the first of which is “The.” These singular nouns cover a wide range of topics, some loosely grouped into particular categories (as I identify during the show). Thanks for the song suggestions. Now you can truly enjoy The Music!
