PLAYLIST FOR “EMBARRASSING SITUATIONS” (9.13.14)

14 Sep

Life is long and more than enough of it is filled with embarrassing situations. It seems to me the least I can do is recognize those situations and totally exploit them by creating an hour of songs about embarrassing moments. Cheating and getting caught? A double embarrassment. Forgetting your keys? That cuts a little too close to home. But worse: forgetting your lyrics. I left that embarrassment for Sinatra and Judy. What? You were expecting empathy? Do I look like Dr. Oz?
