I was feeling too lazy to come up with a theme for this week until I suddenly realized that I…well, I’m sure you’re way ahead of me now so I’ll stop there.  Below is the playlist of the laziest songs, laziest excuses, and laziest fantasies I could squeeze into two hours, though I’m sure you’ll agree that lazy is definitely not a word that applies to any of the singers and musicians.
