Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve looked at songs about clothing and shoes, and now I turn my attention to hair (and to a lesser extent, hats). The simple act of a haircut can drastically change an appearance, as can the wearing of a hat, of course. /Tuesday Ten/432 /The World Was A Mess […]
Just over two years ago, I asked for suggestions around songs involving the senses. Needless to say, this ended up being a gargantuan thread, with the easy decision made to split it out.
