One, One, One, One, Two…

This is not the first time we've revealed ourselves to be a bit nutty for numbers in a calendar date. We missed the chance to post on 11/11/11 so we're taking advantage of today's cool date. A word of warning, loyal readers: 12/12/12 falls on a play list Wednesday this year so be prepared to hear some of these songs again in December. Here are twelve songs for 1/11/12:
