“Music for the Occasion!” by Richard F. Yates

April 11, 2012

Miraculously, this year Easter Sunday was actually a nice, sunny day. To celebrate, I drug a couple hunks of cardboard, some paints, and a large quantity of DJ equipment (strictly for advertising purposes, of course) into the backyard and played some righteous tunes. True, we had family over, and there were obligations that I admirably shirked, but the most essential aspect of this particular Easter was the music. Here, for no other reason than “I can” is the playlist for my adventures that day. If you don’t know any of these songs, look them up. With the simplicity of electronic search engines, you really have no excuse, and all of these songs are awesome!
