"Broken" Songs

Seeing as I recently broke my ankle and am currently hobbling around everywhere I go, it only makes sense that I should incorporate that fact into my music blog at some point. Since I've done a "Heartbreak Songs" post in the past, and have included my fair share of other songs with "Broken" in their titles in various posts, I challenged myself to find "Broken" songs that didn't have much to do with hearts and ones that I'd never posted previously. And by jove, I do believe I was successful. Enjoy!  ~  "Hopalong"

Songs About Tea

Yesterday I did a post featuring Songs About Coffee. Shortly after posting it, I got a call from Tea demanding equal time, its claim backed up by the fact that its popularity as a preferred beverage is worldwide, whereas coffee tends to be popular in only certain regions of the world.
