Remote Control Songs, Vol. 1: “Stop” & “Play"

Here begins a new 3-part series featuring songs with words commonly found on a TV, VCR, DVD, or BluRay remote control in their titles. First up, "Stop" and "Play" Songs. Next time, "Fast Forward" and "Pause" Songs. And because, apparently, it's such a common theme in popular songwriting, "Rewind" Songs will get their very own post. Ready...set...enjoy!  ~  JH
