Remember Casey Kasem and his song dedications that went out over the airwaves every weekend? Oh, man, I loved all the possibilities that involved. Would my name pop up in the local dedications? Should I phone one in? On top of that, I love the idea that a certain song, carefully selected, could be exactly suited to someone's sentiments and current mood. (I feel the same way about books, too, remember?)
In that spirit, here are a few songs that you might like to add to your playlist for this upcoming President's Day weekend.

For road trips, harmonizing, and longing to learn to play the guitar:
For during a soulful solo walk (or for gazing out the window of a train/plane/car)
For if your weekend doesn't go as planned and you need to wallow:
For dancing in the kitchen with your darlin':
For while you make dinner, do the dishes, make the bed:
Do you have songs you love for certain situations? And did you ever call in a song dedication to your local radio?
