Happy Friday the 13th, everyone. Unlike most Fridays, this one has gone pretty smoothly here at Rocks Off HQ, which means we must be in for a hellacious Monday. But hey, that's next week.
Our luck may be holding up - for now - but we couldn't let the occasion go by unremarked (plus a couple of blogs we had planned for today fell through), so we put together a list of some of our favorite songs that touch on the occasion in one way or another.
