13 Lucky Songs For Friday The 13th

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.
