Is there anything more frustrating than a zipper that won't zip? Despite the occasional aggravation, the zipper has become ubiquitous in the 100 years since it was invented on this date in 1913. We'd like to celebrate the zipper today on WFUV, but how? We don't know of many zipper songs, so let's have your favorite "up" and "down" songs. Leave your suggestions in the comments below along with your first name and town and we'll spin a set this morning.
UPDATE: Don't restrict yourself to "up" and "down" songs. Let your imagination run wild in coming up with zipper songs.
Here's what we played:
Rita Hayworth "Zip"
Johnny Mercer & the Pied Pipers "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah"
Talking Heads "Pulled Up"
Squirrel Nut Zippers "Hell"
