It's Weights and Measures Day. On this day in 1875 nations around the world agreed on various standards of measurement. We'll mark the occasion with songs that mention miles, pounds, volts or whatever else comes to mind. We'll calibrate a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Howlin' Wolf "300 Pounds of Joy"

The Kinks "A Gallon of Gas"

Rosanne Cash "50,000 Watts"

Arlo Guthrie "Coming ino Los Angeles"

Jefferson Airplane "3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds"
