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:

XTC "The Mayor of Simpleton"

Lyle Lovett with Randy Newman "Long Tall Texan"

Suzanne Vega "99.9 F°"

Edwin Starr "Twenty Five Miles"

Heather Eatman "Spoonful"
