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

Songs played:

Liz Phair - "6'1""
The Who - "Miles and Miles"
Suzanne Vega - "99°F"
Prince - "1000 Light Years from Here"
