A Fool’s Playlist: Songs to Get You Through April Fools’ Day
Every April 1st people around the globe become a little more cautious of their surroundings, a little more hesitant to accept “gifts,” and a little extra mischievous. Whether they are planning an elaborate hoax on co-workers, tricking their classmates, or trying to have some good-humored fun with their loved ones, no one wants to end up an “April Fool” on April Fools’ Day.
We could have “Rick Rolled” the whole list as our joke on you (and we thought about it!) but instead we decided to give you a list of some of our favorite “Fool” themed tunes. Whether you use them to provide inspiration for your joke planning, or to console yourself after you’ve been pranked, here’s a list of ten songs (plus a bonus *wink*) for your learning pleasure.
