Coffee Break: Footwear

JD McPherson, 'Socks'
JD McPherson, 'Socks: A Christmas Album' (New West Records)

Listen up. It's National Sock Day. We just played an in-studio with JD McPherson where he played songs off his new record SOCKS. And we just learned that George H.W. Bush had socks for every occasion, even his funeral.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that mention socks or any kind of footwear?
