A few times a year, our family will have a  sing-a-long night ; this is were we take turns at finding old songs that we love on YouTube and play them really loud. We laugh, sing and sometimes dance as a family. We've been doing this for several years now and they truly are some of our greatest family moments. (Honestly, it was my mother who started this tradition. She would play her favorite 50's songs loud and we would dance together. I remember us doing the Mash-Potato and the Twist,  and laughing for hours. Really amazing memories!)   A few weeks back, I thought that it would be great if I had a place I could go to that with all of my favorite videos already saved-up; and so,  MARSHA'S PLAYLIST   was born. Now it's even easier for me to enjoy my faves anytime, anywhere---straight
