Today is February 28th. If it were a leap year, tomorrow would be February 29th. But we just had a leap year in 2012, so tomorrow is March 1st.

I've always wondered when people born on leap day celebrate their birthday during non-leap years. Do they celebrate it on the 28th, or the 1st, or do they skip it altogether? I'd be kinda bummed if I was born on the 28th and missed being born on leap day. Because when February 29th does roll around every four years It'd be a blowout birthday party, I just know it!

For this playlist I thought I would put together a list of songs by artists who were born on February 28th.

Happy Birthday! You're special too, leap day or no leap day.
