Although we are ever the pranksters, we haven’t (successfully) pulled a prank on anyone since the halcyon high school days of crank calls or shaving cream on our sleeping sister’s palm. Playing the fool is for children and those without daily responsibilities like paying bills and living life.

But, just like you, that doesn’t mean we want to fall into the boring classification of those who can’t have a little innocent fun on April Fool’s Day. Our version of fun involves creating a Top Twenty list of some of our favorite modern songs sung by artists like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jewel[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adele[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Buble[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Shakira[/lastfm] about…acting the fool.

Because even though we say we are too grown up to do foolish things, we all know that can’t always be true.
