Falling over Jennifer Lawrence…a very special playlist

I love Jennifer Lawrence so much I can barely stand it.

Not only is she a first-rate actor, she’s got a special knack for something that I too excel at; falling.

The difference between she and I is that I don’t wear high-heels and I haven’t fallen TWO YEARS IN  A ROW at the Academy Awards.

Last year Lawrence tripped while headed up to collect her best actress statue for “Silver Linings Playbook.”

She laughed at herself. It was awesome.

This year she fell upon exiting her limo at the red carpet.

She laughed at herself. It was awesome.

Keep on acting, keep on falling and keep on laughing, Jennifer.

In honor of Ms. Lawrence’s inability to stay on her feet while millions of people are watching, I’ve made a very special playlist of 11 specially selected songs that, well, are pretty much about falling.
