Ah February. The month of love. The month of whiskey. A little of both are required to make it through this thing. You know what is also required to make it through the month of February? HANDCLAPS. That's right. Songs featuring hand-claps are somewhat sacred in this house, so in an effort to call a preemptive strike on February, may I present to you the first Scout mix tape ever. Especially designed for kicking the February darkness and self-loathing to the curb. I dare you to watch this and not smile. Now get clapping.
