Monthly Obsessions – August 2021

Welcome back! This month’s playlist kicks off with something fun and ridiculous. The movie Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga follows a fictional duo (the titular Fire Saga) trying to win the Eurovision Song Contest. They participate in a “Song-A-Long” (singalong) stuffed full of cameos from previous Eurovision winners. It’s such a joyous song and I listen to it when I need a pick-me-up.

As I mentioned in my previous post about my “monthly obsessions,” some songs on these playlists are the result of other posts I wrote. See “My Girls” by Animal Collective.

This playlist also features one of my favorite songs: “Lola” by The Kinks. It is just so catchy (and subversive), and I love singing “C-o-l-a co-la” and “L-o-l-a Lo-la“; there’s just something fun about that. And speaking of songs that are fun to sing along with, “What’s Up?” by 4 Non Blondes definitely fits that category. You can’t help but shout the chorus.

What was on rotation for you in August?
