Monthly Obsessions – January 2022

Better late than never! I always like doing these as a scrapbook of sorts. Last month’s theme seemed to be “cheese”: see “If You Leave Me Now” by Chicago and “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me.” Both are such ballads, and both urge you to sing along: ooh, ooh, ooh, no, baby please don’t go! Those high notes rival the Bee Gees.

I can’t really explain why I had “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” on repeat last month. Maybe you can take the girl out of the drama class, but not the drama class out of the girl? Either way, it’s also a pretty stirring ballad.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have “Godstar” which is a random and wonderful song that echoes ’80s pop. It’ll get stuck in your head on first listen: trust me. (I have one of my best friends to thank for that.)
