Despite the poor execution, I do spend a lot of time figuring out which songs appear on Songs I Listen to Compulsively. HOWEVER, there are some songs/artsits I’ve been listening to that deserve their own recognition. Week to week I will listen to a handful of songs compulsively until I can’t listen to them until a few years later.
But I decided I want to do Songs I Listen to Compulsively: SPECIAL DEDICATION EDITION so I can gush about songs and people I’ll forever be in love with.
This week the spotlight is on queen, mother, God: Alanis Morissette.
In no particular order, here are the songs that I could listen to all day and lay in bed and cry and make up fake scenarios to day dream about to. :)
Remember, you can click on the title of the song for a pop-up window of the YouTube video.
Listening Status: Still new to me but I will listen to at least once a week until the day I die.
Why: “I’m too exhausting to be loved.” Amiright?
