Music Monday: Japanese Breakfast

One hit wonders. It depends on who to talk to. I don’t claim to like every song a band releases. Unless you are a “superfan”, most listeners will have their favorites and their not-so-favorites*. So for me, there are some bands of which only one song really grabs me.

Oh, I try. I do listen to a few other offerings, but there is a reason why some songs get played and others do not. I’m not an album buyer. I don’t subscribe to any streaming services, so I’ll hear a song from time to time on the radio. It makes it a surprise to hear a song, rather than hearing it on demand. I can go months without hearing a song I enjoy, and it keeps it fresh.

Be Sweet received a lot of airplay, and for the longest time it was the only song I knew from the group, Japanese Breakfast ( an alternative pop band headed by Korean-American musician, director, and author Michelle Zauner).

Luck would have it I found another one which is not as good, but worthy of inclusion.


*As a teen, I disliked a song from a band so much I erased it from the cassette I had bought. If you are curious:
