I used to be embarrassed that I really like a song like this because I cared whether people thought I had good taste in music.
But today I’m like, screw it. If you don’t have room in your life for “Sweet Love” by Anita Baker, I feel sorry for you. If it’s just not your taste, that’s cool, but if you’re trying to deny yourself the satisfaction because–like the old me–you had internalized some snide music critic telling you this isn’t “good music”–well tell that person to bugger off. Plus, I bet those people are wrong about it not being technically good music.
And play “Sweet Love” on repeat.
