These songs are like musical soap operas: dramatic, sentimental, emotionally manipulative, and often super cheesy. They’re the kinds of songs you’d be embarrassed to be caught listening to on your iPod, but which are perfect for when you’re with a group of close friends, riding fast in a car together or standing around a bonfire or celebrating after graduation. Listen to this playlist in small doses, with good company, lest you overdose on their corny majesty.
Psst! Hey! Can you keep a secret? This month's theme is TRUST, which is about honesty and its opposite, plus so much more. If you’d like to entrust us with an essay or a photo set, comic, poem, short story, or any other pitch you’ve got, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. ✪
