An Inspirations Obsession?
Other bloggers have stated that I have an obsession with the Inspirations. This frankly puzzles me. I like them a bit in some ways and less in others. I like their live shows more than their albums. Archie Watkins isn’t my favorite tenor, but I don’t vehemently hate him either. Their song selection is a mixed bag; I really like some of the songs they introduce, and don’t care for others.
So I guess I just have mixed feelings about the group. They would be on my top 20 list of favorite groups, but they’d be somewhere around #15.
I thought an obsession was “the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc.” The Inspirations don’t dominate my thoughts; I mention in passing that I liked one song or disliked another, but that’s about it.
What makes that an obsession?
