Yes, there was a little bit of a Tori Amos festival going on. As a sort of preparation for what was then her upcoming album.

However, it's worth mentioning that the "festivities" were a bit sporadic and spread across the month, which means that I did listen to other albums in between rather than being 100% committed. Sometimes I went as many as 5 days without a Tori Amos album!

And of course there was classical music as well.  Mind you, the end result is still a pop music list that is over 50% Tori Amos.

So am I a creature of habit, and is this blog inevitably boring? Well... one thing that still doesn't show up here is the exploration I do with streaming services. My rule still is that one-off listens to music that I don't own does not qualify for these blog lists. But what it does do is create the shopping list. And I think the next significant binge purchase is more likely to be popular music than classical.
