I imagine everyone else has already read this but if not... just dive in. I’m still crying. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/people-are-seeing-cats-while-high-out-of-their-minds-...

I’ve the morning making an extended mix of Don’t Start Now, so that the final, glorious chorus keeps going for an extra minute. The kids have gone feral and the breakfast dishes aren’t done, but I feel like I made the right choice.

Watching this back, you see how far ahead of the curve Terry Wogan was as a host. With his tone, much copied since, this really could have been made in 2020.

Amazing stat in this article: In the next three weeks, Dance Monkey is projected to surpass 1bn streams on Spotify, earning ⁦ @Tones And I⁩ and her team about $4m in royalties. https://www.musicbusinessworldwide.com/even-justin-biebers-spotify-gaming-fans-cant-unseat-dance-mon...

The president of the Recording Academy has been put on leave following allegations of misconduct. The Grammys are in just 10 days. Yikes. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/music/story/2020-01-16/grammys-deborah-dugan-recording-ac...
