Confession: I have a weird thing for spelling songs. What’s a spelling song, you ask? Well, it’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like–a song in which a word is {repeatedly} spelled out instead of just said or sung. It’s fine–no one else knows what I’m talking about when I reference spelling songs, either. “Respect” by Aretha Franklin, for example, is totally a spelling song…in fact, it’s probably the original spelling song! See? They’re totally a thing. As far as I’m concerned, spelling jams are basically their own musical genre. In their honor, I bring you this installment of Power Playlists: Spelling Songs. I’ve even included a notation for what word each song spells out. I love you that much. {And tbh, it wasn’t all that difficult considering that the majority of these songs have their spelling words in the title.} Here’s the spelling song playlist you never knew you always wanted.
