Benny Sings I Love You
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Sonar Kollektiv
Dutch songwriter Benny Sings‘ new album is a well-crafted, loving re-creation of ‘70s pop filled with some of the era‘s most egregious clichés: harmonica fills, up-with-people lyrics, and songs about rainbows. It‘s about as edgy as the Sesame Street theme song. But that‘s not the point. Benny‘s sappy, saccharine lyrics and romantic odes are an attempt to recapture innocence lost, making this album a very guilty pleasure best enjoyed alone. Would you have these lyrics-"Make a rainbow of 12 different colors...and piss off the clouds"-blasting at your next party?
