Obsession of the Day: Schlager

Learn more about Schlager music here. Basically, it's schmaltzy easy listening pop that you would have heard on the radio in Europe in the 50s, 60s and 70s. A lot of it is pretty damn good, or at least entertaining in a kitschy campy sort of way. Just as there's been a renewed interest in light jazz and exotica from the 50s and 60s here in the US, there's a similar sort of Schlager revival that's been going on in Europe.
