Herman Melville's famous novel Moby Dick; Or, The Whale was first published on this day in 1851, and we think it's safe to say that Captain Ahab was obsessed with Moby Dick. To celebrate this, today's Question of The Day is all about obsession. Let us know your favorite songs about obsessions by emailing us at morning@wfuv.org or leaving a comment below.

What we played:

"Posession" - Sarah McLachlan

"Every Breath You Take" - The Police

"I Will Posess Your Heart" - Death Cab For Cutie

"Changed The Locks" - Lucinda Williams
